I am trying to trace the family tree of my G-G-GF, Robert Fairley who was born in Belfast around 1820. His parents were John Fairley and Eliza? Jane (nee Park) - no other details. Robert married Margaret McCulloch, born around 1832 in Armagh, Ireland. They both died in Hawick - Robert 26 Dec 1896 and Margaret 10 May 1897. I do not know when they returned to Scotland.
There were a number of children, I am aware of: John (my G-GF) born in Dalkeith, Edinburgh around 1853, Margaret born in Innerleithen about 1855 - she went on to marry Robert Howden, James born in Haddington, Edinburgh around 1862 and Thomas born in Haltwhistle, England around 1869.
My G-GF, John, was a widower (Marion Park?) when he married Ann Scott (4 feb 1860 - 19 May 1928) in Hawick on 14 Sep 1882. The only sibling, that I am aware, of John Fairley is my GF Robert Scott Fairley b. 14 Oct 1889 at 1 Laing Terrace, wilton, Hawick. John Fairley died in Hawick on 22 May 1892.
Has anyone got any further information on this branch of the Fairley family?
