I was most intersted to read your message regarding theFairlie family of DROMORE of County Down. I have an ancestor, William Fairlie, who had children by Ellen McDede/McDead as follows:-
Sarah Fairlie. Born 1807 William Fairlie. Born 1811 Died 1849. Married Agnes Wright 1839
I have all the details of William and Agnes's descendents if you are interested as I and my son and grandson are now the sole male line survivors as far as I am aware. However, there is a doubt insofar as William and Agnes had a son, John Wright Fairlie, in Scotland who in turn had four children (two of whom died as children) who I have been unable to trace.
If you are connected in any way I would be delighted to hear from you and swop information.
