The LDS Ancestral files show George Fairbairn, son of Archibald Fairbairn and Mary Grierson, married Janet Purdie, b. 7 Feb 1802, dau. of Thomas Purdie and Mary Scott. The Old Parish Record Index of Selkirkshire shows that she was baptised 8 Feb 1807, the dau. of Thomas Purdie and Margarate Legget. The LDS files also show the children of George Fairbairn and Janet Purdie as Mary, Archibald, Thomas, Cecelia, Margaret, Robert, Charles, George and John. My line is through Ceceila Fairbairn, b. 1834, Melrose, Scotland, who married 1856 in Scotland to Robert Wintrup, b. 1835, Melrose, and followed some of their children to the the US where they spelled their name Winthrop. Please see all the information I have about Thomas Purdie at my Purdie website at Please contact me so we can exchange family information.
