These pages are intended to consolidate information on the FAIRBAIRN (and variant names) garnered from many sources, answers being sought for the following questions:
- Where did the FAIRBAIRN name come from?
- How many FAIRBAIRNs are there now?
- How many were there?
- Where are, and were, they?
- How many different spellings of the name?
- And are they all related?
The last question is gradually being answered by the companion FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA Project, where, 50+ kits so far, are showing that the majority of the Scottish Borders based FAIRBAIRN families are indeed related in some way.
Happy to include links to pedigrees, and to list researchers, we're all in this journey together, and so many people have already helped me over the years it seems only fair to return those favours.
So, if you want to help on this journey, do contact me via the link in the page footers.
For the answers to the above questions, keep checking back at the links on the left hand side of the pages.
