The father of these 9 children, James Mathias Coulling (1786-1863) (ancestor chart), was the son of James Coulling (1756-1807), the emigrant from England.
James Coulling (1756-1807) was born in St. Ann's Parish, Limehouse, England, the oldest of the four children of David Coulling and Elizabeth Tiday. James was a tailor by trade and came to America in 1775 with George Coulling. George was born about 1744 (according to the log of the Ship Fortune) and was an upholsterer by trade. Both James and George settled in Maryland as four-year-indentured servants. The subscriber for James was Valentine Lees. Many Coullings are interred at Bladon where Winston Churchill is also interred.

Narrative based on letters, ship logs, etc. cited in the genealogy:
In the late eighteenth century, a young man named James Coulling lived with his family in Limehouse, England. He decided to leave home, and it was learned he had gone to St. James end of town. His father, David Coulling, hoped in time he would return. Instead, news was received that his son had gone to sea. This broke his father's heart, as he had always expected one of his sons to take over his business after his death.

James had agreed to be an indentured servant for four years, and left London on the ship "Fortune," sometime between July 10 and 17, 1775, its destination being Maryland.

Upon the ship's arrival in Maryland, James was turned over to the person who had paid his passage to this country. He only worked approximately one year when he ran away from his Subscriber.

He must have been returned to his master, for in a letter to his father, he told of the hardships he had undergone and the abonded life he led for some time, even after his marriage to Elizabeth.
