Mary Maciver

Mary Maciver

Mary (1840-1932) was the daughter of Angus Maciver and Mary Macdonald, it is not certain where the family were living at the time of her birth, but it seems likely they were cottars at 19 Old South Tolsta.

In 1847, when her uncle died and her aunt returned to Garrabost, his father inherited 19 Old South Tolsta. 

In 1851, during the croft relottings, the family obtained 28 North Tolsta.

Mary married Kenneth Macleod, of 30 Coll, and the couple settled at 30 Coll and had eight children: all daughters. At least four of their daughters died in childhood.
