The majority of the work was done by William Tyndale, who was burned at the stake for willfully perverting the meaning of the scriptures in 1536. The KJV took into account the Tyndale Bible, the Cloverdale Bible of 1535, the Matthew Bible of 1537, the Great Bible of 1539, the Geneva Bible of 1560, the Bishop's Bible of 1568 and the English translation of the Latin Vulgate of 1582. (source: The New Oxford Annotated Bible, page xi) I would be VERY interested in his sources if he says James had a translation done from the original Greek (or Aramaic).
