Thomas Jensen and Eli arrived in Napier nz. Children were mary, jack, john and Minnie. I don't know which one had Edvard (edward) who married Laura Jese Ellis. They were my great grandparents who then had Doris, Edward and Edna (my grandmother). They are of course all dead but all lived in Auckland as do my family.

I have a Ola Madson married to S Godoy (1745-1812). Sons Mads Olsson Flateraker and Jan Olsson Flateraker who married Eli Nilsdtr Strangeland in 1806. Lived at Drivenes, Austevold. I think they are Eli Jansdtr Driveness parents???

Descendants of first son I believe is Ola Persson Flateraker (1915) would be interested in finding other relatives of this line.

HI,
we were looking for information on Thomas Jensen and his wife who left Norway for New Zealand in 1872 when we found this webpage. We are distant relatives - Thomas Jensens mother (Inger Nilsdotter) is my fathers great grandfathers sister. A book giving further information on the descendants and relatives of Thomas Jensen and others have recently been released. Let us know if you require any further information.
