Ferguson Clan

Meaning the ‘sons of Fergus’, the Ferguson clan can be found across Scotland from Ross-shire in the North to Dumfriesshire in the south-west – therefore, there is no common Ferguson ancestry due to the widespread nature of the name.

Despite this, the first recorded record of a Ferguson comes in 1464, of a John Fergusson – possibly descended from a John, son of Fergus who was a witness to a charter signed by Edward Bruce after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.

Despite having a widespread history, the Fergusons do have a clan chief, Sir Charles Fergusson of Kilkerran, who retains a clan seat at Kilkerran House in Ayrshire.
