TILLER (Norway)

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Till-er Meaning: An old job-name meaning maker or layer of tiles, from either Old English, or possibly Latin.

Origin: For me, this name comes from Norway.

Variations: Currently this is the only variation of the name I have in my database.

Relation to me: This is my mother's father's father's mother's father's mother's surname, as far as I have been able to determine

Ancestors: (in ascending order from most recent with name)
i: Tiller (or Johnsdatter Tiller), Anna Magdalena, 1769 – 1846, Sor-Trondelag, Norway; Hans Heinrich Bordevick, 3 sons

ii: Tiller (or Olsen Tiller), Jon, ? – 1801, Norway, Marit Torresdatter, 4 daughters, 2 sons

iii: Anderson, Ole, 1715 - ?, Norway, Magdalena Arntsdatter, 3 sons, 1 daughter

Looking for:
Recently found the furthest back generation here with information on the Bordewick and Linchausen lines, though received no response to my email when I contacted the person, so I have no way of verifying this bit yet. My line came to me complete through Jon Olsen Tiller, and I've no information beyond the basics for his wife, so any information on this line would be very 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.
