Fairbairn Family

My name is Clare Richardson, I am 45 and live in Fife, Scotland.  I have spent the last twenty five years on and off researching my family tree.  

I have been very interested in one particular branch of my family - the Fairbairns.  Firstly there seems to have been so many of them and secondly they seem to have stayed in these areas for so long.

This is a small site dedicated to the Fairbairns and also to the villages they came from.  

It is very much work in progress, I will add to it when I can.

I dedicate this site to my Dad Frank RIchardson who sadly passed away in July 2019.  He and I enjoyed researching our family tree and although he moved to Edinburgh he was always a Borders boy at heart.
