The First Fugl Family - Page 1

The first Fugl1 family for which we have a record is that of Andreas Fugl, his wife, Elisabeth Christiansdatter, and their daughter, Karen (the Danish pronounce it Kahren.) We have not been able to find the birth records of any of them, so perhaps they moved into Fladstrand (present day Frederikshavn), Hjørring County, Denmark from another place.

The first record we have found is Karen's marriage to Ole Pedersen Biorloe. This took place in Fladstrand in 1786. At this time Karen was a widow with a seven year old son, Christian. We have found nothing about Christian's father except that we know his first name must have been Soren since  Christian was known as Christian Sorensen Fugl. Here is Karen's marriage record:2
