WebIntroGiven the Learmond witness at the marriage of James Fairbairn to Christian Jardin, that James is assumed to be the one bap. 1747 to James FAIRBAIRN & Margaret LEARMONTH- BUT I would expect his parents to be a Robert and a Christian, given that Christian JERDAN appears to be the d/o Charles JERDAN and Margaret YETHOLM, indicating at least part of the naming pattern was followed.
Perhaps because Robert predates the marriage this threw the naming pattern out? Discounting Robert makes the naming pattern fit.
