The early family

This branch is headed by Joseph and Elizabeth Fairholm. Joseph was the third son of Jarvis or Gervas Fairholm and a grandson of William and Ann Fairholm who lived at Shelford. Elizabeth's maiden name was Waterhouse. Joseph and Elizabeth had two sons and one daughter. Joseph was an agricultural labourer. Their eldest son, John, married Ann Stancer and they had nine children - several of whom had some connection with Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Joseph and Elizabeth's younger son, William, married Elizabeth Allen (nee Sissons) and their daughter, Jane, married Thomas Barker.

We have identified present day descendants for this branch in Derbyshire and Scotland. The early spelling of the surname was a mix of Fairholm, Fairholme and Fearholme. Joseph's younger brother, John, heads the Basford branch.

Sarah Fairholme & David Brown

Sarah was the eldest daughter of John Fearholme / Fairholme and Ann Stancer. She married David Brown in 1892.  They had eight children, including Pasha, Bernice and Zena - unusual first names  at the time. Initially, the  family  lived in Lancashire and later at Hepworth in West Yorkshire.  David was a carpenter by trade.

Gedling & Carlton

Gedling 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.
