Hello
I'm not sure if this is of any help especially so long after your post but I believe I am descended from Kristoffer Larsen via his son Martin.

The Larsen's left Norway in 1867 on the Brig Atalanta. You can see further details inclusing a passenger lists here -

The spelling of names was anglicised and subsequently appears as Larson (the name I use today) and some fornames also changed spelling - e.g. Kristoffer became Christoffer as seen on the census of 1880.

Hope this helps

Mark
