Yes, I think I found him on the 1871 census in Toxteth Park in Liverpool.

By at that time he was 27, the census just says "born in Scotland," and his profession is "warehouseman."

These 1870s brits didn't want to give me much detail to go on :)

Here's the link to the 1871 census for James with his wife and children
