We search information
about the following persons or families:
The ancestors of merchant William
Allan (d. 1777), Molde, Norway. Contact: Steinar Winnem / Carsten
The ancestors of Jacob
Burchardfrom Vegan at Lofoten, Norway. He was born 1828 at Lødingen,
Nordland, Norway, and was married to Bolette Nilsdatter from Evenes,
Nordland, Norway, born 1830. Contact: Steinar Winnem
The ancestors of the Norwegian lieutenant colonel Ahasverus de Crequi de/dit
la Roche of Dutch origin, and his father Jean de Crequi de/dit la Roche,
a captain in Holland. We miss the actual link from this Dutch/Norwegian
part of the family to the the high noble family de Crequifrom
Crequy, Pas-de-Calais, France. This family can be traced back one thousand
years. Some previous generations to Jean de Crequi are hinted in
the sources, but not confirmed. Ahasverus de Crequi carried the de Crequi
family's coat of arms, the seven branched plum tree.
The late marquis Boris des Aubrys, Paris, who in 1981 read through the
five volumes of the de Créqui family saga for me, confirmed that
Jean and Ahasverus de Créqui are indeed genuine de Créquis,
and hinted that they may have been Huguenot refugees who fled to a safer
life in Amsterdam and later - in Ahasverus' case - in Norway. See also

The ancestors of marshal Torsten
Iversen , Flakstad, Lofoten. Born
outside Flakstad, probably drowned on duty in 1818. Married to Ingeborg
Severine Sandberg, f. 1777, d. 22 Feb 1848, Ramberg, Lofoten.
Et søk på Folketellingen
1801 (Digitalarkivet) gjort 15. juni 2000 viser at det nord for Trondheim
bare finnes én Torsten (Tosten) Iversen, 26 år og bosatt
i Hassel prestegjeld i Nordland. Han står oppført som "mandens
broder". "Manden" på gården Lechang Nedre
heter Lars Tostensen (46 år), gift med Berthe Jonsdatter (30 år),
begge gift 1. gang. De har med andre ord ikke like patronymika, de to
brødrene. Tosten Iversen er ugift i 1801, og står ikke
oppført med noen stilling på gården.
I tillegg finner vi i 1801
en Torsten Iversen-Fjersløv på gården Haug i Steigen
prestegjeld, 37 år, gift med Ingeborg Isachsdatter og med to små
barn fire og to år, samt to litt eldre fosterbarn. Her er Fjersløv-navnet
knyttet til Iversen, og han er en lite sannsynlig kandidat til å
være lensmann Torsten Iversen i 1818.
Tosten Iversen i Hassel er
dog en nærmere undersøkelse verdt.
Torsten Iversen is of special
interest to me, as he represents the first known agnatic ancestor on
my father's side. As he was a marshal (Norwegian: lensmann) ,
it should not be impossible to trace him, but so far I have had no luck.
See the above, though, about a Torsten (Tosten) Iversen in Hassel, 26
years old in 1801. He may seem to be a good candidate, but further investigations
Olderøy The ancestors of Jøa
Povelsdatter , (b. ca 1762), possibly
the mother of Lars Halvorsen Olderøy b ca 1795 at Sunndalen,
Norway.Contact: Carsten Berg Høgenhoff

la Roché The Roché family and its connection with the de Crequi- and
other families connected with it, as shown by Delgobes and Kielland in
the 19th century. These 16th and 17th century family connections are
uncertain and with little evidence apart from some old shields and coats of arms (from
Delgobes), but any hint would be valuable. Other names are Delordelie,
de Leys, Rengers, Voorthuysen, Hanegreuen and Olderingk.
The spelling of these names may differ in the sources. See the above
de Crequi family for further details. See also de Crequi. Contact:

Sommer The ancestors of Jens
Peter Sommer of Nes parish, Romerike,
Norway. He was born approx. 1803, supposedly in Denmark, and married
to Inger Larsdatter Aas, daughter of Lars Olsen Aas and Marthe Amundsdatter,
both from Sør-Odal community, Norway.
According to Grete Sommer ,
rumours say that the Sommer family of Nes at Ringerike origins from
Schleswig in Germany. This may show be true, as Sommer is indeed not
a very common name in Norway .Contact:

from Tomtegata/Tomtegade in Oslo Lauritz Ditlof Sommer
ran a small hotel or inn at Tomtegade (Tomtegata)
in Oslo in 1875. This street, which was close to the main railway station
in Oslo, disappeared in the 1960'ies when the whole area was renovated.
I search photographs from Tomtegata, preferably from before 1900, but
also later. In particular, I am interested in Tomtegata 11 where the
hotel was located, but the street in general is also of great interest.Contact: Carsten Berg Høgenhoff
Wiingaard The ancestors of the vicar at Bolsø Hans Wiingaard.
(The family name may at places be written Wingaard or Wungard).
