John (1890-1947) was the son of Malcolm Macleod and Mary Maciver; the family were cottars at 11 North Tolsta.

John emigrated and settled in the Rockies. When World War One broke out he returned to Britain and enlisted with the Royal Naval Reserves. He took part in the Zeebrugge Raid of 1918.

John married Kenina Maciver, of 18 North Tolsta, but it is not known where the couple initially settled or where their first child was born.

In 1922 the family obtained 17 New Tolsta as a newly lotted croft. The couple had a further two children there: one boy and one girl. In due course 17 New Tolsta passed to his youngest son: Donald Malcolm.
