Fairbairn family history:
I married to Stephanie Louise (Rea) in 1994
and we have 3 children (Jamie 4, Connor 2& Caitlin 1). I was born in Amersham in Buckinghamshire, England in 1971.
My father is also James (Neil) and was born in Rugby, Warwickshire in 1994. He married
Kiera Louise (Watson) in 1970, and also have a daughter, Anne Margaret (b.1978).
My grandfather, John William, was born in London at the turn of the century (died 1992) but spent much of his youth in Tyneside, and married Margaret (Land) in the 1930's. They also had 2 daughters, Audrey and Margaret (aka Peggy).
His older brother was also called James (traditional name for the eldest boy in teh family)and lived in Bradford for most of his life.
His father (my great-grandfather), James again, lived in Tyneside I understand, but originated from the Scottish boarder town of
Jedborogh. From my grand-fathers research we have traced the family line back a further 3 generations (all James' again!) in that location to the middle of the 18th Century.
My great,great,great-grandfather was (according to my grandfather) the older brother of Sir William Fairbairn the famous industrialist and designer, and a contemporary rival to Brunel. I have a more detailed family tree, so e-mail me if you want to know anymore (or think you might be
