The early family
branch is headed by John and Mary Fairholm. We suspect that John was
the eldest son of William and Ann Fairholm of Shelford, and so the
uncle of Joseph who heads the Gedling 2 branch, but can't prove it yet.
Mary's maiden name was probably Truman - in which case they married in
1798. John and Mary had five daughters and two sons, but we have only
been able to identify descendants for the youngest child, William, who
married Lucy Scothern in 1835. We only have current day descendants for
William and Lucy's second youngest son, Joseph, who married Annie
Wright in 1876. Joseph was a grocer.
The most recent information we have is that their descendants were living in West Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Oxfordshire. The spelling of the surname of this branch started to change from Fairholm to Fairholme sometime around 1840.
Gedling & Carlton
was a village to the east of Nottingham. The parish of Gedling included
Carlton which expanded rapidly and became a suburb of Nottingham.
Members of the Gedling 1 and Gedling 2 branches lived in these
settlements from the 1760s to at least 1901. During this time the
population of the two settlements increased dramatically. The total was
1,373 in 1801 and was over 11,100 by 1901. The map shows them in 1835.
Gedling is the rather spread out village top centre and Carlton is
bottom centre. Both of the settlements now form part of the greater
Nottingham urban area.
The old postcard shows Main Road at Carlton about 1916.
