In the Southern Genealogist's Exchange Quarterly, Spring 1973 (V. XV, No. 65) appeared an article pp. 26 - 27) entitled "List of Emigrant Liverymen of London". It is a list of names of individuals who belonged to a trade (livery) in London in 1801-02 and who were identified as having "gone abroad". In nearly every case, it is assumed these men had migrated to the United States. One of those listed as "abroad" was JAMES SPARKS; his livery was that of barber.
