Your last line reads " Now I need Old Parish Records for the birthdate and names of parents for James born 1763 ".

I assume you mean 'married in 1763'. As the parish record of James's marriage is unlikely to name his parents, and as he most likely died before statutory registration began in England in 1837, I'm afraid it may be impossible to prove the identity of his parents.

If you receive any replies naming the parents, make sure you ask the person who sent it what the primary source was. Many of the family trees appearing on for instance are based on no more than guesswork/supposition.
