James Samuel Burroughes (died 1912) was a billiard table manufacturer and local politician.[1]

On leaving school he joined the family company of Messrs. Burroughes and Watts Ltd., billiard table manufacturers, of Soho Square. He succeeded his father as chairman of the company and held the post until his death.[2]

From 1882 to 1888 he was a member of the London School Board representing Westminster.[1] He was a member of the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers and of the Honourable Artillery Company.[2]

A Conservative in politics, he was a Moderate Party candidate at the first London County Council elections at St Pancras South.

He died in January 1912 aged 71 at his home in Seaford, Sussex, following a long illness that had arisen from an accidental fall.[2]
