Enzie  Banffshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Enzie like this:

Enzie, a hamlet, a quoad sacra parish, and a district in the NW of Banffshire. The hamlet lies 3¼ miles ENE of Fochabers, under which it has a post office. The quoad sacra parish, containing also the village of Port Gordon, comprises the eastern part of Bellie parish and the western part of Rathven. ...

It is in the presbytery of Fordyce and synod of Aberdeen; the minister's stipend is £120. The parochial church was built in 1785, and, as enlarged in 1815 and 1822, contains 400 sittings. There is also a Free church; and two public schools, Enzie and Port Gordon, with respective accommodation for 170 and 236 children, had (1880) an average attendance of 112 and 171, and grants of £100, 17s. and £1154 2s. The district extends from the river Spey to Buckie Burn, but is popularly regarded as comprising all Bellie and Rathven parishes. Pop. of quoad sacra parish (1871) 2251, (1881) 2413.—Ord.
