EPS lecturer James Paton was probably unrelated to
John Naismith Paton b. Kilmallie,
Argyll, who became a photographer at 294 Shields Road Glasgow.
John Naysmith Paton
did have an older
brother named James, born 1855. He appeared in the 1861 census,
but has not been found in the 1871 census. If he survived and
became a photographer, he might have been the EPS lecturer.
