Sven was born in 1793 at Arnevik farm on Halsnøy in Fjelberg clerical district in Hordaland, Norway, the son of Halvor Svendsen Børøy and Pernille Ingebrigtsdatter Hammersland. He appears to have married Randvei Ammundsdatter Landa in about 1815; they had a child together in 1816 with Sven named as Sven Halvor Arnevig. There doesn't appear to be a marriage record in the available Fjelberg church records. He appears to have died before 1820 when his wife remarried, but again no record for his death appears in the Fjelberg church records.

Note that his wife Randvei is named at Randvei Amundsdatter Landa in her 1820 marriage record, so it is not clear whether Sven and Randvei had settled at Arnevik or at Landa.
