Born in Denmark and moved to Norway about 1643, married Siri Baardsdatter and died at Rise in Norway 1650.
Can anyone trace his family in Denmark please? It seems this name is in Denmark and North Germany, but it also appears in England (Thomas de Bay 1245 married Alice de Evers, name in England later changed to Bye c. 1340; any relation?? Source: Brothers Keeper website, family of Robert Steed b 1924 married Adah May Bye) I have also found a Jo Bay, 'gentleman' who went to Virginia in 17 century.
He came to Norway as a Sergeant of Infantry and was stationed at Akershus, then became a Lieutenant. His grandson Ole Bay Fjorsingstad was a Captain in the infantry.
