Home Drabeng 1800-1850 Drabeng in 1801 Ole Olsen Årøy's family Drabeng in the 1860s Drabeng in the 1870s

The census of 1801 gives us a clear picture. Drabeng is occupied by four families, all noted as "lappe-folk" and all with fairly direct Huas connections. Here they are in the order in which they appear in the census.

For an attempt to show relationships between the inhabitants of Drabeng in 1801, look at this. -->

Peder Jensen

Peder grew up in the Huas family from about the age of 10. He is "Fisker og gaardman" and is living with his wife Ane Larsdatter and their four daughters. Their only son, Lars, has died.

They also had two unmarried servants: 18-year old Erik Eriksen from Tornedalen, and Barbro Pedersdatter who was 21.

Peder Andersen

The second family is headed by Peder Andersen, "Fisker og gaardman". He is the son of Anders Johnsen, the second husband of Ane Johansdatter. Her first husband was Joen Peersen Huas' son, Peder Joensen. Anne is "Kaarqvinde" in the household, an old woman of 70.

Peder Andersen's wife is Anne Jonsdatter and they have a one-year old daughter Anne Hellena. Living with them are his brother Jon and sister Anne, both unmarried, and "tjener" Anne Hansdatter, 27.

Anders Larsen

Anders Larsen, "Fisker og gaardman", is the head of the third household. His wife is Walborg Andersdatter, also the sister of Peder Andersen. They have three young children, Anders, Ole and Jon, and a fosterdaughter Sara Aslachsdatter.

An unmarried "tjener", Peder Johannisen, is part of the household. He is 59 years old. Maybe he is Ane Johansdatter's younger brother?

Hans Mortensen

It is in the fourth family that we find direct descendents of Joen Peersen Huas and Aleth Olsdatter. Not Hans Mortensen or his wife Elen Henrichsdatter, but her three children by her first husband, Ole Joensen. Ellen, Ole and John Ols are not yet married and still living in Drabeng with their mother and her second husband. Ellen marries in 1801, Ole marries in 1806 and John marries in 1810. Ole and John become tenants in Drabeng in 1812.
