  General Notes:

Laurits Johannesson was the progenitor of the younger branch of the
Galtung family. He was probably born somewhere in Ullensvang, possibly
at Øvre Børve. Laurits appears to have lived at Seim in Kvinnherred
from about 1537. Seim was the family seat of his brother-in-law, the

Laurits married Magdalena Farteinsdotter in 1585 in Norway. (Magdalena Farteinsdotter was born about 1555 in Aga, Ullensvang, Hordaland, Norway and died in 1620 in Norway.)
