Barrie,
Your family appears to be very old as suggested by the following record:

24th Feb. 1580-81. Confirmation of charter by the Commendator of Crossragnel by which 'ad fendi-firmam dimisit Thome Fergussoun in Thraiff et Jonet Greir ejus spouse...6 mercat. terrarum de Thraiff, 1/2 mereat de Dallikilling (per dictum Thom. et ejus subtenentes occup.) cum manerie hortis pomariis, silvis, antiqui extentus in parochia de Kirkoswald com. de Carrik, reg. de Corsraguall vic. Ayr.' - (Reg. Mag. Sig. iv. 121)

From 'Records of the Clan and Name of Fergusson, Ferguson and Fergus', by James Ferguson and Robert Menzies Fergusson, Edinburgh, 1895, p. 359.
