James County was created in 1871 from parts of Bradley and Hamilton counties. James County went bankrupt in 1919. As a result it was reincorporated into Hamilton County. James County is now extinct.[1]

Courthouse fires in 1890 and 1913 caused extensive record loss. The remaining James County records are housed in Hamilton County.[2]
