About us

1889  Our founder Alexander Fletcher Ferguson went to Bombay (now Mumbai), India, as  Chief Accountant in the merchant firm of Ritchie, Stewart & Co.

1893 Whilst there Alexander Fletcher Ferguson became a successful accountant in his own  right and left the firm to set up in practice as A.F. Ferguson & Co. The firm prospered in  Bombay and other cities in the Indian sub-continent. In London it was represented for  some years by Viney, Price & Goodyear.

1912 Alexander Fletcher Ferguson left India to open an office in London at 27 Old Jewry.

1925 After being joined by one of the partners of the Indian practice, the London office  adopted the name Ferguson, Gilchrist & Co and moved to 10 & 12 Walbrook, London.

1940’s The offices were damaged during the blitz and the firm moved temporarily to 6a Sun  Street, Hitchin, Herefordshire. More permanent accommodation was found after the Second World War at 27 Old Broad Street, London.

1954 The London Office became known as Ferguson, Rowland & Davis and shortly after  moved to Bush Lane House, Cannon Street, London.

1981 The UK firm merged with Maidment & Co (formerly part of Maidment, Penney Quick  & Co) and its name changed to Ferguson Maidment & Co. At the same time it moved to 52 Lincolns Inn Fields, London WC2A 3LZ.

1999 The firm acquired part of Wagner and Partners to broaden its client base.

2003 The firm continued with its expansion plans by acquiring Barsham Bradford & Hamilton,  another long established firm of chartered accountants.

2013 The firm moved to its current location 167 Fleet Street London EC4A 2EA.
