Y-DNA DetailWith more results now in, this theoretical James has been shifted from his theoretical father John (1688 - ) to a theoretical father Robert, in order to better group the subgroup of Lineage 1 "clump 2" who share 413a=25, themselves a subgroup of those sharing 570=18. 
Note(Parent Assumed)James ? Fairbairn ?? is the assumed parent of James Fairbairn **
We have a very close dna match between NJ(F-30), Doug (F-6) and LE (F-31). Both the families of George and Janet (Murray) and James and Elizabeth (Ashenden) indicate that their father would be a James, so for now, that's where I've connected them.
James and Elizabeth's 2nd known daughter was an Elizabeth, but the dna evidence is not showing as close a relationship between this group and John (F-17) whose ancestor is believed to be the James married to Elizabeth Purves, so another James and Elizabeth has to be found for this theory to hold (and George and Janet's 2nd daughter was a Janet, so this could be a complete red herring.)
