Biography

This biography is a rough draft. It was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import and needs to be edited.


Name

Name: Archibald /Fairbairn/ [1][2][3]

Birth

Birth:
Date: EST MAR 1783
Place: , Par. of Whitsome & Hilton, Berwickshire, Scotland
Note: this date being taken from the Whitsome baptism, which may or may not be him[4]
Birth:
Date: BET 1787 AND 1791
Place: , , Berwickshire?, Scotland
Note: this being the likely age from the 1841 census, albeit not always accurate[5]

Christening

Christening:
Date: 16 MAR 1783
Place: , Par. of Whitsome & Hilton, Berwickshire, Scotland
Note: father Archibald was a hynd, resident on the now extinct farm of Whitsome Vaults, no mother mentioned so it may not be this Archibald he belongs too, and although he is a tad earlier than I would expect for someone saying he was 50 in the 1841 census, Archibald and Alison (CROSSER) did have a son (my Walter) who said he was born in Swinton, which is very close. In addition, the 1841 shows that he wasn't born in Roxburghshire, which does add some weight to this theory So on balance, I believe it is highly likely to be this Archibald's baptism[6][7][8]

Death

Death:
Date: MAY 1842
Place: St Boswells, , Roxburghshire, Scotland
Note: (Janet shows up in 1851 as a widow living with son Walter, and there's a mortcloth payment of 3/- on May 22nd for "Archd Fairbairn" in the St Boswells OPR)[9][10][11]

Burial

Burial:
Date: 22 MAY 1842
Place: St Boswells, , Roxburghshire, Scotland
Note: (date assumes the mortcloth was paid for the day he was buried)[12]

Child: Jeany Fairbairn
Child: Catharine Fairbairn
Marriage:
Date: 01 APR 1810
Place: St Boswells, , Roxburghshire, Scotland
Note: OPR and igi only give A., but subsequent children's christenings give Archibald as father, so I assume it was Archibald who married Janet[13]

Place: Greenwells Glenburney, Par. of Melrose, Roxburghshire, Scotland
Note: Archibald, ag. lab. 50, not b. cty, Janet 40, b cty. Assumed children: John 20, joiner; Helen 25, Walter 15, ag lab; Catharine 12, all but John b cty.[14]
