[#2397] From Siul to Siver

Recommended Posts

Gjest VF Larsen

In tracing my ancestor, I have come up against a block at Tollev Sivertsen Solberg, who married in Larvik in Vestfold in 1811. According to information recorded at his burial he was born around 1783. Despite extensive search in the 1801 census, I have found no matching Tolv/Tollev/Tollef Siversen/Sivertsen/Syvertsen on or off any farm Solberg.The name Solberg must have meant something to him as he used it with Sivertsen through his life and indeed his son adopted this as his sole surname, despite both of them apparently living in the town of Larvik for all or most of their lives.I have however come across a near perfect match with one Tollev Siulsen and his presumed father Siul Tollevsen who was a farmer on Solberg farm in Lardal, Vestfold.Is such a change in spelling likely, or have I found two different people?

Norwegian names have been spelled in a lot of different ways. I have seen 22 different ways of spelling the name Agate.Sjur and Sivert and Syvert and Sjul and Siul could very well be the same person, so Tollev Siulsen could indeed be the Tollef/Tolf Sivertsen you are looking for.
