(circa 1795 - 15 Dec 1848)
BDMsJohn Fairbairn was born circa 1795 ROX?, SCT, The 1841 census, if accurate, tells us that John was not born in Berwickshire, and theoretically between 1796 and 1801. The burial record assumed to be John in Coldstream, gives us abt 1795.2,1,3 He married Jane Waddell on 23 Nov 1817 Smailholm, ROX, SCT.1,2
John Fairbairn died on 15 Dec 1848 Coldstream, BEW, SCT.2,4,3 He was buried on 16 Dec 1848 at Coldstream, Berwickshire, Although his headstone, erected "By Christina Fairbairn, Coldstream" for "her father John Fairbairn Dec 1849, 51 years. Her mother Jane Waddel" shows 1849, it is likely that the headstone was erected later as a burial in Coldstream showing "John Fairbairn 53" as dying 15th, buried 16th Dec, cost 1/-, seems too much of a coincidence.3,4,5
