Thank you all for this additional information about movement patterns! Jkmarler, thank you so much for locating Jens in the 1891 census! The name spellings changing so much from record to record is something I hadn't anticipated. I wish I could read more of the records, but sometimes I have trouble even deciphering the hand writing. There's something that looks like "Tisker" to me underlined on both Jens and his mother's records near the health conditions, but I am not sure I am right or what this means.

Not sure what that word is supposed to be. Its placed at the health questions in an ink that appears to be a slightly variant color, more purple than black. That same color appears in the underlines of the description of Elizabeth's occupation. Maybe was written later. Looks like there was some red pencil underlining done farther down the sheet too.

My Norske Engelsk dictionary from 1949 has a root word tiske which means whisper and next that tispe which means bitch. The familysearch Norwegian glossary has tiggar which is beggar. This will take a better Norwegian than me to figure out.

Could be right but there are empty lines above that could deal with occupation as well, better notarial options.

There are 3 in the household with the same notations Elen Abiga Jensdatter, Elizabeth and Jens.

Here is one of the other households with the word fisker spelled out, complete with the lower cross bar lacking in the other entries:
RA, Folketelling 1891 for 1834 Lurøy herred, 1891, s. 2204
Brukslenke for sidevisning:

Still fisker would be horses, not zebras!
