Tanberg in Buskerud County

Recommended Posts

In America, the family Christian Johansen used the surname Tanberg.  They came from Norderhov in Buskerud.  Might they have taken

the name Tanberg as it was a larger farm as my family did?  I'd like to know if Tanberg is an area in addition to being a farm. I do not see the family on any Tanberg farms on the 1865 census.   Thank you.

The reason why you don't find any Tanberg farms in Norderhov is that the the spelling of the farm name has been changed. In 1865 (and now) the most common spelling of the name is Tandberg.

From a former post, Christian Johansen in 1865 was working at the Qvaernebergsandsødegaard - gaard meaning farm.  Does this tell us

that Tandberg was nearby?

The direct line between the two farms is about two miles. Tandberg is outside the city of Hønefoss (south-east) while Qvaernebergsandsødegaard is within the City (and a little south-west of the railway station). To get from one of the farms to the other, you have to cross the river.

 

According to the "matrikkel" from 1886, the Tan(d)berg farm was farm number 38, the other one was number 45.  A map of Ringerike kommune is available at http://kart.ringerike.kommune.no/Content/Main.asp
