Basic Biographical Details

Name: James McLellan Fairley
Designation: Architect
Born: 1860
Died: 18 May 1942
Bio Notes: James McLellan Fairley was born in 1860, the son of Alexander Fairley, a captain in the US Army and his wife Mary Christian Young. He was apprenticed to Hippolyte Jean Blanc in 1875. Thereafter he spent five years working in the offices of Wardrop & Reid, Archibald Macpherson, Walter Wood Robertson of the Office of Works and Arthur George Sydney Mitchell, before founding his own practice. He passed the qualifying exam in 1886 and was admitted ARIBA on 21 June of that year, his proposers including Arthur Cates, George Washington Browne, John Kinross and Thomas Greenshields Leadbetter, all members of the Edinburgh Architectural Association.

In 1895, Fairley was taken into partnership by Leadbetter, having probably worked in his office for some time prior. Following Leadbetter's semi-retirement in 1909 Fairley took into partnership Robert Stirling Reid, who had been born in 1883 and apprenticed to Leadbetter & Fairley 1901-05 before spending some years in the offices of John More Dick Peddie and George Washington Browne until offered the partnership.

Outwith his professional life, Fairley was a keen angler and was especially fond of the Rivert Ugie. He was a member of the Cobbinshaw Association.

Fairley retired in 1938 and died on 18 May 1942 at Mount Pleasant, Inverugie, Peterhead leaving moveable estate of 5,047 8s 4d. He never married. He had two half sisters, Mary Isabel Young and Marjory Ruth Young, presumably from his mother's first marriage.
