Notes for Dorothea Christopherdatter Femmer:

The following is from "The Aandahl Family" by Odd Meringdal: 2

"The Femmer family in Norway would probably find roots in their pedigree somewhere down in Germany- most likely from Fehmarn.  In the 16th and 17th century, members of this family had high positions and were wealthy.

"One Hans Jorgensen Femmer lived at Torvika Gjemmes in the county of More and Romsdal.  He was born in 1618 and died in 1685.  He married Gunnlid Hansdatter Leth.  She later married Hans Orbach, the District Judge in Romsdal.  

"We also mention Dorothea Christopherdatter Femmer, born about 1724.  She married goldsmith Johan Lokke (or Lyche).  He died at Torvika, Nordmore in 1778.  She was his second wife.

"From the metriculum of 1661 we see that Hans Femmer  had income from a part of the farm Ness at Aandal.
