Surnames: Ferguson Brown Robson
I cannot find them in 1911 so they may well have emigrated before then.

From Ancestry's UK Outward Passenger lists:
Name: Thomas Ferguson Gender: Male Age: 4
Departure Date: 9 May 1907 Port of Departure: Liverpool, England
Destination Port: Quebec, Canada
Ship Name: Southwark
Shipping Line: Dominion Line Master: J O Williams

Checking the image:
Richard FERGUSON Farmer age 34
Ann do Wife age 35
Jane do Child age 6
Thomas do Child age 4
(all English)

1901 census RG13-4831 folio 104
Salisbury Street, Morpeth Castle, NBL
Richard FERGUSON Head Mar 28 Railway Platelayer NBL Morpeth
Ann do Wife Mar 29 DUR Marley Hill
Jane do Daur 2 mo NBL Morpeth
Thomas ROBSON F in Law Widower 50 Coal Miner Hewer DUR Hebburn on Tyne

Seems to be the same family though "Platelayer" and "Farmer" are different trades. Also how come the Father in Law is called ROBSON and not BROWN.



I could not find a marriage for Richard FERGUSON and Ann ROBSON or BROWN. This census in 1891 starts to make sense of it. Note the age of Margaret vs Thomas.
1891 census RG12-4086 folio 38vs
21 Joisey's Sq., Stanley, Tanfield, DUR
Thomas ROBSON Head Mar 40 Coal Miner DUR Hebburn
Margaret do Wife Mar 49 NBL Haltwhistle
John HUMBLE Boarder Mar 21 Coke Drawer DUR Tanfield
Ann do Boarder Mar 19 DUR Gateshead
(so is Ann HUMBLE related to Thomas or Margaret? Possibly daughter of Margaret and step-daughter of Thomas)

Freebmd has this marriage.
Marriages Oct-Dec 1890
Brown Ann Lanchester 10a 446
Humble John Lanchester 10a 446

This is likely the death of John
Deaths Jan-Mar 1894
Humble John 24 Lanchester 10a 159

Then this is her re-marriage
Marriages Jan-Mar 1900
Ferguson Richard Lanchester 10a 429
Humble Ann Lanchester 10a 429
Stephenson Alice Lanchester 10a 429
Wilkinson Alfred Lanchester 10a 429
