My great-grandfather, Karinus Johannessen, bought part of the Kluke farm near Biri in 1903. He named the farm Lyngby. It was sold in 1935 & the name was changed to Thime. Lyng means heather or lush green ground cover & by means settlement. My grandfather (Mattias/Matt Lyngby) had a sisters named Marthe Marie, Anna, & Astrid and brothers Kristian & Olaf.

When the purchase of the farm was first recorded, it was LYGNBY so early records of my grandfather had that spelling. We were told it was a recording error but Karinus insisted it stay that way. After he died, the change was made & my grandfather's last name was Lyngby when he left NorwY.

Hope this helps & we may even be related!
