NOTES: B-Group with No 13 Manse Street. The land which Manse Street and the surrounding area is built upon was acquired by the 11th Earl of Morton in 1725. It was laid out in the late 18th and throughout the 19th centuries. It was known for a time as New Town. These houses including the adjacent No 13 (see separate listing) with their simple form and low roofline remain fairly unaltered and are examples of the type of houses that were built early on in the development of this area. Later in the 19th century larger and grander houses were built in the neighbouring streets running SE down to the shore.
