Cornish lithographer(s)

Investigations as to where George Reginald Pellew FAIRBAIRN belonged led to an updated descendency chart for the family of James the engraver as George is his grandson - by a previously unknown to exist daughter-in-law, Lucy PELLEW.
This identification does assume that there is only one James FAIRBAIRN, lithographer, around Truro in the right time period, who died between 1881 and 1891.
There are only a grand total of 9 F*R*B*N* births registered in Cornwall between 1837 and 1915, 4 as FAIRBAIRN in Truro of dates to fit James and Harriet (BEDDARD), then James and Lucy, two of whom appear in baptisms indexed on FamilySearch.
The investigation also led to the inclusion of a Cornish page in the One Name Study analysis pages .
