maler løber

Recommended Posts

Marilyn Veek

I am researching Norwegian ancestors for a friend. In the 1801 census, the occupation of an ancestor is listed as "maler løber". Apparently this is some kind of painter, but the translations I find online for løber are confusing, and I would appreciate further information from members of this forum.

 

Thanks very much,

Marilyn Veek

This person? http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/ft/person/pf01058274004622

It does not make sense to me either...

One could perhaps compare to the original enumeration list in 1801 that starts here: http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:db_read/ft/58274

 

Kildeinformasjon: Buskerud fylke, Modum prestegjeld, Statlig folketelling 20 (RA/EA-4070/J/Jd/L0020), 1801-1801, oppb: Riksarkivet.

Kan det stå Malm - løber? (Malm = Ore - product in mining)

Nymoen in Modum was the workmen's housing for the Cobolt mines in Modum, where cobolt was excavated and refined for producing blue color used for instance in the glass and porcelain industries all over Europe.

 

"Maler løber" might translate to "Grinder runner" or a person who worked at the grinding mill where stone from the mines were grinded in the refining process that resulted in fine cobalt powder.

 

The cobalt mines and works are now a museum area:

Thanks very much for your responses. I am surprised to get several answers so quickly. Yes, my friend's ancestor is the person Anne-Lise Hansen identified, so he must be the only person in Norway with that occupation listed in the 1801 census?  And thank you, Jorunn Stenberg, for the added information about Nymoen and the mining operations there. Perhaps some day my friend will be able to visit the museum.

 

Thank you,

Marilyn
