Company history

Originally Hawkins, Robertson & Co., the business changed its name to Robertson, Ledlie, Ferguson & Co Ltd on the death of Mr. Hawkins in 1878. The business was formed into a limited liability company in 1880.

In 1969 House of Fraser took control, for 1.4 million, of Robertson, Ledlie, Ferguson & Co Ltd. It was sold in 1979 due to a combination of difficult trading conditions caused by a series of strikes in addition to unrest in Northern Ireland.
