Archivistische beschrijving

Naam van de archiefvormer


Torsten Anderson (Feb. 9, 1834-19-) was born in Norway. He came to Labrador in the late 1840's as an employee of the Hudson's Bay Company. Torsten's real name was Torstein Kverna. Torstein is an old Norwegian spelling and pronunciation of Torsten. He changed his surname to Anderson in Labrador because Kverna was too difficult to pronounce, and because his father's name was Anders. The name Anders had been in the family for about two hundred years when Torsten was born. Torsten Anderson was the first man to settle in Makkovik, Labrador. He married Mary Thomas in 1859 and had a family of six boys and four girls.
