Herbert Henry Fairbairn.
What was his story? I've always wondered.
He was born, the illegitimate child, of Maria Fairbairn in June quarter 1880.
And he was buried in Smethwick Cemetery on 27 July 1890.
He was just 10 years old.
His mother had recently married Thomas Boot on 6 April 1890 at Old Church, Smethwick. She went on to have three more children: Frederick (1882), Thomas Henry (1891) and Nora (1893).
