Andrew Fairbairn1

(4 Feb 1806 - 6 Jun 1863)
Father-AssmdJames Fairbairn (m. Margaret HOG) (bet. 1765 - 1771 - say 1844); Andrew is known to have had a sister Mary who "married John DARLING at Duns", but the marriage was recorded in the Fogo registers, where there is this likely family2,3,4
Mother-AssmdMargaret Hog2 (circa 1769 - Aug 1825)

BDMs

     Andrew Fairbairn was born on 4 Feb 1806 ?Peebles, PEE, SCT, Elizabeth says born "Edinborough (Peebles)", Cathy & Ray's info says possibly born Peebles; Gayle unearthed info that the son of Andrew and Eliza said Andrew emigrated from Stirling, which doesn't mean he was necessarily born there.
Neither have as yet been able to be corroborated from extant OPRs.
However, as family information also adds that he was a shepherd lad, perhaps he merely passed on memories of Peeblesshire?5,6,2,7
     Andrew Fairbairn married Eliza Ann Hagerman on 16 Feb 1833 Hamilton, ONT, CAN, Married, at Hamilton, on the 16th instant, Mr. Andrew Fairburne to Miss Eliza Hagerman.........................From "The Spectator" of Tuesday, February 26, 1833.1,8,9,10
     Andrew Fairbairn died on 6 Jun 1863 Smith Twp, Peterborough Co., ONT, CAN, at age 57; David MILLAGE has 7th Jun.1,11
With the family information that Andrew had a sister Mary who married John DARLING at Duns, there is additional circumstantial evidence that Mary may well have come from Fogo, the daughter of James & Margaret (HOG) FAIRBAIRN, James being the smith at Whinkerstones.
Naming patterns are fallible, but at the very least, Andrew's eldest son is believed to have been a James, and Mary's indicate her parents may be a James and Margaret.4,2,12
