Ferguson Genealogy & History

Ferguson is an Irish and Scottish patronymic surname, from the Old Gaelic "Fearghus": "fear" meaning man, and "gus" meaning vigor or power. It is a fairly young last name, first recorded only by the mid-fifteenth century, and then only in Scotland. Irish Fergusons are split between descent from Scots in Ulster and a prince of Galloway otherwise. Ferguson family history starts with the recording of John Fergusson in Kilkerran, 1466. The name spread to the US eventually, and several Americans are proud members of Ferguson genealogy, including Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson, New York Jets tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson, and Confederate General Samuel Ferguson.
