James Scott set up shop in Abergavenny in 1834, coming from Scotland (or London).  (Although the 1851 census shows James Scott to be aged 17 at time of that census – thus making 1834 his d.o.b.   ???)

The Scott family continued as confectioners in Abergavenny until 1979 (see no.17 Frogmore Street)
