niðursetningur - what does it mean? - Johan Sigmundsson 19Feb1864

Classification: Query
Hello! I am trying to confirm if I have identified my great grandfather, Jóhann Sigmundsson, Born 19 Feb 1864, on the following 1870 census (National Archives-online). His father died in 1865.
I am unable to translate what "niðursetningur" means. Please help.
Thank you!
