The Ferguson Gang


‘Bill Stickers’, ‘Sister Agatha’, ‘Red Biddy/ White Biddy’ and ‘Kate O’Brien the Nark’ were pseudonyms used by a group of young women who came together to form what was known as ‘Ferguson’s Gang’ in 1927. Some of the group were lesbians or bisexual. They were activists protecting rural England who objected to the spread of urbanisation. They made a number of generous donations to the National Trust, including Newtown Old Town Hall on the Isle of Wight.
