About Bastian Ramstad Egge

Bastian was from Ramstad on the south side of the Storfjord (across from present day Ørskog kommune; Ramstad was at that time part of Ørskog parish but today Ramstad belongs to Sykkylven kommune). Baptism and confirmation records give October 28 as date of birth; 1910 census and grave marker give October 17.

The 1865 census shows that Bastian was a servant (tjenestkarl) living in Sjøholt. In 1869 he married Oline Størkersdatter from Øvre Lande, and the marriage record shows that Bastian was then a tenant farmer ("pladsm[ann]") at Egge. The 1870 baptism record of their son Jens again identifies Bastian as a tenant farmer living at Egge. Bastian was a fisherman and a carpenter, and he helped to build the Ørskog church in 1873.

In 1883 Oline's brother Peter Størkersen Egge granted Bastian a lease (husmanns-setel) for Hjellen, an undeveloped piece of land ("et stykke udmark og et stykke ubebygget engmark") on the Egge farm. Bastian cleared the land and developed it into "a good small holding" (Ørskog Gjennom Tidene II 380-1). Bastian moved a house up to the farm; this house was replaced with a new 1 1/2 story house in 1910.

Bastian and Oline had four sons. Following Oline's death in 1889, Bastian married Severine Jensdatter Vestre in 1891 and they had seven children. Of Bastian's eleven children, seven emigrated to the US (Ålesund emigration records, available at, and passenger manifests, available at and 18 year old Jens left for Dakota in 1889, departing Liverpool on the S/S Oregon on March 7 and arriving in Halifax, NS, on March 17. In 1892 Karl, then 19, and John, then 16, followed, departing Liverpool on the S/S City of New York and arriving in New York on March 17, with a stated destination of Dakota. After a visit home, Jens returned to the US with 15 year old Størker (Sam) in February 1894 on the S/S Berlin, via Southampton & Queenstown and New York. Karl was home for a visit in 1906, returning in July. Although the emigration record identifies him as a smith, the S/S Carmania passenger manifest lists his occupation as tailor. Three of his fellow passengers, Hans Storvik, Alfred Lindseth, and Mikal Maginessen [sic], declared that they were going to join Karl in Portland, ND. John was home in 1908, and in 1909 he returned to the US with 16 year old Oline. They sailed on the S/S Empress of Britain, departing Liverpool and arriving in Saint John, New Brunswick, on March 20. Oline and fellow passenger Eliza Hule both declared that they were going to join John in Buxton, ND. John is described as 5’7” with good complexion, dark hair, and blue eyes, and Oline as 5’4” with fair complexion, brown hair, and blue eyes. Sam was also home in 1909, returning in September. The passenger manifest of the S/S Oscar II gives his US address as the Chicago Hotel, Spokane, WA. Jens visited home in 1913, returning to the US in August on the S/S Empress of Ireland via Liverpool and Quebec. In May 1914, 18 year old Jensine left for the US. Although the emigration record gives “reiselyst” as her reason for travel, family tradition says that Jensine's mother sent her to help her sister Oline Nyjordet, who then had four children under the age of four. The passenger manifest describes her as 5’ 3 1/2”, with fair complexion, brown hair, and blue eyes, and states that she was going to join her sister, Mrs. Nyjordet of Portland, ND. Karl returned home for a visit with cousin Peter in 1920. In March 1923, 18 year old Nils left for the US via the S/S Stavangerfjord. The passenger manifest describes Nils as 5’ 8”, with fair complexion, light hair, and blue eyes, and states that he was going to join his brother John in Buxton, ND, as was his fellow passenger Martin Braute.

Bastian and Severine's son Bendik became owner of Hjellen in 1915. Bastian died in 1932 at the age of 93, and Severine died in 1939. Bendik and his sister Anne lived on the farm, and neither of them married. Hjellen is now owned by the family of Petrine Salthammer, Bendik and Anne's sister.
