Dorothy Maude Brigham1

(1894 - 1948)
Dorothy's birth was registered between July 1894 and September 1894 in Henley, Oxfordshire.1

Dorothy's marriage to Keith Macgregor Fergusson, son of Alexander Macgregor Fergusson and Jessie Amy Baller, was registered between April 1917 and June 1917 in Reading, Berkshire.2

She and her husband Keith left Liverpool on the Empress of France for St John, Newfoundland, but gave their eventual destination as China. He gave his occupation as 'Engineer.3'

Dorothy arrived in London on 15 September 1921 on the Syria from Singapore, giving a last country of permanent residence as FMS (Federation of Malay States) and returned to Penang on the Macedonia, leaving London on the 4 Aug 1922 accompanied by her child Bruce. As he was aged 1 on the first trip, we presume he was born in the Malay States.4,3

She and her husband Keith left Penang for Pymouth on the Naldera, which arrived in London on the 25 April 1924, accompanied by their child Bruce.5

In 1928 Dorothy petitioned Keith Macgregor Fergusson for divorce.6

Her will was probated in London on 25 March 1948 with her estate valued at £3750/15/11. She was recorded as a 'single woman', so presumably did not re-marry after her divorce.8
