John Ferguson was the witness from Carishader, Uig, Lewis, who gave evidence at Miavaig on 4 June 1883. He is quoted as being 67 years of age, which is born out when we find his entry in the 1881 census at 12 Carishader. John is a farmer of 10 acres, living with his wife Mary (also 63) and daughters Christina (39) and Ann (22). Jane Macaulay (9) is a granddaughter in the house; John Ferguson (4) is a grandson; he was born in the Black Isle.
I refer to Hebridean Connections for John's family history and movement between Uig and Bernera.
