The architect was James Torrance of Stranraer. The house was built as the Free Church Manse. It was later known as Wilson Memorial Manse; the Free Church was known as the Wilson Memorial United Free Church after 1900, in memory of Rev George Wilson, minister of the Free Church from 1848 to 1898. The house is now called Ladyburn Manse. Ladyburn Manse is the manse of the parish, and has been since the original manse, Abbey House (see separate listing) was sold in 1963.
