1. James Shirley Birth: in Marsh Gibbon, Bucks., England Death: 1814 in Marsh Gibbon, Bucks., England

1814 - James Shirley of Marsh Gibbon, labourer, will proved May 14, 1814. I give unto my son Joseph Shirley all that my cottage now in tenaments situate in Marsh Gibbon, one in my occupation, the other in the tenure of John Roberts, with all gardens (etc) for all the term estate and interest therein. I give unto my son Thomas Shirley one shilling. I give unto my son James Shirley one shilling. I give unto my son William Shirley one shilling. I give unto my said son Joseph Shirley all my household goods and furniture chattles and personal estate and effects. appoint my said son Joseph Shirley sole executor. 6 November 1810.

Is this the correct James Shirley who died in 1814? His children seem very old e.g. Thomas would have been 66 at time of mention in his father's will. Is Joseph Shirley (see next lineage) the correct generation for sons mentioned in the above 1810 will of father James Shirley?
