Biography

Archibald Fairbairn son of James Fairbairn & Joan Forsyth

Born abt 1822 Jedburgh, Roxburghshire, Scotland [1]

1841 census says not Selkirkshire, 1860 says Selkirkshire, descendants say Jedburgh. Not obvious on the IGI or the OPRs, but as the family appear to have moved to Selkirk after being in Jedburgh, I'll assume Jedburgh is the more accurate place Henderson-2297 07:20, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
