FAIRBAIRN, ---- SERVANT WITH, 32, OLDENBURG, MAY 1902
(Jan 1922). ENGAGEMENT REPORT. A family is not always best pleased when the eldest son announces that he is going to marry a girl at the other end of the world. Mr. Charles Fairbairn is, however, an exception, and both he and his daughter, Mrs. L. Wheatley, were delighted when Major Charles Osborne Fairbairn cabled that he was engaged to Miss Irene Florence Ridley. The pair have known one another for some years, and the Fairbairn family have met the young lady and think her altogether charming. Major Fairbairn served in the Flying Corps during the war and was lucky enough to come out of it with only a wounded arm. His younger brother, Lieut. James Fairbairn, was also wounded in the arm and had the very undesirable experience of spending two years in a German prison. The wedding of Major Charles Fairbairn and Miss Ridley will he celebrated almost immediately, and they will not be touring about the world, but coming straight out here to live at his station hom, "Banongil," Skipton. They expect to arrive about April. It is pleasant to record that the eldest son of this fine and well-known pioneer family is coming to settle down under his own roof-tree. By the way, whilst on the subject of this family, General and Mrs. Wheatley have just returned to town after paying a round of visits in the Western District.
(May 1922). ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT. The engagement is announced of Major C. Osborne Fairbairn, AFC., late Loyal North Lancashire Regiment and R.A.F., eldest son of Mr. Charles Fairbairn, and the late Mrs. Fairbairn, of Wooloomanata, Victoria, to Miss Irene Florence Ridley, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Ridley, of Sutton. Surrey.
