How do you know that’s her mother? Couldn’t it be this woman?

The surname Ferguson is usually Scottish

I originally wrote “distant Northern Irish”, since Rebecca’s mother is said to be related to Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York (whose Ferguson-line originates in Northern Ireland), but it was removed for some reason.

yes, Sarah’s Ferguson patrilineal line traces back to Northern Ireland. Is there any reliable source about a relation between Rebecca’s mother and Sarah Ferguson?

I was going to write, how do you know that Rebecca Ferguson is related to Sarah Ferguson? She appears to deny it here.

I wrote “possibly other” because of the likely Scottish or Northern Irish origin.

Rebecca herself said it, although it was in 1999, so her information might be updated in your article from 2015.

“There is still a whole lot of relative in England, and one of them is none other than Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, or “Fergie” as she is called.
-We are related, but very distantly, so I have never met her, Rebecca says”
