In Reply to: Fairbairn's of Cockburnspath by Norman Peters of 539

My paternal grandfather was George Fairbairn, born in Cockburnspath, late 1800,s he came from a large family that lived in a cottage near the path down to Cove Harbour. I never met me grandfather as he died many years before I was born. I met one of his brothers - Peter and a sister Eliza, both lived in Edinburgh. Peter had a daughter called Betty, and Liza never married.

My father was Ian Moncreif Fairbairn, we lived in Essex, I now live in Cambridge. My married name is Wilson, but I have retained the name Fairbairn
