Could you provide us with the full sentence...? 'Vaebner' is a danish word, so maybe you should try a danish board. Nowadays, I've seen it used as a boy scout or something, but I'm not sure of the meaning in earlier years. It's some kind of profession I guess, maybe in the army...? :-)Jan

According to my dictionary, the norwegian word 'væpner' (to-day spelled with p, not b)means 'esquire'. Else B.

Dear Mrs. Knight,The meaning of the word is so close to your own surname as you possibly can expect anything to be in Norwegian genealogy.

Eindride (Endre) Eiriksson at Bjølstad was never 'væpner'. His occupation was farmer.
