I am trying to find anyone with these surnames that may have immigrated to New Zealand from Norway. Apart from information from a few various boats into New Zealand I have so far been unable to locate the surnames Ericksen, Martinsen and Mandell/Mandahl on any of them.
I would appreciate any help on this. I believe the Hovding made 3 journeys but have only been able to locate one passenger list being in 1873.
thanks,
Kymm

Hi kymm

Some of those emigration to New Zealand are registered in the Digitalarkivet database. It would have been easier to help you if you had included more information about the persons you are looking for. By searching for emigrants destined for New Zealand I found:

Erik Eriksen 1year 11months from Fredrikstad traveling with his family on the HÝvding in 1872

Found no Martinsens, but a Mortensen family

Christian Mandal, Factory laborer age 34 from Kristiania departing on the HÝvding in 1872

Could any of those be your people?
