The Ferguson family was one of the longest established in Belfast, the first member here probably being Dr. Victor Ferguson who arrived with William III's army as a surgeon. His son was Dr. Ferguson, mentioned above, who, as well as being a doctor, was a linen merchant. His son John Stephenson Ferguson was also a linen merchant and founded the extensive firm of J. S. Ferguson and Co. whose offices were in the White linen Hall. In the early years of the l9th century he owned large bleach greens at Ballysillan and a paper mill at Antrim. He was President of the Belfast Chamber of Commerce from 1821 to 1832. He was a member of the committee of the Belfast Charitable Society and in the latter part of the previous century had been a Volunteer He also helped to found the Linenhall library. His son John Francis Ferguson continued the firm and for many years was a Deputy lieutenant for Co. Antrim. Like his father before him, he lived in Donegall Place in a house whose site was later occupied by Robinson and Cleaver's department store, and at the time of his death in 1879 was one of the last private residents in that thoroughfare. The firm continued as handkerchief and fancy linen manufacturers until well into the 20th century, with premises in linenhall Street West. See Benn: A History of the Town of Belfast, Vol.II,1880.]
