Solberg – family
from Svarstad – Lardal
Martin and Olava Solberg
and their descendents
On these pages we present the story of a large family originating from several farms in Lardal, mainly
Solberg. We start out with Martin Christiansen Solberg and his wife Elen Olava Torstensdatter from
Gåserud. They bought the farm Solberg in 1890. The family name Solberg is taken from that farm.
Before we start on a more systematic description of the descendants of Martin and Olava Solberg,
we shall mention some of their ancestors. It appears that they all come from farms in Svarstad,
Lardal. Thus, Martins ancestors come from the small farms Hellingsrud, Torsås and Skau – whereas Olava ancestors can be found on other Lardal farms such as Gåsreud, Hannevold, Solberg,
Bjertnes and others.
For all the descendant`s of Martin and Elen Olava we use a coding system in order to identify the
particular family member and make it easy to see the relation to other members in the family. This
coding system will be explained.
The farm Solberg, which has given the family name Solberg is situated about 1 – 2 km west of the
church in Svarstad. The farm is located between the church and the new alpine skiing center. The
family owned this farm from 1890 to 1918.
One of those responsible for these pages (Thormod Henriksen) is not directly in the family. However,
I am married to one of the great grandchildren of Martin and Olava. I have got lots of information
and help from Martin Solberg, the grandson of the couple. Furthermore, we have used all available
resources such as the digitized church books – the census from 1865 and 1900 as well as “Lardal
bygdebok” – a book from 1973 about the farms in Lardal Kommune. Most information is, however,
obtained from the different family members.
The Norwegian names are not translated.
We would appreciate information and new knowledge and pictures of the family.
Information can be sent to us via mail or you can use ordinary “snail mail”.

The farms, the area, the ancestors
The present family research include about 14 generations from 1614, a span in time of almost 400
hundred years. We shall briefly mention some of the ancestors to Martin and Olava Solberg and the
farms in Svarstad where they lived. They are baptized in Svarstad church. Both the church and the
farms for Martins ancestors are marked in the map and the air photo below.

The name Solberg and the ancestors
In the period we are looking into, about 200 – 400 years ago significant information are kept in the
church book. All newborn were baptized and given a name which can be found in the church books.
In these books you can find the birthday as well as the day they were baptized. Furthermore, you
can find the place where they were born – no hospitals at that time.
The family name was rather easy: A boy was given the fathers name with the ending “sen”. Thus
Martins name was Martin Christiansen since his fathers name was Christian.
A girl was also given the fathers name with the ending “datter”. Elen Olavas name was therefore
Torstensdatter since her fathers name was Torsten or Torstein.
Almost all families used in addition to this straight forward family name, the name of the place where
they lived. Therefore all the farm names come to use. If you lived on one place all your life your
family name would be the same. However, it happened quite often that you moved and therefore
changed the family name according to this. Our Martin Solberg was also connected to the name
Skau since he owned this farm before he bought Solberg.
Now we should be prepared to Present the main couple Martin and Olava Solberg.
Elen Olava Torstensdatter (1861 – 1941). Martin Christiansen Solberg (1854 –
She is born June 7. (probably in Larvik) and baptized in Larvik September 20. She is the daughter
of Torsten Eriksen Hannevold and Gunild Marie
Olsdatter Smukkestad. She had her childhood at
Gåserud. She married Martin Solberg 21. October 1881. She was 20 and Martin was 27. Below
you can read directly in the scanned church book
from this wedding.
1939). He is born on the farm Skau, March 18 and
baptized in Svarstad church April 13 1854. He is
the son of Christian Andreasen Torsås and Helvig
Arnesdatter Bergan (Styrvold). He married Elen
Olava Torstensdatter from Gåserud. They took
over Skau, bruk 3 in 1884. In 1890 they bought
Nedre Solberg. They kept the farm until 1915
when the son in law, Ottar Hvaal, took over. They
then moved to Hvittingfoss.
Martins ancestors and the way to Solberg
We shall try to mention some of the ancestors – however, not all of them. First we would like to give
the names and the families that made a line from the farms Hellingsrud, Torsås and Skau to Solberg.
We start with the 7. Generation up the family tree – namely Dyre Olsen born about 1614.
7. Generation back: Dyre Olsen Linnesholm (born about 1614). He was from the farm Linnesholm
(Lindsholm) in Hem. We know very little about him, but he had a son with the name Nils.
6. Generation back: Nils Dyresen Linnesholm (1634 – 1717). He married Signe Tollefsdatter
(1632 – 1718) from Hellingsrud. It appears that they took over the farm Hellingsrud which is approximately 6 km (as the birds fly) west of Svarstad (see map above) and near the farm Torsås. Nils
served on the jury (lagrettemann) from 1691 to 1702. Nils was “bruker” (or the farmer) of Hellingsrud
– whether he was the owner is unclear. Today Hellingsrud belong to the Threschow estate.
Nils and Signe had 2 boys; Jørgen (1673) and Bjørn (1675).
5. Generation back: Jørgen Nilsen Hellingsrud (1673 – 1763). Jørgen was born on Hellingsrud
and he died on Torsås – 90 years later. He married Kirsti Kjeldsdatter (1676 – 1759) from Torsås.
The farm Torsås is probably from the Viking time and the name changed several times; Toosaas
(1547), Thoeszaas (1668) and Tosaas. Part of the farm was owned by Svarstad church. Jørgen
bought the farm or part of it in 1719.
Jørgen and Kirsti got 4 children; Signe (1704), Kjeld (1709), Maren (1714) and Anne (1719). All
children are born on Hellingsrud before they moved to Torsås.
Jørgen and Kirsti are the great-great-great grandparents (in Norwegian tipp-tipp oldeforeldre) of
Martin Solberg.
4. Generation back: Kjeld Jørgensen Torsås (1709 – 1781). Kjeld was the one that “took over”
Torsås in 1740.
He married Anne Christoffersdatter Styrmo (1719 – 1770). They got altogether 11 children – all
born on Torsås. The children are; Kirsti (1740), Ole (1742 – 1748), Marie (1745), Anne (1747), Olea
(1748), Jørgen (1749), Christoffer (1752), Nils (1754), Ingeborg (1758) and Anders (1761).
From here on we follow Jørgen into the family tree for Martin Solberg.
The farms Hellingsrud and Torsås are important in this family story. Hellingsrud is a small farm
into the forest west of Torsås, whereas Torsås is a small farm with a wonderful surrounding. Today
the farm is splitted up and we have the farms; Torås, Toråshaugen and Ås. In this area we find a
cross country skiing arena with a lighted trail.
As you can see above Torsås came into the family in 1719 with Jørgen Nilsen and Kirsti Kjeldsdatter.
On the next page you can see a couple of pictures from Torsås.

The cross country skiing area is located close
to Torsåshaugen.

From Skau to Solberg and Hvittingfoss
Skau 2013
Martin Solberg started his life on Skau
which was his home for 36 years until they
moved to Solberg. Elen Olava spent her
childhood at Gåserud. It is unclear when
she came to Skau, but she lived there
at least from her marriage with Martin in
1881 until 1890.
Martin was 36 and Olava 29 when they
moved to Solberg. The family that moved
included the children Kristian, Hanna,
Teoline and Magna + Martins parents
Christian Andreassen Torsås and Helvig
This large family increased the following
years with the children Andreas (1890 –
1891), Tora (1892), and then the next
Andreas ( 1995), Arne (1897), Ottar (1900) and finally Einar (1902). Thus, in the beginning of 1900
it was all together 13 people of the Solberg-family that lived on Solberg.
In 1913 Martin and Olava moved to Hvittingfoss together with the boys Einar, Ottar, Arne and Andreas.
They had the farm Solberg until 1915. In Hvittingfoss Martin was “vognmann”. That is transport with
horse. In 1917 he bought the forest “Fossmoen” (called Løkka). This property was 65 dekar + a smaller
farmland of 5 dekar near Gulliveien (about 1 km from the center of Hvittingfoss). This property is still
owned by the family and today by MS 7.1 Martin Jørgen Solberg.
When Elen Olava died in 1941 the property in Hvittingfoss was transferred to their son MS 7 Andreas
Solberg – 1899. In this picture from the farm Solberg we have Martin and Olava with 7 children and
also Martins parents. Thus, we see from left; Andreas (MS 7), the father Christian Andreassen,
Magna (MS 4), then the mother Helvig Arnesdatter, behind is Hanna (MS 2), then followsTeoline (MS
3), Martin and Elen Olava with Arne (MS 8), then Thora (MS 6) and finally Kristian (MS 1). The two
smallest boys Ottar and Einar was not born.

The coding system
For all descendants of Olava and Martin we use a coding system. All persons belonging to the Solberg
family are denoted with the letters MS (implying descendants of Martin Solberg).
Furthermore, in order to distinguish all the MS`s we use numbers. The first generation, that is the
children of Olava and Martin, is given by MS and one number. Thus MS 1 is their oldest child, Kristian, MS 2 is their next child, Hanna Marie and so on.
The grandchildren (2nd generation) are given by MS and two numbers – divided by a dot – MS x.x.
The great-grandchildren (3rd generation) by MS and three numbers (divided by two dots) – MS x.x.x
and so on.
The coding follows each person and makes it rather easy to see the family relation between the people and the generations. We shall start with giving you a few examples. You can realize how easy it
is and you can see how each member of the large family is related to the others.
Lets first give the children:
MS 1. Kristian (1882 – 1963).
MS 2. Hanna Marie (1884 – 1975).
MS 3. Anna Teoline (1886 – 1947).
In the picture below (taken about 1937) we see 4
generations, all women/girls. From right we have:
Elen Olava.
MS 4. Magna Olette (1888 – 1955).
MS 2 Hanna Marie (Hvaal). Second child.
MS 5. Andreas (1890 – 1891).
MS 2.4 Solveig (Maukon). One of the grandchildren.
MS 6. Thora Mathilde (1892 – 1986)
MS 2.4.1 Målfrid (Henriksen). One of the great
MS 7. Andreas (1895 – 1992).
MS 8. Arne (1897 – 1979).
MS 9. Ottar (1900 – 1974).
MS 10. Einar (1902 – 1947).

ca. 1938
Here you see parts of the Solberg family in 1938. Lets try to identify them with the right coding. We
start from left; MS 2.4 Solveig Maukon, the girl in front is MS 2.4.1 Målfrid Henriksen, behind her is
MS 7 Andreas Solberg. Then Martin and Olava Solberg, then MS 3 Teoline Gulli, MS 2 Hanna Hvaal
with MS 2.9 Håvald Hvaal in front. The three last women are unknown – they probably worked in
store to Teoline.
MS 1 Kristian
MS 1 Kristian Solberg (18/3 1882 – 20/5
1963). He was born on Skau and baptized in
Svarstad church. He married Lina Vissestad
(probably Vivestad today). Kristian traveled to
USA in 1905 the first time. He came back and
both Kristian and Lina emigrated in 1929. They
settled down in Brooklyn New York. They had a
girl; Ellen (1918).

Hanna Marie – MS 2
MS 2 Hanna Marie (Solberg) Hvaal (16/2 1884 – 1975). She was born on Skau and had
her childhood both on Skau and Solberg. She married Ottar Solberg in Svarstad
church February 7. 1906. She was 22 years and Ottar 24. They were the “user”
of some of the Svarstad farms such as Østre Sogn (1912 – 1915). That year Ottar
took over Solberg and run this farm until they finally took over Hvaal. Hvaal is a
farm south of Svarstad church on the east side of the river Lågen. Ottar passed
away in 1936 and Hanna took over the farm in the period 1936 – 1952. That year
her son Odd Martin took over the farm and Hanna lived as “retired” on Hvaal until
she passed away in 1975 – 91 years old.
Hanna and Ottar got all together 9 children – all baptized in Svarstad church.
