James Avery (b. 1620 – April 18, 1700) was an American colonial landowner, legislator, and a military commander in King Philip's War.

Avery was born in Cornwall and emigrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony as a child with his parents. As an adult he received several land grants in the vicinity of New London, in Connecticut.

Typical inaccurate wikipedia article (genealogy related; most of wikipedia is very good): (1) James could not have come with his parents since his mother never came and his father was before the court as late as 1653 for living apart from his wife; (2) There is no evidence that his father was in New England prior to 1642 when James was about 22 years of age. He could hardly be called a child at that point. See The Groton Avery Clan, 27-42, for much more detail.
