James Fullerton (courtier)
He was probably the son of John Fullerton. He was a fellow of Trinity College Dublin, one of the first two created at its establishment. Known as "a Scotch gentleman of great learning and very great worth" he was brought to the English court by King James I in 1610 to serve Prince Charles. He was Gentleman of the Bedchamber and Keeper of the Privy Purse to Prince Charles 1611–16, and promoted to Groom of the Stool in 1616, when Charles became Prince of Wales, a position he retained until his death when Charles became king.
In 1625, he was elected to Parliament for St Mawes constituency. During the Parliament, he worked on a bill to permit coal mining in Macclesfield, and worked on a religious address and a bill to prevent secret inquisitions. He was ordered to present Parliament's protestations to King Charles setting out their position against further financial 'supply'.
