Could it be number 6 on this one conformation attached. Carl Johan ( Pettersen/Pedersen??) Born 1828 in Arendal, Norway.

 

That one is actually a Carl Johan Paulsen - Carl Johan, son of Knud Paulsen/Poulsen. Haven't looked at him yet (first wanted to get all of the Carl Pedersens out of the way).

Hi Carl-Henry Geschwind. Can I help you search for Charles Peterson? If so, what website do I need to go to? Thx. Mark Peterson

We think this is Charles and Ellen Peterson onboard the ship named, Gertrude, leaving from New York ( Maybe in November 1855 ) and arriving in Melbourne, Australia on the 24th January 1856. So it looks like Ellen was 17, born in about 1838 and Charles was 23, born in about 1833, but children’s birth certificates in Australia, have their ages all over the place, especially for Charles. Thx Mark 

Peterson.

We are here Mark, however we do have other chores to attend to and also trying to help others.

 

It's time consuming to look through every possible candidate in order to find a possible match for your Charles Peterson. It's a needle in a haystack. As said before it is not established as a reliable fact that Charles Peterson was born in 1827-1834 in the Arendal area. Both year of birth and place of birth are uncertain. Arendal could also refer to other places than the city of Arendal. 

 

It's going to be hard to find any evidence in Norwegian archives. I'm not saying it can't be found, however I suggest you try look for a naturalization record for Charles Peterson in Australia (at least find out if it exists). Such recording could hold information more specific on his date of birth and birth place.
