Thank you for posting those Ena.
I'm not sure if it has helped or hindered, but the marriage of William FAIRBAIRN and Isabella BLACK did allow me to connect up some info I had on them.
In 1881 they were in Ilderton, and as Ancestry now has 1871 online, I checked them out there too, and added the info that William was born Ancrum, ROX.
He MIGHT therefore be the son of George F and Margaret (Someone) at Yetholm in 1841. Certainly the naming pattern of William and Isabella's children supports this, even if it doesn't prove it.
I couldn't spot William and Isabella in 1891, alhtough I think sons Andrew and Robert were still around Northumberland, boarding with separate families and employed as shepherds.
