To all the Juell's out there and to you JJ: At the present there 213 people in Norway (and 637 ? in the States) carrying the name JUELL. They all, to the best of my knowledge, stem from this one person: Christian Juell, Royal bailiff and circuit judge (if that is the right translation for such a position way back then) in the district of Østerdalen, Solør and Odalen in the county of Hedmark, Norway. He was born 2.June 1679 in Copenhagen, Denmark and died 3.August 1744 at his farm Bjørneby. Parents: Father: Jens Christensen Juell born ? died 1689,buried in Christiania (Oslo today) 29.11.1689. Mother: Johanne Jensdatter born ? died 1689 buried 18.02.1689
Grandfather: Christen Juell born? died? wife also unknown
Christian was a busy man, had 3 children with his first wife , Else Margrethe Hof and 14 more with his second wife, Marthe Leth. I hail from the third child in the second marriage: Claus Juell, parish priest in the city of Risør southern Norway so obviously, his decendents are the ones that interest me the most.
Should there be someone else out there that wants to know some more details, don't hesitate to ask, I will answer if I can (and sometimes if I can't).
