      History of Parliament Online:
      b. c.1647, 6th but 3rd surv. s. of Sir William Russell, 5th Earl and 1st Duke of Bedford; .. Magdalen Coll. Oxf. matric. 26 Oct. 1666, aged 20, MA 1667; travelled abroad (Italy) c.1669. m. (1) lic. 5 July 1682, aged 34, Elizabeth, da. and coh. of Sir Edmund Wright of Swakeleys, Ickenham, Mdx., wid. of Sir John Trott, 1st Bt., of Laverstoke, s.p.; (2) lic. 11 Aug. 1698, Elizabeth, da. and coh. of Richard Lloyd of London, wid., 1da. styled Ld. James Russell aft. 11 May 1694.
      By his first marriage Russell had acquired an estate near Whitchurch and represented the borough in Parliament from 1685. ... Russell was returned both for Whitchurch and Tavistock in 1695, but was unseated on petition for the latter borough on 13 Mar. 1696. ...In an analysis of the House of early 1700 he was listed as a member of the Bedford and Orford (Edward Russell) interest.

      Russellís second marriage, to a young widow worth £40,000, had allowed him to purchase a Northamptonshire estate, where he took up residence and thereafter allowed his electoral interest at Whitchurch to lapse. In 1702 he was returned for Tavistock on his family interest, but was unseated on petition on 21 Dec. 1703. Following the death of his nephew, the 2nd Duke of Bedford, in 1711, he was involved with his elder brother, Lord Edward, in the management of the Bedford estates. Russell died on 22 June 1712.
