Ferguson family
I am interested in Charles Ferguson born in Deptford on 22 Feb 1841 the son of Charles Ferguson (occupation planter) and Elizabeth Field Ferguson. I believe that Charles Ferguson (the son),then a ship's steward, was married to Clara Exall in 1865 but the marriage was not successful and the couple split up. I have found a Charles Ferguson married to Ellen on the 1871, 1881, 1891 snd 1901 censuses. They have four children: Harriet, Fanny, Rosa and ? a Lillian. Does anyone know if this is the same Charles Ferguson? With many thanks. Gillian

red mail MACKESY from Ireland via Chelsea & Stepney!
Around the time of the potato famine, John MACKESY and his wife Ann brought their family over to England and were enumerated in Chelsea in 1851. Their son Patrick b. 1830 married Ann LYONS and emigrated to USA where they founded quite a wealthy dynasty. My 2 x great grandfather was Patrick's brother John who married Margaret McCarthy in 1854 at Virginia Street RC Chapel in Stepney. This couple next surface in Deptford where they raised a large family including my great grandfather Thomas Charles MACKESY b. 1862 who married Elizabeth REED in 1883 at Zion Chapel, New Cross.
