Robert F Fairbairn (F-34)

FatherFrederick John Fairbairn (Jul 1901 - 1982)
MotherAlice Renee Birch (1910 - 2000)
WebIntroWith an excellent genetic match (66/67) between John(F-17), descendant of John and Jessie (JOHNSTON), and Stewart(F-38), descendant of James & Isabel (TAIT), it would seem likely that the suspected family group for John & Magdalen (BO) FAIRBAIRN shown on the Summary Patriarchs page may well be reality.

In addition Stewart(F-38) has exact matches (67/67) with Robert F(F-34), and (F-42), and (F-42) a highly probable paper trail match with a GD2 genetic match to RJ(Bob) F-44.

Stewart (F-38)'s line of James and Isobel (TAIT) is believed to track back to John and Magdalen (BO) of Lidgatehead, Fanns in Earlston in the early 1700s.
RF(Bob)F-34 represents the line of the Alexander and Isabella (AITCHISON), so far only traced back to James and Agnes (LINDSAY) with children born Ednam in the 1780s;
(F-42) represents the line of John and Helen (ATCHESON) who married in Edinburgh,and were rebuked for so doing in Legerwood in 1771, children born Smailholm, then Earlston, possibly Mellerstain.

No immediately obvious link presents itself between these three, but if Alexander is a family name for Bob's line, perhaps there's a link with one of the Alexanders contemporary with the John of Stewart's line.
The Alexander married to Betsy NEWTON however is spoken for, as is his son James (married Agnes BRACK 1783 at Lauder).
Exploration of a possible AITCHISON link may bear some fruit for a connection between F-42's and Bob's lines, and with Alexander being a family name (for F-34), possibly there is a connection to one of the early Alexanders in Mellerstain, Earlston?
