Dulcius Ex Asperis

Tradition records that a family of the name Mackerras were originally Fergusons and owed their origin to a Ferguson who was prescribed for participation in 'the Forty-Five.' These Mackerrases simply adopted an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Fhearghuis and one of them is understood to have become a Professor in Canada.
