Maybe yours in 1865 census:

If this is your guy in the 1875 census his occupation is sailor with a temporary residence in Hamburg. If it is, he might leave and not have an "immigration" record.

Thank you for this: the first reference is definitely the right family but the second reference seems to have a different name : my great grandfather was known as Olof Jorgensen MEIER. Any ideas?

In this document he is listed as an able bodied seaman so I think that Jackie"s comment that he may very well not have any emigration records is relevant.

The earlier record for him in England that I have found is his marriage in 1881.

I also have looked at the 1875 Census posted by Jackie and it is in my opinion the same family as in the 1865 Census. Here are the two 1865 first 1875 second. In 1875 Census you are missing son Kresten. Oluf and Ludvig are at the bottom of the list. The rest is the same family different spellings

Thank you so much once again, there is lots of very useful info here! I am very surprised to see that my ancestor was at sea aged only 17.

It says often they are as young as 15!

Hi again. Further to my query about my great grandfather Olof Jorgensen Meier b. 1856 Moss, are there any crew lists I could consult to find out more about his travels?

Thank you

The registers of such information kept by Norwegian authorities were explained in the article that jkmarler gave you the link to just above goes into that subject.

At least some of those records must now be available scanned and online because you probably noticed the two other links shared with you by jkmarler in the posting above dated 02/04/2020 : 20:09:43.
