James Secord was merchant and a volunteer in the militia artillery. James and Laura were married in 1797 and moved to Queenston in the early 1800's. They were well off and financially comfortable. The happy couple had five children and life was good for them until the War of 1812.

James Secord, of the 1st. Lincoln Militia, was badly wounded in the Queenston battle 13 October 1812. The following May, Queenston was again invaded by Americans and this time they took the area. All Canadian men over 18 were marched off as prisoners of war, but James was allowed to remain in his home due to his wounds. Three American officers lodged with James and his wife, Laura Ingersoll Secord.
