Not 100% sure in 1841 Andrew's age seems mighty rounded down - but it could happen.

North Yell, Shetland
ED 1 P 8

Brakon

Catherine Moar   52 Y
Catherine Moar   24 Y
James Moar         22 Y
Alexander Moar   20 Y
Andrew Moar       15 Y
Johannah Moar    13 Y
Wilhelmina Moar  11 Y
Margaret Moar      8  Y


Can't find any other family that could fit? It's not yours directly as Andrew is living with Catherine jnr in 1851.  I'll leave them crossed out as they may fit on a collateral line.

I found this christening, not sure if it might help in census records?

  • ANDREW MOAR
    Christening: 09 MAY 1819 Fetlar, Shetland, Scotland
    Parents: JAMES MOAR & MARGT. SPENCE

Someone's submitted also:

  • ANDREW MOAR:
    Christening: 09 MAY 1819 North Yell, Shetland, Scotland
    Parents: JAMES MOAR & MARGT. SPENCE

Just going by the 1851 birthplaces.  :)

Hmmm - just saw your post hume - I've scored out the Andrew snr & CAtherine entries as I don't think they are our Andrew's parents-- but if itturns out they are connected then Andrew died post 1861.

Other Moar data here...
