More identifiers of the family in Denmark (to see if you can tie them to Christian Jorgensen in Durham, England)...from Family Search. Birth dates not given.

Laurits Andreas Jorgensen christened 22 Dec 1872 in Farnum, Frederiksborg born to Jens Ferdinand Jorgensen and Andrea Margrethe Ancker

(A sister who could be called Clara Jorgensen - Clarinda/Clara is her paternal grandmother's name):
Anna Kristine Klarine Jorgensen christened 25 Oct 1874 born to Jens Ferdinand Jorgensen and Andrea Margrete Ancker

Alfrida Marie Juliane Jorgensen christened 04 Mar 1877 in Farnum, Frederiksborg born to Jens Ferdinand Jorgensen and Andrea Margrethe Anker

Laura Andrea Lovise Jorgensen christened 08 Jul 1879 in Farnum, Frederiksborg, born to Jens Ferdinand Jorgensen and Andrea Margrethe Anker

=========================================================
Here is an Andrea Magrethe who appears to be same woman as wife of Jens Ferdinand Jorgensen and seemingly married in 1890 to Soren Jensen:


1890
Frederiksborg, Ølstykke, Farum, Farum, et Hus, 11 F. 1, FT-1890, C4406
Søren Jensen 34 Gift Husfader Forstadspinant Agebo
Andrea Magrethe Jensen 42 Gift Husmoder Hasle Bornholm
Laura Andrea Louise Jørgensen 10 Ugift Barn Farum
Charl Alfred Jensen 5 Ugift Barn Farum


Here in 1880 is Andrea Margrethe Anker, mother of the "candidate" Christian Jørgensen found by Karsten. She is a widow. She and her four youngest children are living with her father-in-law. She is working as housekeeper; this census record has many more people in it and I'm not sure if she is a housekeeper for the estate or housekeeper for Lars.

1880
Frederiksborg, Ølstykke, Farum, Farum, Et Hus, 7, FT-1880, C7869
Lars Jørgensen 72 Enkemand Husfader, Pensioneret Skovfoged Esbønderup Sogn Kronborg Amt
Andrea Margrethe Jørgensen f. Anker 32 Widow Husbestyrerinde Hasle Bornholm
Laurits Andreas Jørgensen 7 Ugift Hendes Barn Farum Sogn Frederiksborg Amt
Ane Kristine Clarine Jørgensen 5 Ugift Hendes Barn Farum Sogn Frederiksborg Amt
Alfrida Marie Jiliane Jørgensen 2 Ugift Hendes Barn Farum Sogn Frederiksborg Amt
Laura Andrea Laurine Jørgensen under et aar Ugift Hendes Barn Farum Sogn Frederiksborg Amt

Enkemand Husfader = widower, housefather/male head of house
Pensioneret Skovfoged = retired game warden

Husbestyrerinde = housekeeper

Gift = married; Ugift = unmarried

Hendes barn = her child

Andrea Margrethe Jørgensen f. Anker = born Anker (maiden name)

Sogn = parish; amt = political division that is like a US state

This place is Farum in Farnum sogn, Ølstykke herred, Frederiksborg amt, Denmark. In the census record, the last entry is the person's birth place - a place name of sogn + amt.

Christian, age 9, is noticeably missing from the 1880 census record. It is possible he works and lives with another family. He seems too young to sign on as a ship's boy.
