James Wells was born 1801 at Surrey, England . He married Mary Ann Johnson August 12, 1827 at Radford, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England and they gave birth to Francis Wells at Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England on 1832.
I believe James to be the same James Wells that applied for citizenship in Pennsylvania (National Archives; Washington, D.C.; Record Group Title: M1522; Oct 27 1864) and possibly him living with Pindar (Year: 1860; Census Place: Philadelphia Ward 22 District 1, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Roll: M653_1173; Page: 199; Family History Library Film: 805173; Weaver, born England, Year 1805) and possibly remarrying and dying in Port Hope, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada on Apr 15, 1876 (record says Birth: 1800 in Surrey, England).
