Anton Andreassen Grav. That means: Anton, son of Andreas, from Grav farm.

Norwegian surnames were established by law 1923. Some then chose to use the patronymic surname, some chose to use the farm name as a family surname. When they before 1923 moved to town they might use both surnames, - or change between them.
