Harry Ferguson

Some reading this might ask Who is Harry Ferguson. He was born Henry George (Harry) Ferguson in 1884 near the town of Dromore, County Down , Northern Ireland. I pass his family home every day on my way to and from work. There is a Harry Ferguson Sculpture in the Harry Ferguson Memorial Garden across from the family home. Some of the things we can accredit to this man are the modern agricultural tractor, the worlds first 4 wheel drive F1 racing car (known as the Ferguson P99 racing car), the first Irish man to fly and also build his own plane. Anyone that knows the name the ‘Massey Ferguson Company’ will now know where the Ferguson name comes from.
