Here is your Hans' original 1854 baptismal record (#61):
Source information: Rogaland county, Skudenes, Parish register (official) nr. A 3.1 (1847-1863), Birth and baptism records 1854, page 68.

It appears he was born at the Langager farm in Skudenes to farmer Svend Jacobsen and Anne Marie Hansdatter. Four of the witnesses were from the same farm - so they were probably related.

Here is Hans and his family in the 1865 Ferkingstad Parish, Skudenes/Skudesnæs Kommune, Rogaland County census. Note again, Langager/Langaker is a farm name, not the name of a parish or municipality/place in Norway. His parents were born in the same kommune/municipality.

Same location at the time of the 1875 Norway census:

Wikipedia: Karmøy is a municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is located southwest of the city of Haugesund in the traditional district of Haugaland.

Karmøy was created as a new municipality on 1 January 1965 after the merger of Kopervik (city), Skudeneshavn (city), Skudenes, Stangaland, Torvastad, Åkra, and most of Avaldsnes.

So that should explain the confusion!!

While researching your ancestors, I would stick with the Skudenes church records! :)

BTW: The letters "g" and "k" were often interchangeable in Norway: ie: Langager/Langaker

Hope this helps!!
