James Barton is the brother of John Barton and father of PeteRoss, Finn and Adam Barton (who was originally thought to be John's son). Following an argument with his son Ross that resulted in him leaving home, James arrived in Emmerdale in an attempt to patch things up with his son after being told of his whereabouts by his sister-in-law Moira. However, Ross was adamant a reunion wasn't on the cards and James left.

It is suggested over a period of weeks that James has feelings for Moira, and it is later revealed they had a dalliance many years ago. The night before a meeting about the farm's potential supermarket contract, James tells Moira that he still has feelings for her and believes she does for him too. She is angry and the following day she tells her boyfriend Cain Dingle.

In 2014, James begins to believe that his nephew Adam months before Adam's birth. Moira is eager to ignore James' questions, but he is adamant that Adam is his so James takes matters into he's own hands and decides to do an online DNA check without Moira consent. When the test came back it said the was 99.9% that Adam was he's son.
