Henry George ‘Harry’ Ferguson was born in Ireland in 1884 and was an engineer and inventor who became known for his agricultural tractor developments.  1911 saw Harry Ferguson selling cars but over time tractors via his company ‘Harry Ferguson Limited’.  In 1938 an agreement, in the form of a famous handshake, was made between him and Henry Ford to create Ford-Ferguson.  This came to an end however in 1946 and Henry went on to produce the famous ‘Ferguson TE20’ or ‘Little Grey Fergie’ as it is more commonly known.  This tractor featured the three-point linkage which was Henry’s invention and in time became an industry standard.  In 1953 Ferguson merged with Massy – Harris to form ‘Massey-Harris-Ferguson’, known as Massey Ferguson today.
