(bet. 1765 - 1771 - say 1844)
BDMsJames Fairbairn was born bet. 1765 - 1771 Fogo?, BEW, SCT, no immediately obvious births present themselves. It is tempting to assume that there might be a relationship to the smiths of Ednam, but that is pure conjecture from James' occupation and the fact that assumed son Andrew has a Charles in his family.4,5 He married Margaret Hog on 22 Apr 1795 Fogo, BEW, SCT; entry reads: "James Fairbairn, Smith in Whinkerstones, & Margt Hog both in this parish were regularly proclaimed and Married by Mr Davidson Minr of the Burgher Congregation in Dunse."1
James Fairbairn was assumed to have died say 1844 ?Fogo, BEW, SCT, because there is an 1844 death recorded in the Fogo OPR for a James, as yet unchecked.4,6
