Ah, well...I cannot help with that book, I'm afraid - it is not exactly a common one.
On the subject of the line from HallgrŠimur to Sveinbj÷rn, though, beare that there is some disagreements between the various sources.
According to some of them, the line is:
...while other sources have it as...
Fewer sources support the first one, but today it is considered more likely.
The second one can be found in Fitjaannßll, probably written around 1670 (which is also the source of the story about the 50 children), and as that annal is a pretty accurate one overall, people used to trust it, and I suspect that is the linage you will see in your 1857 book.
However, the dates have made people suspect it.
HallgrÝmur PÚtursson was born in 1614
Gumundur HallgrÝmsson was born around 1540
Sveinbj÷rn Ůˇrarson must have been born before 1406 or so, as he became a priest in 1433 - and a gap of 134 years between a person and his grandfather is just very unlikely.
