I am trying to find the ancestors of George Fairbairn who arrived in Australia in 1839.
This is what I have:

2) John FAIRBAIRN (sheep farmer Hallyburton, Greenlaw, Berwickshire, SCOTLAND)b C1772 m Jessie JOHNSTON C 1782-1861, dau. of Patrick & Margaret JOHNSTON of Middlestots.
3) James FAIRBAIRN 1804-1879
3) Rev. Patrick FAIRBAIRN DD. 1805-1874 m1 1823 Margaret PITCAIRN, m2 1838 Mary PLAYFAIR, m3 1861 Frances TURNBULL.
3) John FAIRBAIRN 1808-1895 m1 1837 Mary WILSON m2 1847 Agnes TURNBULL.
3) Margaret FAIRBAIRN b. C 1811
3) George FAIRBAIRN 1816-1895 m 1854 Virginia Charlotte ARMYTAGE 1833-1912 dau. of George ARMYTAGE & Elizabeth PETERS.
4) Sir George FAIRBAIRN KT. MP. 1855-1943 m1 1880 Jessie Kate PRELL 1860-1921 dau. of Friedrich Wilhelm PRELL and Jessie Usher DUNLOP.
5) Liet. Clive Prell FAIRBAIRN 1885-1961 m1 1913 Marjorie Rose JOWETT 1891-1951 dau. of Edmund JOWETT MP. and Annette Rose McCALLUM.
6) Sir David FAIRBAIRN KBE. DFC. MP. MA. m. 1945 Ruth Antill HARRISON nee ROBERTSON b 1916 dau. of Dr. Robert Affleck ROBERTSON and Mildred Dagmar Antill BURT.
7) Pauline Elizabeth FAIRBAIRN b 1947 m 1971 Peter Alan GOONAN b 1949
8) Daniel Felix GOONAN b 1974 (me!)
7) Ruth Rosemary "Rosie" FAIRBAIRN b 1952 m1 1974 Mark Shane LONGLEY, m2 John WATT.
4) Dr. James FAIRBAIRN 1856-1891 m Jennifer SMITH 1854-1936.
4) Charles FAIRBAIRN 1858-1925 m 1891 Elizabeth OSBORNE 1869-1919.
4) Tom FAIRBAIRN 1860-1918 m Lena SIMPSON d 1918.
4) Stephen "Steve" FAIRBAIRN 1862-1938 (famous Cambridge rower) m Ellen SHARWOOD 1974-1942.
4) Jessie Maud FAIRBAIRN 1864-1938 m1 1880 James William Montgomery LUMSDEN, m2 John Sidney BRAITHWAITE b 1874.
4) Frederick William FAIRBAIRN OBE. 1865-1925 m Rhonda Jane McLEOD b 1870.

I have many more entries of Australian FAIRBAIRNS if anyone wish to discuss them, but I would also be interested in John FAIRBAIRN, Elizabeth PURVES or the JOHNSTONs.
