Redirected from James Barrie
He became a journalist at Nottingham, then London, and became a novelist. The first two novels were set in Kirriemuir, disguised as "Thrums" (his father was a weaver[?]). He then wrote for the theatre, including Quality Street, What Every Woman Knows and The Admirable Crichton. But he will be remembered mainly for Peter Pan.
He died in 1937 and was interred at Kirriemuir, next to his parents, sister and brother David.
