When James was about 24 years old, he married Charlotte Lister also from Little Thetford. The couple had five known children.
In 1851, James was noted as the Publican of The Three Horseshoes pub in Little Thetford, a pub that would be handed to various members of the Yarrow family over the next 100 years.
They are also noted as being farmers with 71 acres, employing an impressive 31 labourers, a horse keeper (John Money), and a house servant (Eliza Suberton). By 1861, they were farming 136 acres of land, and by 1871, this has grown again with widow Charlotte noted as farming 175 acres.
By 1871, Charlotte had sent her two youngest daughters to Miss Thorndick's Boarding School at Bridge Street in Cambridge, whilst she had retired and was living with her daughter Elizabeth and her Grandson, Arthur Yarrow on High Street Road, Stretham.
She died in 1900 and was buried in Little Thetford Churchyard, whilst James pre-deceased her 37 years earlier and was buried in neighbouring Stretham.
