Isabella was a remarkable woman in many respects. Her life has been chronicled in the book: Dearest Isabella: The life and letters of Isabella Ferguson 1819 - 1910 by Prue Joske (available at alibris.com). The book is a fascinating account of the challenges and achievements of Scottish immigrants who left their homeland to make a new life in Western Australia. Isabella Maxwell was employer of William Forrest and his wife Margaret (nee Guthrie) who emigrated to Western Australia in 1842 as servants to Dr. Ferguson and his wife. In due course the Forrests became the parents of John Forrest, a great explorer, who became the first premier of W. Australia. For a detailed biography see the Australian Dictionary of Biography. She died on 10 November 1910 at Perth, W. Australia, Australia, at age 91.

     Dr John Ferguson was born in 1802 at Kirkmichael, near Blairgowrie, Scotland. He was educated at Edinburgh University where he obtained his M.R.C.S. in 1822. From 1829 - 1835 John was in private practice in Auchtermuchty in Fife. He married Isabella Maxwell, daughter of Dr John Maxwell and Elizabeth (Betsy) Stormonth, on 12 June 1838. Dr John Ferguson lived at No. 8 South Tay Street. He emigrated to Western Australia with his wife and 2 children in the Trusty and landed at Leschenault on 6 December 1842. He intended to take up farming but his medical skill was soon in demand. He attended many settlers, also Aboriginals and convicts. He was named colonial surgeon in 1847. His use of chloroform when he amputated an Aboriginal's leg on 13 April 1848 was its first use in the colonies, and only 6 months after its first practical test in England. He also showed clinical acumen by warning the colonial secretary in 1852 that whooping cough in the Anna Robertson could be very dangerous to the Aboriginals who, having had no previous contact with the disease, were extremely vulnerable. He thus anticipated by many years hypotheses concerning immunity. In 1852 he was the medical officer for convict road parties working on the Perth-Fremantle Road. In 1861 he was on the Central Vaccination Board. In 1867 he acted as immigration agent and medical officer for the Perth poorhouse. He purchased an estate with 322 acres on the Swan River in 1855, which had been the property of a Colonel Houghton, and had a few grape vines on it; however, wheat was the main crop. When it was realized some of the land was suited to grape growing, new vines were planted. The first year's yield of wine was 25 gallons; as the Houghton wines became more popular, the Fergusons extended their operations, in 1903 establishing a bottling and distributing works. He was employer of several indentured servants who emigrated with them, including William Forrest and his wife Margaret Guthrie. The Forrests in due time became the father and mother of Lord Forrest, a great explorer who was to become the first premier of Western Australia. See Australian Dictionary of Biography for a detailed biography of John Forrest. Dr. John Ferguson died on September 11 1883 in Perth, Western Australia. He was buried at East Perth Cemetery. His descendants erected a lych-gate at St Mary's Church, Middle Swan, in 1959 to commemorate the centenary of his association with the district.
