It's worth digging further into the Bishop's Transcripts, which may be indexed from the Latter-day Saints Church website <>.

The following is also in the Fairweather family history is from the Bishop's Transcripts of North and South Cockerington.

John Fairweather, d. 3/4/1693, m. Grace.
Children: Giles, ch. 1676, d. 1720
Francis, ch. 1679.
Mary, ch. 1682.

Giles Fairweather, ch. 1676, d. 4/9/1720, m. 2/2/1694 Jane Darnel, she d. 8/2/1715.
Children: Francis, ch. 8/25/1695
Mary, ch. 2/7/1697, bur. 4/28/1697
Elizabeth, ch. 4/12/1698, bur. 5/25/1698
Grace, ch. 4/9/1699, bur. 4/18/1699
Mary, ch. 3/31/1700
Jane, ch. 5/16/1701, bur. 6/25/1701
Giles, ch. 6/14/1702 [d.y.]
Ann, ch. 6/14/1702, bur. 7/24/1702
Giles, ch. 2/1/1704
Jane, ch. 2/1/1704
John, ch. 6/3/1705, bur. 5/30/1706
Edward, ch. 6/21/1706
John, ch. 1/17/1708, bur. 10/28/1762
William, ch. 3/27/1710

These records suggest the possibility of other Fairweathers in the neighborhood. We might even have common ancestors back in the late 17th century. Good hunting!

>>>> I am looking for a Christopher Fairweather who was supposedly born in Lincolnshire. I have found one in 1812 in Kirkton (Kirton?) in Lindsey to a William Fairweather and an Elizabeth unknown and I am trying to find out if he is mine.
