McFarlane is one of three players forming a little coincidence of their own: In Season 1902, three 'Mc' players played their one, and only, game for Carlton. In this regard, McFarlane is joined by Pat McNulty and Wal McKenzie in the single-gamer Club at Carlton.

Another historical oddity to McFarlane's brief career is that he appears to be the only Blue to have played out his senior career without Carlton scoring a goal, with Carlton only managing 8 behinds in McFarlane's only game.

James Robert McFarlane was born in Balranald NSW, with his parents were James and Ellen (nee Hepburn), but recruited from Bendigo and died at Frankston (age 83).
