Early family


At the top of this branch are William Fairholm and Margaret Drummond who married about Haddingtonshire 1717 in Edinburgh. They had four boys from 1718-1724, all in Edinburgh. Their fourth son, Adam Farm / Ferme born about 1724, married Mary Crookston / Crookstoun / Coustan, in 1744 at Pencaitland, Edinburghshire. They had two daughters, and a son who married Marion / Mary Clarkson / Clerkson in1769 at Duddingston, Edinburghshire. Their descendants spread along both sides of the Firth, and some emigrating to the USA.

Several lines had surname variations, but in the 1700s, one of the lines narrowed down to Ferm/e by the early 1800s, but finally settled down as Farms.
