From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      (1.) The son of Zebedee and Salome; an elder brother of John the
      apostle. He was one of the twelve. He was by trade a fisherman,
      in partnership with Peter (Matt. 20:20; 27:56). With John and
      Peter he was present at the transfiguration (Matt. 17:1; Mark
      9:2), at the raising of Jairus's daughter (Mark 5:37-43), and in
      the garden with our Lord (14:33). Because, probably, of their
      boldness and energy, he and John were called Boanerges, i.e.,
      "sons of thunder." He was the first martyr among the apostles,
      having been beheaded by King Herod Agrippa (Acts 12:1, 2), A.D.
      44. (Comp. Matt. 4:21; 20:20-23).
         (2.) The son of Alphaeus, or Cleopas, "the brother" or near
      kinsman or cousin of our Lord (Gal. 1:18, 19), called James "the
      Less," or "the Little," probably because he was of low stature.
      He is mentioned along with the other apostles (Matt. 10:3; Mark
      3:18; Luke 6:15). He had a separate interview with our Lord
      after his resurrection (1 Cor. 15:7), and is mentioned as one of
      the apostles of the circumcision (Acts 1:13). He appears to have
      occupied the position of head of the Church at Jerusalem, where
      he presided at the council held to consider the case of the
      Gentiles (Acts 12:17; 15:13-29: 21:18-24). This James was the
      author of the epistle which bears his name.

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   James, same as Jacob
