Does anybody know where on westray this was? [It's Netherhouse on the Westside is it not?- Steven]
Added by Sandy Drever on 27 January 2010
If it is Netherhouse, the 1861 census shows my gg grandfather, Andrew Drever as living there with his wife Merjary. Just got into the genealogy thing in the last year or two, it is rather interesting.

Yes! Netherhouse without any doubt. The home of some of my ancestors.

Would this be next door to Cotohuan? My great, great grandparents lived here I believe, James Drever and Catherine Paterson
