John was a Presbyterian minister of Tain, in the Scottish Highlands. As a Presbyterian, he resisted the efforts of King James VI of Scotland, later James I of England to unite the Presbyterian Church of Scotland with the Episcopalian Church of England. As a result he was persecuted for many years. He was the third son of Hugh Munro, 1st of Assynt, and grandson of Robert Munro, 14th Baron of Foulis. His mother was Christina, a daughter of Robert Munro of Carbisdale. He was educated for the ministry at St Andrews University, in Fife, graduating as MA in 1590. He married Euphemia, a daughter of Andrew Munro, 5th of Milntown, a cousin of her husband. They had no children. A brother of John was the Reverend Robert Munro, minister of Creich from 1609 to around 1640.
