Members of the Fairfax family were prominent as Australian media proprietors, especially in the area of newspaper publishing through the company, John Fairfax and Sons, now known as Fairfax Media; although the Fairfax family no longer control the eponymous company. Some members have also been prominent in the arts and philanthropy in Australia.
Six generations of the family are descended from an Anglo-Celtic emigrant to Australia: John Fairfax (1804–1877), English-born journalist and his wife Sarah, née Reading (1826–1905). Both were from the Barford area of Warwickshire and emigrated to the Colony of New South Wales in 1838.
