Found adjacent to the site of the old Bonnybridge Silica and Fireclay Company, Bonnybridge.

Unfortunately, the brick is broken but it would definitely have been stamped Ganister.

Note the very large thumbprint to the top right.

The manufacturer is unknown.

The find location would suggest Scottish origins but …

Several brick manufacturers in the Bonnybridge area worked the ganister clays however as this looks a very early brick there may be a chance that this is a product of the Drum Fireclay Works, Bonnybridge which was the first Bonnybridge company to work the ganister clay there.
