Ferguson of Polebrooke Hall, Northamptonshire

This family is descended from one of two brothers, Andrew and Victor FERGUSON, who settled in the North of Ireland having 'fled Scotland at the time of the Rebellion.' They are said by family tradition to have been officers in the army of William of Orange.
