Murdo (1801-1873) was the son of Donald Mackenzie and Catherine Macdonald, Lionel.
Murdo married Isabella Macleod, of Old South Tolsta Tack. It is not certain where the couple spent their early marriage. It is possible they were staying with parents either in Lionel or Old South Tolsta Tack.
In 1830 Isabella's father obtained 28 Old South Tolsta, in the croft lottings, and sometime later this passed to Murdo. It remained his until the 1851 croft relottings. Therefore it is not clear where any of the couple's seven children were born.
In 1851, during the croft relottings, the family obtained 39 North Tolsta.
In due course 39 North Tolsta passed to their son-in-law: Murdo Murray.
