"JAMES. From the personal name. Three persons named Tames took an active part in the foundation of the early Christian church: (1) James the Elder, (2) James the Younger, or the Little, and (3) James the Great. St. Tames was the patron saint of the Fitzalans, hence doubtless the popularity of the name among the Stewart kings, and Gaelic SEUMAS, q.v.

Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some James ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!
