Murdo Campbell

Murdo Campbell

Murdo (born 1829) was the son of Murdo Campbell and Catherine Macdonald, of Old South Tolsta Tack. In 1830, during the croft lottings, the family obtained 4 Old South Tolsta. In 1842 the family moved to 9 Old South Tolsta. In 1851, in the croft relottings, the family obtained 24 North Tolsta. However, it is not certain Murdo was still living in the family home at this point.

Murdo married Ann Mackenzie, of 48 North Tolsta, it is not known where they lived after they married: though it is likely they lived with one or other set of parents.

In 1853 the entire family, except for Malcolm's youngest brother Angus and half brother Allan, emigrated to Canada.
