Looking for the above who seems to have disappeared without trace. His wife Mary Ann Ridley is living with her children and her mother and in Brampton but no trace of Fergus. She says she is married and says the same in the 1911 when she is still with her mother. I can't find him then either. One child says born in Edinburgh but can't find her birth on Scotlandspeople - in 1891 the family are in Durham, Fergus is a tailor.

Tried the usual ploys of surname without forename and vice versa. Has he left her, gone abroad, driving me crazy :confused:
