Re: Norred's before 1840

In Reply to: Norred's before 1840 by Charles Norred of 450

Charles, the Norred's originally came from Norway and migraded from their to other parts of the area to the US. The name means north of a village or a city, etc. I have info that shows this. Plus, I have done a lot of geneology on the Norred's which includes variations of the spelling, Nored, Nord, Norrid, etc. I had the spelling Nored. The reason for the various spellings is when census takers came around, some of the relatives were illiterate and the census taker would spell it how they thought it would be. One time they might put Nored, the next time another person might put the same person as Nord, Norred, etc.
