Notes for Lars Torstensen (Øy)
It is hard to read his christening record, but the godparents and witnesses included Tiostel Anvord, Niels Haneberg [?], Tiostol Olson, Goro Olsdatter, Anne Overboe, John Buduhagen [??].300

He is mentioned in the skifteprotokolls for his parents.11

They moved to the Andvord farm between the birth of Marie in May 1827 and the birth of Torsten in October 1828, at least in so far as having the Andvord appellation added to the name in the church book. Kolden points out that they had been living there since 1822, so this needs to be looked at in more detail. Perhaps they had been residing on Andvord and working the other farms. Andvord and Øy are just across the Bovri river from each other.

He ran the Andvord uppigard farm from 1828 to 1855. They had been living on the farm from 1822.299
