(Note: This tree has been created from one sent to me by Sandra Cairncross of Edinburgh. It incorporates, and therefore will replace F-T-12 and F-T-40. Sandra has created a superb document based on this family tree, appearing to go back much earlier in time. It was done as a present for her father, Ronald. Sandra has asked me to include it in this site. It is a Word document and here is a direct link to it. The origin of F-T-40 came from the book, “Cairncross – History of a Scottish Family” by Arthur Fawthrop Cairncross and Bertram Lilburne Cairncross, Section No.5(d) – (5), page 174.)
