HANSEN (Denmark) – Part III

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Hans-son/Hans/sen. Meaning: Patrynomic name meaning “Son of Hans,” or Johannes, which is the Danish form of John.

Origin: Danish

Variations: In this case, the name is actually Hansdatter, but that is the feminine form of the same name. As for others, there are enough forms of this name that everyone knows a large number—Hanson, Hansson, Jones, Johnson, etc… I’ve actually got this name in several spots on my tree—both the Bordewick spouses and the Hansen spouses have variations on the name, and will be covered on their own.

Relation to me: This is my father's mother's father's father's father's mother's maiden name.

i: Hansdatter, Ane Marie, 1797 – 1876, Denmark?; Knud Knudsen, 1 son known

Looking for:
Another dead-end line. I know that her father's first name would likely be Hans given her surname, and she was probably Danish, given her name, but beyond her son and marriage, I know absolutely nothing else about Ane Marie or her family. Any information would be more than welcome.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
