The Provost of Ceres
The Provost of Ceres
The Rev. Thomas Buchanan, Minister of Ceres 1578-99, was the last Provost of Ceres. The Toby jug figure was the work of local stonemason John Howie [1820-], and is reputed to be a likeness of the Rev. Buchanan; Howie also carved the surround and niche, and the panel below, depicting a scene from the Battle of Bannockburn. It was originally placed in the garden of the manse at Kirklands in 1837, and remained there undisturbed until 1933, when it was sold by Mr Ogilvie, postmaster and then owner of Kirklands, to Mrs Lindsay of Cupar. The loss of the figure upset the people of Ceres and it was bought back and placed in a central position in the village LinkExternal link.
