Gunvor Ellingsen: teacher
We have a single reference to Mrs Gunvor Ellingsen, teacher being the tenant resident at 24 Main Street in the 1943-44 Valuation Rolls of Property for the Burgh of Buckie. The house was also home to Carl Bakken and Jørgen Aspelund. We want to find out more about Gunvor.
What we think we know....
We have found that a Gunvor Synnove Jonassen was born at Brønnøysund on 5 June 1914, one of the daughters of Edmund Jonassen and his wife, Milly Indseth.
She married Carl Martin Ellingsen at Bode on 29 December 1939. This Gunvor was in Scotland by October 1940 as their daughter, Kari Scott Ellingsen, was born at Leith on 24 October 1940. There are two further Ellingsen births in Scotland recorded, one in 1943 in Kirkcaldy and another in Leith in 1944. We do not know if these are connected. We believe that Gunvor and Carl had four children in total. They returned to Norway and she died at Brønnøysund on 4 August 1961 at the age of 47. We have found this wedding photo of Gunvor Jonassen and Carl Martin Ellingsen.
We would love to know if we have the correct Gunvor Ellingsen and if anyone can tell us more we would be delighted to hear from them. If you are able to tell us anything further please contact us here.
