    Notes 
    • [NEHGS-1893a] does not actually state that Robert Fairbanks and Hannah Elizabeth Lowe were married in Boston. But since they were both living in Boston at the time, the marriage was registered in Boston, and the officiating pastor was from Boston, they’re having been married in Boston seems very likely.

  • Notes 
    • [Fairbanks-1978] has Robert Fairbanks’ birthplace as Coventry, England in 1869. [US-INS-1898a] has Robert’s birth in Warwickshire, England on 3 Sep 1867. However both of these conflict with [Sligo-1867]. In this database we use “3 Sep” on the presumption that Robert knew his own birth date and that 20 Sep 1867 (from the Irish civil registration records) is probably Robert’s christening date--actual birth dates being recorded only very rarely in England and Ireland at the time. For the birth location, we use Coolaney, County Sligo, Province of Connaught, Ireland--First, because it is the only actual birth record found for Robert that is consistent with his father’s occupation, his mother’s maiden name, and the birth locations of most of his siblings. Second, Englishmen born abroad frequently lied about the location in order to avoid discrimination. It should be noted that both Coventry and Warwickshire are consistent with where Richard and Euphemia (Thomson) Fairbanks where living when their eldest son John Edward was born in 1862. [2, 3, 4, 16]
    • Robert Fairbanks and Hannah Elizabeth Lowe appear to have been living with Hannah’s parents at the time of the 1900 US Federal Census. [6]
    • Robert Fairbanks emigrated to the United States aboard the SS Pavonia bound for Boston from Queenstown, Ireland and Liverpool, England in Feb 1888. [8]
    • Robert Fairbanks and his family were living on Saratoga Street in what is now the Boston borough of Chelsea when his daughter, Florence Martha, was born in 1895. This fact lends confidence to Robert’s naturalization record, as it lists his address on Saratoga Street only two years later. [10]
