Brief Clan History

Also known as Fergusson, the clan flourished throughout Scotland. In the south west of Scotland it traces its origins from the twelfth century Lord of Galloway, while in western Highlands descent is traced from the ancient king of Dalriada. The eighteenth century poet Robert Ferguson had a profound influence on the work of Scotland's nation bard Robert Burns

Argyllshire is the home of this clan. The Fergusons of Strachur claim to be descended from the Royal House of Dalraida. The Fergusons of Kilkerran descend from Fergus, who held his possessions by a charter granted to him by King Robert 1.

Sir John Ferguson of Kilkerran was created a baronet in 1708. The Fergusons of Atholl had charters for their lands from Balliol and King Robert the Bruce. During the 1745 Jacobite Rising the Atholl Fergusons supported Prince Charlie.

There are some prominent branches of the Clan Ferguson in Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Kincardineshire, Dumfries and Galloway.
Badges * Pine, Poplar.

The Fergussons first appear in Kintyre, and Kilkerran, the name of the Clan Seat in Ayrshire, derives from St Ciaran, one of the twelve apostles of Ireland who landed at Dalruadhain in the 6th century. The Fergussons in Argyllshire claim descent from Fergus Mor mac Erc, King of Scots c.500.

The Fergussons of Kilkerran in Ayrshire descend from Fergus, Lord of Galloway in the reigns of David I and Malcolm IV. The Fergussons of Craigdarroch in Dumfriesshire have a recorded history that dates from a Charter from David II in the 14th century.

By the 13th century, the name was widespread throughout the South West of Scotland. Sir John Fergusson of Kilkerran fought for the Royalist cause during the Civil War in the 17th century and his estates fell heavily into debt.

His grandson, also Sir John, restored the family fortunes by becoming a successful lawyer, and his son, James, became a Judge of the Supreme Court, taking the legal honorarium of Lord Kilkerran.
