James Fulton (27 June 1830 – 20 November 1891) was a 19th-century Member of Parliament in Otago, New Zealand and a cricketer.


James Fulton was born in Bengal,[1] and went to New Zealand in the late 1840s.[2] On 22 September 1852, he married Catherine Valpy. His wife was to become a prominent suffragette.[3] They had three sons and three daughters.[2] His two eldest sons, Arthur Fulton (1853-1889) and James Edward Fulton (1854-1928) were prominent civil engineers.

He played five first-class cricket matches for Otago between 1863 and 1868.[4] These were the first five first-class matches played in New Zealand, and scores were very low. He made the top score of the match in the first two matches: 25 not out in the first match, which Otago won, and 22 in the second, which Canterbury won.[5] He captained Otago in three of his matches.

For many years he was resident magistrate at Outram, a small town west of Dunedin, before taking up farming.[2] He represented the Taieri electorate from 1879 to 1890 when he retired.[6] He was one of the commissioners on the Royal Commission into sweated labour in 1890.[2]

He was a member of the New Zealand Legislative Council in 1891, from 22 January to 20 November when he died.[7] He was appointed as one of seven new members (including Harry Atkinson himself) appointed to the Council by the outgoing fourth Atkinson Ministry; a move regarded by Liberals as a stacking of the upper house against the new government.
