James Laurence was Theodore Laurence's grandfather and a wealthy neighbor of the March family.


Lonely in his mansion, and often at odds with his high-spirited grandson, he found comfort in becoming a benefactor to the Marches. He protected the March sisters while their parents were away. He was a friend to Mrs. March's father, and admired their charitable works. He developed a special, tender friendship with Beth March, who reminded him of his late granddaughter. He gave Beth the girl's piano.
