    • He was educated at the University of Edinburgh and New College, Edinburgh and was ordained at Dalkeith in 1869. For most of his life he was minister of St Leonards Free Church of Scotland, Perth where he died and where he is buried.

      During the period 1884-1894 Dr Bannerman presented to the Library of New College, Edinburgh about one-third of Adam Smith's personal library. This included a first edition of "An Inquiry into the Principles of Political OEconomy", by Sir James Steuart Denham of Coltness (2 volumes, London, 1767) whose manuscripts, including that of the Inquiry, were gifted to the University Library in 1988 by Mrs Katherine Fyfe, whose ancestors had inherited them on the death in 1839 of Lieutenant-General Sir James Steuart Denham of Coltness and Westshields .
