Biographical data
Name: Roberton, James Paterson  
Born: 1834
Died:
 
Notes:
Was his surname 'Roberton' or 'Robertson'? Steve Mann gives his year of birth as 1833 or 1834. I am guessing that the 'J. Roberton' who played for Glasgow against Dundee in 1866 was the Huddersfield player, who we know was originally from Scotland.
