Edward Hagerup b.1871

Edvard Hagerup was born in 1781 and he was also my great great great grandfather. When the delegates for the congregation that wrote the National Constitution of Norway were to be shipped from Bergen, his father in law provided his yacht and provisions for the journey that took almost 60 days.  As Edward Hagerup already was appointed Stiftsamtmand by the Danish King, he was the Kings representative in Norway.  

If he was present at Eidsvold in the April and May of 1814 it would probably have been as an advisor to the Danish Crownprince, later elected King og Norway for a few months.  Edward was not one of the delegates that signed the constitution.
