John Brooke was Meg March's husband and the father of Daisy, Demi and Josie.


He was first introduced as a young, learned tutor who taught the mischievous Theodore Laurence, next door to the Marches. John fell in love with the eldest March girl, Meg and married her after the war- after much “begging” and convincing he’d be a good husband to her. The couple moved into a little house, where their three children were born: the twins Daisy and Demi and later Josie. He died in the book Little Men. He was mentioned once in Jo’s boys.


John was a quiet and sensible man with a kind heart.
