James Paxton
Romford
Born in Musselburgh in 1874. He began his career as assistant at Purley Downs and was appointed as the first professional to the Bray club in Co Wicklow in 1897. This was followed by spells at Royal Guernsey and Romney Sands.

The bulk of his career was as professional to the Romford club in Essex where he was between 1907 and 1926. Nephew of Peter Paxton. Responsible for two byways on the path of club evolution, the Shaw Stewat putter with a ridge on the face to impart topspin and the use of a proprietary fibre insert in woods rejoicing in the name of Paxtonite.

He died in Romford in 1928 and is buried there.
