  1. We visited these cottages in 2003, and met Mrs Sproule, who lived in the cottage second or third from the far end.. My great-great-grandfather, James Ferguson was the Head Coachman at Loughry Estate when it was owned by the Lindesay Family, and he and his family would have lived in one of these cottages. Three of his daughters came to Australia in 1879.
