Statement of Interest

No 42 South Street was the home of Dr Smith who left it,

together with other property in South Street (formerly South

Lane), to the Free Church of Scotland in Fochabers in 1897.

The house is next door to the former Free Church, and his

intention was that it should serve as manse. However, the

decision to re-build the Free Church (the Pringle Church) at

the E end of High Street in 1900, conveniently sited close to

the manse (now The White House) nullified this and the house

was sold round 1900.
