Martin D Fairbairn (F-1)

FatherDouglas K Fairbairn (1913 - 2007)
MotherKathleen M Withey
Y-DNA DetailOnly Martin, of all the lineage 1 Fairbairns, has 641 = 10 (j) (although one of the two FARRIS matches also does so), so this is assumed to define the line of at least John, son of Archibald and Janet (SCOTT), given that a descendant of John's brother Archibald has the modal value of 641=11 (k) (as does Michael (F-16) a descendant of Archibald (married Janet SCOTT)'s assumed brother Walter).
Martin's results, although sharing 391=9 and 520=21, do not share 534 = 18, which is presumably why a clustering program (Neighbor, part of the Phylip package) branches Martin's line prior to where the rest of Lineage 1a meet, rather than matching him more closely to his papertrail relations F-14, F-29, F16.

Link2HaploGrpInfo(Group)Click here to see those sharing Martin's haplogroup I-BY21380 confirmed, along with three others in Lineage 1e who have tested BigY, this being a newly created (Feb 2018) subgroup of the prior I-Y32666/I-BY21365 which is currently the parent group of the SNP tested yDNA matching Fairbairns and Elliotts who are also tested BigY. 
DNAat(Matches)Martin D's atDNA results show matches to: Michael (F-16) and Candice Fairbairn FM-2; both Michael and Candice having double doses of Fairbairn genes to account for their matching Martin where closer relations don't meet the usual matching criteria.
