    Notes 
    • Shown as Anders Andersen, age 27 in record of his 1834 marriage to Beret Andersdatter, age 27, of Burstad farm. This record shows his father as Anders Pedersen. This record at Alstadhaug Church, Skogn, Norway. The record of transactions re: farm Eggen lower east (section 23 farm 8 in Skogn indicates that Anders bought farm in 1838 at which time his name was changed to Eggen as was the custom. Also that farm sold or transferred from Anders Andersen to son Daniel Andrew Andersen Eggen for 1200 Kr on 12 Apr1886. [This was several months after the death of Anders (6 Jan 1886). The record does indicate that this transfer was from Anders Anderson with 'Lensmand',ie police or magistrate, K.W.Krog. The following entry indicates that this Mr. Krog was somehow involved with the farm from 15 Dec 1885 to 3 Aug 1886, that is, from several weeks prior to the death of Anders up to the second date mentioned in the entry recording the transfer to his son Daniel.] This farm was sold by Bina Hansdatter Eggen (Daniel's Widow) to her son Olaf Danielsen Eggen for 2500 Kr on 2 Nov 1897. [There are many other transactions re: this farm up through 1936 including one that Olaf Eggen borrowed 10,000Kr on 21 Jun 1904. Also that power line was run across the farm on 16 Mar 1922.] The Church record of son John's birth in 1849 and daughter Karen's birth in 1845 show Anders as Andres Andersen of 'Nedre Eggen', ie Lower Eggen, however the marriage record for his oldest son Anders in 1860 shows his name as Anders Eggen. --All of above records from the visit of E. Allan Eggen to Norway in 1991. Document from Arild Eggen obtained in 1997 indicates that farm Eggen Lower East (farms 23, # 8,9,&10) were separated [when?] from Lower Eggen purchased by Sevald Johnsen Landstad in 1797. After Sevald died "Langenget" was separated as heritage to his daughter Karen Sophie who married Nils Thoresen Rennstein. In 1836 Nils sold the farm to a Peder Andersen who owned it for about 2 years when he sold it ("Langenget") to Anders Anderssen Holm for 185 specialdaler. Anders bought the Eggen farm in Skogn in 1837. [ He may have bought farm in late 1837 but didn't register it until early1838.] On 12 Apr 1886, a few months after Ander's death, the farm was transferred to his son Daniel Anderssen Eggen for 1200 kroner. Bina Eggen (Daniel's widow) sold farm to son Olaf Danielson Eggen and Olaf sold to son Harald. Harald's wife Nancy sold to Arild (son). Arild now owns farm as of Jul 1997 and leases the land while living in Bergen. Documents from Gunnar Eggen and Tor Eggen in 1997 indicate that the family moved from Stjørdal on 16 Feb 1838 then bought farm "Eggen Nedre Ostre" called "Langenget", ie farm 23 #8,9,10 in Skogn, on 16 Mar 1838. It is not clear to me (Douglas Eggen) if all three farms, 8,9 &10, were purchased by Anders in 1838. If so were they split up? In a phone conversation with Tor Eggen in Oct 1997 he said that the farm purchased by Anders Andersen Holmstrø had been separated from Eggen Lower East in 1836 as 23 no 8,9,10 and that this is now owned by Arild Eggen.
