Is Lyngby a farm name in Norway?
Marit Johansdattar married Johannes Knudsen. Johannes died in 1862 in Lyngby u/Nord-Unset and Marit died October 5,1903 at Lyngby af Kluge.
They had three children and one was my great grandmother, Mathea, who was born in 1859 in Biri, Norway. Mathea and her siblings started to use the last name of "Lyngby" at some point.
I'm in contact with Lyngby relatives in Norway and in the USA...but no one can figure out why the name was changed to Lyngby from Johannesson.
I've been searching for a missing son of Mathea for 30 years and have just about decided to end my search. Just hoping someone can give me some insight into the Lyngby name.
