[#71000] Synneve Nielsdatter Roysum of Leikanger

Recommended Posts

Guest Richard R. Einerson

Does anyone have information on this person? The earliest record I can find is a confirmation in Leikanger: XIX Past Trinity 1768, Syneve Nielsd. Skeldestad pa(?) Roysum, age 16 years old.' This would place her birth around 1752. Later, a Synneve Nielsd. Roysum married Ole Lassesen Njos on 9 June 1772. He later died and was recorded in the Parish record as living on Henjesanden and being buried on 21 July 1776. Synneve remarried to Bottel Larsen Djupevik on 27 Dec 1776. Synneve's residence is listed as Henjesanden. Bottel & Synneve had four children: Ole, Agaathe, Agaathe #2, and Lars. On the 1801 census, they appear living on the Borloug farm in Leikanger, with Synneve's age listed as 56 years (B. 1745). In 1809, a widow by the name Syneve Nielsd. Hellebø was buried on 26 December, aged 68 (B. 1741), in Hoyanger Parish.I would like to locate ths person's baptism and/or find the names of her parents for further research.Kind regards,Richard

It dosent seem like she is borned either in Leikanger or Sogndal (Skjeldestad is a farm in Sogndal). I have found a candidate in Vik Parish, which is located at the south of the Sognefjord. This does not say who her mother is, but her father is Niels Johansson paa (of) Wiggøren.

She is baptismed 17. feb. 1753 (right side).Unfortunately there seems to be several Niels Johansson in Vik, so I am not shore which of theme who is her father. One candidate could be this one, marrid just some months before Synneve in Vik was borned. Permanent sidelenke: Lenke Permanent bildelenke:

Hello,Synneva was born in 1759 in Leikanger.Her father was Ola Larsson Marifjora of Lyster.And her mother was Gitlaug Bardsdatter Henjesand Henjum.Synneva died in 1825.There isnt anything about her children or husbands listed.But I could look for it later if you like. Lisbeth;)

Do you belive that she maybe had Olsdatter as her name and not Nielsdatter.All information I find is about Synneva Olsdatter Roysum.And I also found her baptisme.In the churchbook for Leikanger there are many children from the same family.Henjum as I belive is her mothers name seem to be a name that are mention many times in the churchbook.Well thats what I find.But I cant find any Nielsdatter Roysum.Only Olsdatter Roysum.Strange isnt it?

Dear Egil & Lisbeth, Thanks so much for your responses. Regarding the Synneve Nielsdatter Vigoren born in 1753, I believe this would be a perfect match, but I discovered that this girl may have died as a child in 1758: '24 Dec 1758 Buried, Syneve Nielsdatter Wugoren, aged 5.5 years (Vik Parish Register).' Perhaps my Syneve's baptism was never entered (i.e. forgotten)? I recall seeing a Synneve baptized in 1759, however, this would only make her 13 years old for her first marriage to Ole Lassesen.
