I, too, am researching James FAIRBAIRN from Cockburnspath. However, my ancestor married Catherine ALLAN 28 May 1830 (according to IGI). Their children were William, Barbara, Peter, James, Robert, John, Janet, Mary and Thomas. Thomas was my ggg grandfather. Specifically, they were from Stockbridge, Cockburnspath. Was the book that Tom mentioned of any help?
