Additional Notes James Stodart (1849-1922), merchant and politician, was born on 15 September 1849 in Edinburgh, son of James Dickson Stodart, accountant, and his wife Maria Louisa Margaretha, née Meincke. The family migrated to Melbourne in 1855 and 1856. Educated at Scotch College, James worked with Holmes, White & Co. and then Turnbull, Smith & Co., leading mercantile businesses. He followed Robert Murray Smith to the New Zealand Loan & Mercantile Agency Co. as its accountant, but left in 1876 to set up his own business as a general merchant in Brisbane. Winning the seat of Logan in the Queensland Legislative Assembly, Stodart held it from 1896 to 1918: he served in government (1896-1903 and 1908-15) and in Opposition (1903-08 and 1915-18). Stodart was chairman of committees in 1911-15. (Information from A. L.
