James Colville, 1st Lord Colville of Culross

James Colville, 1st Lord Colville of Culross (1551 - 1629) was a Scottish soldier and courtier.

His first marriage was in 1570 to Isabel Ruthven, daughter of Patrick Ruthven, with whom he had five children. In 1599 he remarried Helen Schaw, niece of William Schaw, an event which caused a feud with Francis Mowbray brother of Helen's dead husband Robert Mowbray. They had a further child together.

He was a distinguished soldier who fought in France for Henry, Prince of Navarre, later King Henry IV. He returned to Scotland in 1582 along with Francis Stewart, Earl of Bothwell, loaded down with commendations from his French patrons.
