Fairbairn-841 and Fairbairn-837 appear to represent the same person because: I think we need to merge the earlier Nenthorn born John with the documented Cockburnspath son John, ending up with the details of the latter on the profile.

The family is unlikely to have had two overlapping living sons named John, with the 1716 one born Nenthorn, a place normally associated with a separate Fairbairn family.

Happy to tidy up bio once you've completed the merge.


John is 30 degrees from Barbara Bush, 28 degrees from Amelia Earhart, 27 degrees from Kenneth Evans and 27 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
