Summary
The Ferguson family papers, 1727-1943, consist of 18th- and 19th-century correspondence, business records, financial and legal documents, diaries, and family miscellany of the Ferguson and allied families. The materials in this collection concern domestic life and mercantile activity in England and America during the late-18th and 19th centuries. The correspondence of the Fergusons with members of the families into which they married, or conducted business with, comprise almost half of the collection. Genealogical notes, charts and clippings dating from the early- to mid-20th century reflect the research of Samuel Ferguson's great-granddaughter, Helen Ferguson, on the family's history.
Biography
The Fergusons were an English family that settled in New York City beginning around 1802. The patriarch, Samuel Ferguson (1769-1816), born in Halifax, Yorkshire, was a prosperous merchant who established familial and commercial relationships with other wealthy and socially prominent New York families, including the Walton, Morewood, Day, Ogden, Lyde, and Fisher families.
Provenance
Gift of Alfred Ferguson to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 1960.
