WebIntroThe family of Archibald Fairbairn and Jane Blakey emigrated from Northumberland to Ontario about 1851/3. Archibald's birthplace varies between Durham and Scotland, with the majority of sources saying Scotland around 1813. The 1841 English census shows him as a blacksmith, born Scotland, and his marriage cert. says his father was an Archibald Fairbairn, gardener. The prime candidate for this latter Archibald was the one married to Janet Scott, whose son Archibald was baptised St Boswells 1813. This Archibald Snr is the forebear of Martin (F-1), so if this theory is true, then two dna participants should prove to be an excellent match. At 12 markers so far, this indeed looks to be the case.
All we need now is a representative from a proven line down from Archibald and Alison (Crosser) Fairbairn to fully confirm the assumed linkage of the Archibald married to Janet Scott as their son.
