Fairgrieve family connections in Edinburgh, Scotland, pre 1850
August 5th 2004Suffolk, England
Are there any family members using this site? There seem to be no messages or any research information.I am a novice and simply put my name into Google to see what came up.
I was born and brought up in Edinburgh and will be visiting the city this coming October when I may try to visit Register House.My father was William Wardrop Fairgrieve (b.1900. My grandfather was Thomas Fairgrieve and my grandmother was Alison Wardrop.There were relatives in Gorebridge and Middleton,Midlothian.
Are there any connections out there? I suspect that as the name is not common we may be mostly interrelated in some remote way,though I believe the name has not been traced much before the late seventeeth century.
I see that this site is probably American but don't let that stop anyone corresponding.Maybe I can help this end.
