Christina (1825-1901) was the daughter of Norman Macdonald and Ann Campbell; the family are thought to have been living in Old South Tolsta Tack at the time of her birth.
In 1830, after the crofts were lotted, the family were probably living with Christina's maternal grandparents at 18 Old South Tolsta or as cottars in Old South Tolsta.
Christina married John Nicolson, of 16 Old South Tolsta, and they had their first three children between 1847 and 1851. It is not known where the family were living during this time.
In 1851, during the crofts relottings, the family obtained 3 North Tolsta and had a further six children there. In total they had nine children: seven boys and two girls.
In 1855 3a North Tolsta was added to 3 North Tolsta, after the previous occupant emigrated.
In due course 3 North Tolsta passed to her eldest son: Murdo.
