Thanks for PM, Liz.

I think Mrs Fergusson was actually James's mother in law:

Marriage December quarter 1857
Medway 2a 522
James Winfield - Elizabeth Fergusson

This looks like James in 1841:
HO107/487/6 36 20
Chatham, Kent

John Winfield, 32, Sawyer
Louisa, 32
William, 13, Labourer
John, 11
Henry, 9
Richard, 7
James, 5
Eliza, 1

All born in county.
