Surnames: Chalman, Chelman, Kjellman
In 1865 my relatives Johan and Henning Edvard Chalman

Hello, my great grandfather Ocean (Ossian ?) Chelman (Kjellman ?) from Gotenberg Sweden came to Australia 18...? and married my great grandmother at Port Macquarie New South Wales Australia in the eighteen sixties. His Father's name was Christian Chelman and Mother's name was Olina Sorrensdotter (could be Torrensdotter) can you make a connection with this Chelman? I have got my fingers crossed.
Cheers......Nouvelle from Sydney Australia

Hi Nouvelle. My name is cheryl chelman & I live in Coffs Harbour NSW. i was doing a search on the family name & came across your query. i strongly believe that we are direct decendants of ocean Chelman as we have a fairly good record of the family tree. we have information about the marraige in port maqaurie / telegraph point etc and lots of other information relating to this family. if you would like more information please contact me, i would be happy to pass on whatever we know. I realise it has been a long time since your request but none the less you may still be interested in the information.awaiting your reply, cheryl

I'm a descendant of Ocean [no Carl in records I've found] Chelman & Jane [no Elizabeth in any record I've found] (nee Wilson)'s dau Christina who married Joseph Davis Rowsell. I wrote to a search organisation in Sweden many years ago & they advised that the family name of Chelman wouldn't have been correct as there were no Swedish surnames starting with 'Ch' & that his name would have more probably been Ossian Ksellman or Kjellman. Where did you find your info? One of Oceazn & Jane's sons was Ocean Carl Chelman & Elizabeth was the name of Jane's mother.

I am a descendant of Ocean Chelman [no Carl] who m. Jane Wilson [no Elizabeth, that was her mother] via their dau, Christina who m. Joseph Davis Rowsell. The Chelmans had 14 chn in NSW from my list. I am interested in your info & where you found it. I knew about the naming of sons/daus with the sons having either 1st or last of father's name with 'son' added & the dau either her mother's or father's 1st or family name with 'dotter' & means 'daughter of'. I was advised yrs ago when I wrote to Sweden that there wouldn't be any surnames commencing with 'Ch' & it would probably be 'Kjellman' or 'Ksellman'. Please contact as below.

I am related to Christan Kjellman, grandfather of Ocean Chelman (his real name was Ossian Kjellman). Christian Kjellman had a son also called Christian Kjellman, and his son Ocean (Ossian) left Gothenburg in Sweden 1853-1855 (not sure about the date). I know a lot about the Kjellman family before 1850.
