John, who has been stated to be the son of the Sir Michael who succeeded in 1332, but Crawfurd makes him the brother of that Sir Michael and son of the last Sir David, which is more in harmony with facts.

He received from King Robert a charter of one-third of the barony of Leuchars, and from Sir Alexander Abernethy the lands of Kincaidrum in Forfarshire.

He appears to have received the rank of knighthood, but the family writs are so few at that date that little is known of him, and there is

John, afterwards Sir John Wemyss of Leuchars, Kincaldrum, and Reres, who carried on the line of the family.
