John died in the Crail Fishing Disaster which occurred at the mouth of the Crail Harbour on 21 January 1765. Other details of his life are unknown, but he was unmarried and the only dependents were 2 sisters, aged 48 & 57 at the date of his drowning.

We can surmise that he was in the 45-65 age group.
