My Grandmother Phair families came from Ardfield, and Mallow, Co. Cork, Ireland. I have a connection with Col. Robert Phayre; It has been stated that any Phair/Phayre from Ireland are descendents of this Robert.
Take a look and see if you can make a connection into my work. use the index to find names, don't worry about the spelling of the surname.
I have William Barry Phair married to Rebecca Hannay Rainsford.William is the son of Andrew Phair 1757-1824 and Margaret Barry widow of Major Henry Barry. They were Loyalists and settled in Frederiction, York County.
As you can tell we are researching the same line!!!
