  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1513
  • Death: 1550 in Eilean Donan Castle
  • Cause: Poisoned or starved to death
  • Note:

    Married Agnes, the only child and heiress of James Fraser of Foyness [third son of Thomas, 2nd Lord and brother of Hugh, 3rd Lord Lovat]. Through this marriage, John Glassich Mackenzie acquired considerable wealth and power. By Agnes Fraser of Foyness, he had three sons and a daughter. He also had two illegitimate sons before his marriage.
    However, John Glassich was not an exemplary husband, nor was he a very dutiful subject to his King, and in 1547 his estates were forfeited for refusing to join the Royal Standard.
    He was poisoned or starved to death at Eilean Donan Castle in 1550. In 1551 the Queen granted to John Mackenzie, 9th of Kintail, and his son and heir Kenneth, a remission for the violent taking of John Glassich, Dougal, and John Tuach, his brothers, and for keeping them in prison, thus usurping ?therethrough our Sovereign Lady?s authority?.
