John Macbeth

Macbeth, John, Lieutenant-Colonel, London, Ont., was born in 1836, in the Red River Settlement, North-West territory. He is a son of George and Catherine (Sutherland) Macbeth, both of whom were natives of Kildonan, Sutherlandshire, Scotland, and who were among the early pioneers of the Selkirk settlement. John Macbeth studies for the legal profession in the office of the late H. C. R. Becher, Q.C., London, and was called to the bar in 1859. He joined the first volunteers in 1854, and maintained his connection with the same, save for a slight interval, until 1878, when he resigned, retaining his rank. He was appointed deputy-clerk of the Crown and registrar of the Surrogate Court for Middlesex in 1860, which office he still holds.
