The earliest known owner of the Manor Garage, Manor House and the land that St Ninian's stands on is believed to have been Richard Baldwin, who died in 1725. In 1909 the complex was owned by a G.S. Hotback and then later sold that year for £175 to Dr. McKelvie to build St Ninians. In 1967 Mr Harrison bought St Ninians from the owner of Norvic Shoe Company.
