I was interested because my mother was born Aadland. This name came from Aadland in Aakre parish on Karmoy, Norway. My fathers great grandfather was also named Aadland, but he came from another farm, Odland in Tysvaer. There are also Aadland farms in Stord, Fuse, Os, and Alversund parishes. I tried to search Digitalarkivet http://www.hist.uib.no/arkivverket/http://www.hist.uib.no/arkivverket/ for George in Tysvær and Aakra, but had no success. Maybe his father came from the farm and brought the name with him?
