George Fairs (1858-1942)


Fred Fairs - Here We Are

What courage George Fairs had to pack up the life of his family in England. It was 1911. George, a coachman, perhaps had the foresight to see that employment in his occupation was becoming less likely.

He left with his wife Ellen and eight of their nine children to emigrate to Australia.

Their eldest son, George Frederick (Fred) was already married with two young children, so stayed in England. It was another 50 years before Fred saw some of his siblings again.
