About kjøbmand Alexander Grieg

Edvard Grieg’s family was a typical Bergen-family: His great grandfather Alexander Greig (later changed to Grieg) came to the city from Cairnbulg close to Aberdeen in Scotland in the 1770’s. He founded the family business, which was trade with dried fish and lobster across the North sea. The raising of a child in a bourgeois family in the 19th century Norway often included teaching of music or other forms of art.

Greig udtales Gregg, og stammer fra det skotske Macgregor. Alexander emigrerede til Bergen omkring 1770, og først efter han blev norsk statsborger den 30. oktober 1779, forandrede han sit efternavn til Grieg, Han begyndte med forretningsvirksomhed i Bergen og viste sig at være usædvanlig dygtig. Gradvist opbyggede han en betydelig eksportvirksomhed med fisk og hummer, hovedsagelig til England.
