There's a rather tenuous link between them by the fact that James' father, also James (1788-1844), once owned the Cinderford Bridge mine which was also, at one time, owned by Moses Teague.

Moses was also once a part owner of Cinderford Iron Works along with Crawshay, Allaway, Pearce and Montague (the partnership ended in 1838) and these family names can often be found mentioned in connection with each other. Cowmeadow is another name that often crops up. James (the elder) having interests in various mines at different times.

So maybe they knew each other through these business connections.
