Small world!

Sir George Fairbairn's daughter Alison Mary (1884-1921) married James Alexander Stewart Balmain, my father's first cousin once removed. I have information on their descendants if you are interested.

My father was coached by Steve Fairbairn at Jesus College Boat Club in the early '30s and was in the boat that won the FAIRBAIRN CUP in 1930 (replica by my desk as I write).

However, I am interested in knowing details about and the family of Patrick Fairbairn (1862-1921, second cousin of your great-grandfather Clive Prell Fairbairn 1885-1961) and his wife Elsie Pearl Barton (b. 1884). Elsie Barton is another very distant relative of mine. I believe Patrick and Elsie had 4 children: George, John, Jessie and Gladys.
