In 1858 the Norge departed from Bergen, and arrived at Quebec June 12th. She was mastered by Capt Jetmundsen. Because the National Archives of Canada [NAC] did not start the archiving of passenger lists before 1865, and the Norwegian emigration records did not start before 1867, there is no surviving passenger list for this voyage in any of those archives.

In 1859 she left Bergen for Quebec and arrived there on June 19th. Master was Capt. Jetmundsen. There is no surviving passenger list for this voyage in the Canadian or Norwegian archives, see above.

The Norge was only 591,8 reg. tons but was carrying 522 passengers, this was much more than what the ship was allowed to according to the passenger act. The captain would usually be fined for violating the 1828 passenger act. There is no surviving passenger list for this voyage in the Canadian or Norwegian archives, see above.

In 1862 she departed from Bergen on Apr. 24th and arrived at. Montreal on June 21.
