The essential details that I have are that George Shearer - a "sailor" - was born 18 Sep 1797 in Stronsay & died 19 Feb 1865 in Whitehall village, Stronsay. He married Helen Miller (c1798 - 19 Sep 1874, buried St Peters Churchyard, Stronsay) - marriage 15 Nov 1820, Stronsay.

Their known children - all born in Stronsay - were Peter Miller Shearer (b 1822); George Shearer (b 1827); James Shearer (b 1829); Isabella Shearer (b 1837); and John Shearer (b 30 Mar 1845)

I do not have very much more as yet concerning further descendants from this line, but am currently awaiting information from 2 established descendants in England and New Zealand - and would be delighted to discover more!

However I do know that George Shearer had 2 older brothers - John Shearer (b 1787) who moved to Eday, in Orkney, and Peter Shearer (1792 - 1835), and that their parents were Peter Shearer & Margaret Laughton in Stronsay.

I have loads of descendants from these 2 older brothers (Peter Shearer b 1792 is my direct ancestor) and have been building my Online Tree at United Kingdom based www.genesreunited.com - which is open to searches - but I believe you have to join (for a modest annual fee) before you can ask me to "Open My Tree" for further inspection - and enabling the exchange of email addresses for 1 to 1 interchange.
