Re: old house sinking
Since the building had been settling for 150 years then was raised , moved to a new location , set down onto a new foundation --- there certainly would be considerable structural movement and cracks.

Are there any noticeable cracks in the foundation which usually indicates movement?
If you don't feel things are correct I would suggest enlisting the services of a structural engineer to evaluate the situation first hand. It may simply be the building has to conform to it's new condition after 150+ years.
Having an independant professional evalute the situation should at least give you peace of mind as to what the situation is.
