Alexander FERGUSON1

(1912 - 2005)
Father*Alexander FERGUSON1 b. 1882, d. 1966
Mother*Catherine Sinclair (Kate) McINNES1 b. 1882, d. 1959
Alexander FERGUSON
(1912-2005)
Alexander FERGUSON was born at 61 Exeter Drive in Partick, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, on 25 January 1912.1,2

The following comes from a 6p book 'All About Baby', probably written by his mother: "He is called after his father, being the man his mother thought the most of on the wide world. Born at 61 Exeter Drive, Partick, Glasgow on 25th day of January in the year 1912 at 1.30pm o'clock. Born on a Thursday. Thursday's child is merry and glad. He has a mole under his left knee and another on calf of right leg.
Baptised at 61 Exeter Drive on Friday 7th March by Principal McCullough. Baby was carried to the room by his Aunt Tina and behaved like a little swell. His wee cousin Peggy being an interested spectator. Baby's weight: at 3 months 11 1/2 lbs; 2 stone 4 lb at 2 years.
May 18th, Saturday, got his photo taken. His last day in long dresses. First short clothes on Sunday May 19th 1912 (& shoes).
Took whooping cough in August so we did not get holidays. Was not very bad and was as good as gold through it all. He now knows the use of his feet.
Cut his first tooth on Saturday 21 Sept 1912.
Had been walking round the chairs for two months. Auntie Jean sent him off on his own on Sunday afternoon in 848 Argyle St where he was visiting his Grandpa. Took his first step on Sunday April 6th 1913.
He was out in the pram and saw a horse and he said Gee-up, but had been saying Ta Ta and Da Da for a long time, while his wee cousin Peggy taught him to say Chi Chi to Pussy at Christmas. Spoke first word on Sunday March 23rd 1913.
Got his first horse on Friday 7th November 1913. Nearly went off his head with joy. Papa made him a big engine in September, it has a back seat. Named horse Powerful.
The two greatest surprises of his life were when he saw his wee sister in short clothes, and when his Papa shaved off his moustache on Thursday Dec 18th 1913 - did not know him for hours."2


He was a student at Hamilton Cres School and received a reference from Thomas Martin, Headmaster, probably when he left (aged 14), as he felt the school could not teach him much and his parents needed further income on 21 September 1926.3

His mother somehow engineered his employment with the Glen Line out of Glasgow, and his discharge book (issued by the UK Board of Trade, No. R43382 for seaman 263915) shows various engagements up until his Ranginui voyage to New Zealand. These include the Glenardle (Oct 1927 - Nov 1928, 3 voyages as Mess room boy), Arracan (Mar 1929, Apr 1931, 5 voyages as Cadet), Henzada (Apr 1931, Apr 1933, 5 voyages as Cadet) and Ranginui signon (Jun 1936, Able-bodied Seaman).4 His papers include an Argentine Certificate of Identification for Seamen; issued while a Cadet on the Henzada (Henderson Line). Stamps show he visited Argentina in August 1932 and October 1934.5 He was employed by P Henderson & Co as a Cadet until 7 Apr 1933 aboard the Arracan and Henzada.6 He received a Certificate of Profiency as a Watcher in Radiotelegraphy on 25 September 1929.7 Alexander was registered as #35905 on the Register of Midshipmen of the Officers (Merchant Navy) Federation and with the Navigators and General Insurance Co Ltd on 19 April 1933.8
Now in the depths of the depression, and laid off, his Unemployment book shows his registration on 9 April 1935 at Glasgow, Lanarkshire.9

He thought fondly in later years of the time he spent 'on board a yacht during the summer' - the yacht Dorcas, of which he seemed to be the sole caretaker for an absentee owner.10

He was signed on 17 June 1936 at Bowling, Dunbartonshire as Seaman on the delivery voyage of the scow Ranginui, to New Zealand. Click the camera icon to see the Ranginui as she was later altered for the Northern Shipping Co.11,12
After arriving in New Zealand, Alexander signed on as 4th Officer with the Union Steamship Co on the Marama at Wellington on 21 October 1936.13
Alexander then joined the Union Steamship Co as 3rd Officer on a variety of vessels: Gabriella, Wingatui, Karepo, Kartigi, Tamahine, Omana, Waipori, Waimarino, Kaiwarra.13 He received a Radio-Telegraph Operator's Certificate, Third Class, numbered WN 121 at Wellington on 26 September 1938.14 He received probably his first driver's licence at Christchurch, Canterbury, on 1 June 1939; also a June 1939 licence issued in Melbourne, and another in 1940 in Dunedin.15 Alexander's continued working with the Union Steamship Co as 2nd Officer on a variety of vessels: Poolta, Kakapo, Kaimiro, Karetu, Kaiwarra, Wingatui, Kartigi, Kiwitea based at Wellington from 1940.13,16

He married Berys Hunter MACDONALD, daughter of Arnold Morell (Dick) MACDONALD and Ella Mary MORRIS, at St Luke's Church in Remuera, Auckland, on 13 October 1941.17,18,19,20

He received his Master's Certificate (Foreign-going) at Wellington on 19 February 1943.21 He remained with the Union Steamship Co as 2nd Officer on the Kiwitea (acting Chief Officer for the first week) from 1944.13

With a growing family, he now felt it was time to seek a shore job and so worked as a Harbourmaster's Assistant and Dredge Officer at a number of New Zealand ports.22

He was given authority to wear War Medals, namely the 1939-43 Star Medal Ribbon, Star Medal (and clasp) by the Marine Dept at Wellington on 17 September 1945.23

Alexander worked as Mate on the Motu (3 engagements until August 1952) at New Zealand on 18 September 1951.11

He received a Restricted Radio-Telegraph Operator's Certificate, numbered NN107 at Nelson, Nelson, on 26 August 1957.14

He was appointed as a Marriage Celebrant on 12 November 1982.24 Stanley Robert CUTHBERTSON and Dorothy May (Doe) McCAFFERY were married by Alexander FERGUSON (as Marriage Celebrant) at Nelson, Nelson, on 26 April 1983.

He signed a will dated 27 October 1999 in Nelson, Nelson, replacing an earlier one of 29 May 1962.25

Alexander died on 7 January 2005 at 1.45pm at Nelson Hospice, 36 Manuka St in Nelson, Nelson, at age 92 of gall bladder cancer.26,27,28,29,30 His funeral was held at Nelson, Nelson, on 12 January 2005.26,31 He was cremated on 12 January 2005 at the Golden Bay/Motueka Crematorium.26

After demob. he was unable to immediately return to the shipyards due to the post-war depression, although he later did so. He also worked with the Glasgow City Corporation Parks & Reserves after the General Strike.4
