It's getting interesting!
This all started by my research into his brother David Guthrie-- see particularly Rootschat post by rosie17, reply 10, 23 Nov 2018 under Angus. Scotland
David Guthrie, Veterinary Surgeon/Blacksmith died at Liverpool Asylum. NSW. Australia on 27 Aug 1898.

Possibly out of business in 1902? Gamage's was selling off his stock in October that year

Thanks Shaun,
Well spotted!
I wonder if he died in 1901/1902 or went bankrupt and did he leave a will ?

This looks like him on the 1891 census address Cambridge Circus Harrington Mansions
St Giles North London

James Guthrie single age 36 born Scotland ..Lamp Manufacturer & Glass Merchant ( boarder )

The Electoral Rolls records as mentioned he is at 9 Leather Lane was there in 1890 as mentioned on the information on death record for David ....Not seeing a will so far or any sighting of him  on the 1911 census ....Perhaps he returned to Scotland

I can update this thread as follows:
James was born on the 23 November 1851 in Forfar and baptised there on 14 Dec 1851.
Kelly's 1891 London Post Office Directory states

Guthrie James & Co. Lamp manufacturers and glass merchants.
Manufacturers of lamps in copper and brass and wrought iron.
Office & warehouse   9 Leather Lane. Holborn
Show Rooms   117 Holborn
Works   Shepherds Bush
Telegraphic Address "Guthrionus, London"

As shown above his entire stock was for sale in Oct 1902.
I am still keen to know why and what became of James.

Look forward to receiving any new information.
