A Carter was someone who worked with Horses and delivered goods by means of a Horse and cart.
I watched a programme about the docks at Liverpool in the 1800s when dozens of ships were coming in from all over the world everyday with all sorts of products for the UK. The Carters were the people who delivered the products to the customers.
This 1858 Map shows an Iron Works on the Tyne at Gateshead, so James might have worked around that area in later years. I'm sure you'll get more help on the board.
