It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

1 Sir Thomas Fairfax of Gilling Castle, Sheriff of Yorkshire, 1st Viscount of Elmley or Emmeley b 1574, d 23.12.1636
Both Commoners and BE1883 show Sir Thomas's marriages as 1st Mary Ford and 2nd Catherine Constable but TCP Fairfax shows them the other way round.

iv Nicholas Fairfax

a Nicholas Fairfax, 6th Viscount of Elmley d 26.02.1702/3
Commoners and BE1883 suggest that Nicholas became the 6th Viscount but TCP Fairfax of Emley does not, presumably because he died before the 5th Viscount. We follow TCP and so, for later Viscounts, disagree with the numberings used by Commoners & BE1883.

v Catherine Fairfax
Commoners and BE1883 Fairfax show the following marriages for this Catherine albeit the other way round. BE1883 Ingram reports that Sir Arthur's wife married Robert Stapylton and Sir Matthew Boynton before Sir Arthur. This appears to be confusion with Catherine's aunt Catherine below. Note that BE1883 Ingram did not mention her marriage to George Metham but did say that, after Sir Arthur died, she married a William Wickham. The dates found for George Metham suggest that at least two of the marriages were in the following order.
m1 Sir Arthur Ingram of Temple Newham Newsom d 04.07.1655
