I am trying to tie my ancestor to Princess Cecelia
(Sverri Sigrudsson's sister) My ancestor is Niri
Ingebretson Rodningen Bakke b. 1741, d. 1805 is a 7 gr
grandson to Princess Cecelia. Oral history says he
married Anne Halvorsdatter Herbjornsrud b. 1744, d. 1810.
Anne's father was Halvor Kittlesson Herbjornsrud (b.
1708, d. 1788) and her mother was Christine Jensdatter
Skogen (b. 1707, d. 1744). Christine's father was Jens
Hansson Reine aand her mother was Ingeborg Trolldalen
Skogen. Then oral history says that Ingeborg's
grandfather was a famous man named Hans Reine. The
Herbjornsrud side also goes back to Hans Reine. They are
descended through Ingi Baardsson Reine or Skulli
Baardsson Reine. How do you find the descendency of royal
people? Also who is Hans Reine and am I spelling his name
correctly? Does anyone have any genealogy on these
people? The rest of my family are from Buskerud Norway,
Eftelot sogn. Please write to cguida @ djam.com or Chris

According to family tradition, my G-Grandfather, Orrin

have seen indicates the Peck name is not Norwegian, but
I've been told that there are Hiltons in Norway. Maybe
it's possible his father married a Hilton and he carried
his mother's maiden name as his middle name? Any
suggestions would help. Thanks.
