Classification: Query
Surnames: Hansen, Jorkelsen, Jorkelsdatter, Larsen
Anybody researching a link to this family?
These are my husband's ggg grandparents and we are looking for connections and info on family in Norway and the ancestors of these two people. We have most of the descendants as most of the family of the above immigrated to New Zealand 1873.

Lars HANSEN was born in 1813 in the little town of Opstad
or Opsten Braaten as it was then known. At age 24 he married Eli JORKELSEN (formerly Jorkelsdatter) in 1837.
Eli (Elizabeth?) was born 15 February 1816.
Thereafter the family adopted the name of LARSEN and contrary to Norwegian custom retained this name to be perpetuated by future generations.
In Opstad they raised a family of six children:
Hans born 1838; Karen 1843; Lars 1853; Elizabeth 1857; Halvord 1860 and Karl 1861.
