The Fairbairn Cemetery was established in 1900. Thomas Fairbairn (1824-1900) donated one acre of land from his farm a few weeks before he died on May 24 1900. The following is from a newspaper clipping of the time: "Thomas Fairbarn Dead - Six weeks ago Thomas Fairbairn, a pioneer of Sandwich South, deeded one acre of his farm to the township for a public burying ground. Today the old man is dead and his remains will be the first to be buried in the lot that he converted into a cemetery. Fairbairn was 75 years old. He was an industrious farmer and leaves one of the best farms in the county of Essex. The cemetery on his property will bear the same name as his farm - Fair Creek. Mr Fairbairn was a nephew of the late contractor Fairbairn of Detroit.".

Was donated to Twp of Sandwich South by Thomas Fairbairn in 1900. As caretakers can no longer maintain the cemetery the Ministry of Consumer Services was asked to acquire licenses to transfer to City of Windsor for maintenance.
