Formerly listed as '5 and 7 Evan Street'. Evan Street forms part of the grid-iron plan for Robert Barclay of Ury's 'New Town' where building commenced in 1797 on lands of the Arduthie Estate, purchased by his father in 1759. Feu purchasers were awarded privileges which included 'the right to quarry stones from the Brachans, the ridge of rocks projecting into the bay, peat from the moss and clay from the Milldens of Cowie' (Christie p15). The first house, built on the north bank of the Carron, but now demolished, was soon followed by those facing Market (formerly Barclay) Square and the main streets.
