Notes on First MarriageEdit

  • "Martins Sangkister" lists Morten's first wife as Gjertrud Sivertsdatter of Holmen in some places and Gjertrud Knutsdatter in others. It does, however, list ancestors of Gjertrud, including a father Sivert.
  • The second tree used as a reference, i.e. "Our Melting Pot" does not shed any light on the issue, as it lists only Morten's second wife.
  • To confuse things further, the tree entitled "Ancesters for Johan Fredrik Svele" lists Morten's first wife as Inger Siversdtr of Holmen, which seems to be a combination of Gjertrud Sivertsdatter and Morten's mother Ingrid Sivertsdatter of Grøsfjell. The Svele tree relies on "Bjerkreimsboka, bind 3" for the information on the first marriage. (Bjerkreimsboka is a book written in 1997 by Lisabet Risa).
  • The fourth and fifth sources, "Aettens Agnatiske Linje" and the "Jim Vold Family Tree," list the name Gjertrud Knutsdatter.


  • Svale and Guri were children by Morten's first wife Gjertrud.
  • Gregorious was a son by Morten's second wife Marit.
