Biography

This biography was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import.[1] It's a rough draft and needs to be edited.

Name

Name: John /Fairbairn/
Note: Family and Farrelton mill info contradictory, so either there were likely brothers John and David, brothers to William, or John was also known as David or David is simply a mistake, the evidence to date indicates that he was more likely John[2][3]

Birth

Birth:
Date: 1792
Place:  ?Scotland
Note: A 1792 date comes from the Wellington Co ONT file, but doesn't match that of the son of John and Elizabeth YULE that the file (erroneously) gives to be John marr. Jane WILLIAMSON's parents, so must be based on some family information somewhere that is yet to be found.
It does however closely match the John born to William and Ann (BROWN) FAIRBAIRN at Doddington and baptised in Wooler Non Confirmist church. This couple also have a son William, unfortunately not born Apr 1790.
John's brother William's son Archibald was baptised at Wooler.
The 1829 census isn't much help as it has wide age bands (30 - 60)[4][5][6][7]

Death

Death:
Date: 1847
Place:  ?Hawkesbury Mills, Prescott Co, Ontario, Canada
Note: fell from horse (this assumes John who fell from his horse, is our previous David married to Jane WILLIAMSON, and not the mercer John. The date does fit the information that Jane is a widow in 1851, but not necessarily the implied absence of John/David from the 1841 census)[8][9][10]

Reference

Reference: 15525

Occupation

Occupation: a farmer
Date: 1845
Place: Masham, Quebec, Canada[11]

Note

Note: I (Ross) have verified that the fact that my ancestor David built a Mill at Farrelton is in Dodd's book but have not found any further information on it. We have found more where David's son Archibald settled and is buried. (Nancy adds that Farrelton is the next town up the Gaineau River from Wakefield, so the two brothers had the monopoly on mills in the area)
Subsequent info from Reby's book also names John as having built a mill at Farrelton, with the same Archibald and William sons and William's wife assigned to Archibald[12][13][14]

Marriage

Husband: John Fairbairn
Wife: Jane Williamson
Child: David Fairbairn
Child: John Fairbairn
Note: A tree Bart copied from the Wellington Cty archives shows Jane, mother of Archibald, David (mar. Charity), James, William, Agnes and John, as Jane WILLIAMSON and marrying 1816 to John FAIRBAIRN, s/o John F and Elizabeth YULE. This John actually married Julian BOAK and stayed in Scotland.[15]
Marriage:
Date: EST 1818
Place:  ?Quebec, Canada
Note: Was Jane married to John or David?
The links between Jane and John are in the Wellington Co, ONT FAIRBAIRN family file, which has a number of errors, but presumably stronger in what is getting to living memory for presumed descendant Norah Carlow.
Evidence places Jane with all of the sons, either by proximity or on the same census, except David whose only appearance is as the likely informant for her death. The only real "proof" of David's name is that Doug Brown's family records show that David that mar. Charity was David II in the history he inherited.
For now however, given Agnes is highly likely to be a dtr of Jane (living next door in 1851 and Jane living with them in 1871), the naming pattern of Alex and Agnes' family indicates Agnes' parents may be a John and Jane.[16][17][18][19][20][21][22]
