About Olle Anderson

Slekter i Malangen av B. Ladnes (1949) s. 59:

"Ifølge skattemanntallet for Malangen 1630 bor Olle Andersøn i Kirkevik. Hvor denne mann er kommet fra har man ikke kjennskap til, da det dengang ikke førtes kirkebøker eller skifteprotokoller. Man vet heller ikke hva hans hustru het. Han er død før 1666."

Malangen bygdebok, s. 455, gnr. 27, Kirkevik, står det noe annet. Det har vært flere der før Olle Anderssøn dukket opp. Kirkevik skal ha ligget øde mellom 1642 og 1650, så da må Olle være død. Sønnen Ingebret Olsen er i Kirkevika ved folketellinga i 1666, 48 år gammel. Han regnes som en av Olles sønner.

Olle Anderson is the first known ancestor on the Ness Tree. His birth date and death date are unknown but it is known that, by 1630, he was apparently an adult and living at a farm in Norway called "Kirkevik". So, we can assume he was probably born by 1600, give or take a few years either way.

Tax census records ("skattemantallet") show that Kirkevik was already occupied about 1600 A.D. but was then unoccupied, on and off, between 1610 and 1630. During the times it was occupied, it was by different men, one of them Danish. These periods of unoccupation can be probably attributed to the sea-faring nature of some of these settlers coupled with wars ("krigene") and epidemics ("farsottene").

Records of 1630 show two settlers at Kirkevik - Niels Jonnson and Olle Anderson. Tax records go on to show that the Kirkevik farm was again unoccupied between 1642 and 1650. It is thought that Olle Anderson's descendants had, by then, moved to another farm called "Aspenes". But, one of his his sons, Ingebrigt Olsen, is thought to have moved back to Kirkevik at some point.

Olle Anderson was probably married but, if so, his wife's name is unknown. He had, at least, three children - sons - Ingebrigt Olsen, Niels Olsen & Gregers Olsen.
