James Loller

Bootmaker In Brief

James Loller was born in 1827 at Westbuckland, near Wellington, Somersetshire, England, the son of Thomas Rossiter Loller (1792-1855), wheelwright and Martha née Fouracre (1784-1865).  Prior to 1853, James and probably his wife Jane (d 1910), migrated to Victoria where their children Martha (b 1853; married William Butler, 1874), Thomas (b 1855), James (1857-1935), William (1860-85; Brighton General Cemetery), John (b 1862; married Ellen Toogood, 1886), Jane (1864-1946), Anna (b 1866; married Charles Morrish, 1888) and Alfred (1868-88) were born.  Described as a “Bootmaker”, James senior died from “disease of the values of the heart” on 6 August 1872 while residing at Halifax Street, Brighton.  On 3 April 1885, William died in tragic circumstances from the effect of a gunshot wound in what appears to be an accidental discharge of a rifle at Frankston.  Loller Street, Brighton is named after the family.
