Hi, My greatgrandfather was Albert James Fair who was married to Eva Gertrude Eames, there gravestone is in Holy Trinity Cemetery in Westport. I'm lead to believe Albert's mother was called Maria Fair and father possibly John but I cant find any evidence of this. I believe Eva Gertrude was the daughter of Thomas Bunbury Eames. Albert and Eva's daughter, my grandmother was Adelaide Gertrude Mary Fair who married Freddy Clarke but died when my mum was 4. Would anybody have knowledge of the family and be able to lead me in the right direction of Albert's parentage? Thanks.

Roger, thank you so much! So I'm looking for details of John Fair in the Ballina area, that's wonderful, I was totally stuck as there seem to have been Fairs everywhere! Thank you for taking the time to assist me. Rick
