James MacKenzie the Elder was a Lieutenant in the Second Battalion Scots Guards, and was also Lord Provost of Glasgow from 1806 to 1808.
He married Louisa Balfour (born December 18, 1779) on November 8, 1805, at St. Cuthberts in Edinburgh.
They had nine children, the youngest of whom, James MacKenzie (who received the name of his father after it having been given to two elder brothers, each of whom died young), was born October 6, 1825, and died March 6, 1873, in Bonhill, Dunbarton, Scotland.
