Biography

Notes

Ernest was the son of Thomas Fairbairn and Margaret Lumb. His early schooling was at George Street Normal school in Dunedin. As a young man he took on employment as a clerk. For 12 years Ernest was employed by the London & Lancashire Fire Insurance Company which he resigned from in 1913 to take up an appointment with Standard Insurance. Ernest was also a committee member of the Otago Rowing Association as well as competing on the water. He involved himself in community affairs joining committees like the Moray Place School Jubilee, vice president and president of the Pirates Football Club, member of the Oamaru Boating Club committee and providing his services as a starter at various regattas.

In 1911 he married to Helen Elizabeth MacLean, daughter of Charles Fitzwilliam MacLean and Mary Jane Townsend with 5 children being born during the marriage. Sadly, Ernest and Helen's first born, Victor, only survived for 14 days and is buried at Northern Cemetery. During WWI, Ernests' name was drawn in the 1917 reserves ballot. Ernest Victor Fairbairn died in 1963, age 76. Scattered ashes.[1]
