John (c1803-1888) was a son of John Matheson and Catherine Mackay from Reef. He was married to Catherine Mackay, 4 Old Brenish and they lived at Reef. They had three children. This is possibly the same John who was enumerated with Norman (brother) in Reef 1841.
John obtained tenancy of 4 Brenish from his sister-in-law, Ann and relocated there, possibly after the premature death of his wife.
In the 1871 Census, John is living, as a widower, at 4 Brenish with his son Angus.
