The Chronicles of Foxton
Sir James Hawthorne
Brother-in-Law of Lady Isobelle Hawthorne
Brother-in-Law of Lady Isobelle Hawthorne. The younger brother of Nathaniel Hawthorne, and now that Nathan is dead, the head of the Hawthorne household. Unlike his brother, James is not of warlike bent (though he is trained in the sword). He is more trade-minded, and seeks to grow his family fortunes by establishing mercantile relations with Foxton.
