There are a few possible 1841/1851 Census for Roderick.

I would search Scotlandspeople for his Marriage/Death Cert which should have all the info you require
(it is very inexpensive)

Marriage details;
Roderick Finlayson
Christy Nicolson
04 Jun 1857
Portree, Inverness, Scotland

This may be him in 1841 in Lochalsh;
Rook Finlayson, 45, Ag Lab
Moriah Finlayson, 45
Donald Finlayson, 20
Anne Finlayson, 20
Mary Finlayson, 15
Duncan Finlayson, 15
William Finlayson, 12
ROOK Finlayson, 8
Floral Finlayson, 5
Mary Murchison, 35

Rook has probably been mistranscribed and is Rodk.

Trish :)
