FAIRHALL, James Frederick

✟ ≠ Pte 14153 9th London Regt, Royal Fusiliers. K.I.A. 3/7/1916 and remembered on Thiepval Memorial, Somme. b 2/8/1899 West Ham, and lived in East Ham. He was not yet 17 when he was killed, and not 20 as his Army record stated, before being corrected, which means he lied about his age on enlistment when living at Plaistow, West Ham. 1911C living in West Ham. Records are confusing. His father was William b1860 Reigate, and mother was Sarah Jane Standrien/Standing, b 1865 Hathersage (she is not on 1871C but on 1881C is in London). To add to the confusion, not only does the name vary; Standrine, Standrien, Standing, but also her place of birth; Derby, Bakewell, Hathersage.  However, the baptism records state Hathersage in 1865. Her sisters Grace b16/6/1863 and  Emily b6/2/1867 were also born at Hathersage. Their mother was Mary Ann Hodgkinson, a Hathersage girl who married Samuel Standrin at Hathersage in 1862.
