Categories: Porsgrunn, Telemark, Norway

Vestsida (West side), or Vestre Porsgrunn, is the part of Porsgrunn town which is situated on the north-western shore of the quite wide Skien/Porsgrunn river, and until 1763 was part of Solum parish. In that year Porsgrunn was established as a separate "Prestegjeld" (ecclesiastical parish) with its own pastor, Jeremias Hagerup, whose parish register commences in March 1764. Porsgrunn was granted a limited town status in 1807.

In the Solum, Telemark, Norway One Place Study the inhabitants of Vestsida, Porsgrunn will, to some extent, be categorised under the farms Bjørntvet søndre and Klyve østre, divided by the small, meandering river or brook Klyvebekken, from whose premises it emerged, until 1764. However, "Porsgrund" was used as a place name in documents long before its status became official, and many times it can be impossible to discern whether they are on the Klyve or the Bjørntvet premises. Vestsida had its own chapel with a cemetery which in the Solum parish register always is called "Porsgrund". It seems unnatural to categorise profiles, for whom we have no idea of their place of living save a burial entry, under a somewhat random farm. In such cases it may appear legitimate to use this category, lest yet another category under Solum Parish should be created.

To complicate matters even further, the borders of Vestsida were rather diffuse, at least until 1796, when a commision set them down on paper. From the census of 1801 on the view is a lot clearer, although a few households there are enumerated in both parishes.

This study has the fortune of being able to utilise a thorough house-by-house description of Vestsida, the book Christian P. Abrahamsen: Solum-Porsgrund - Det gamle «Vessia» (Porsgrunn: Porsgrund Historielag, 1991). This formidable work will be duly referenced and credited. Subcategories under the present one will mainly be enumerated by the fire cadastre numbers from 1807 used by Abrahamsen. The names begin with the letters "Brmnr." (for "Brannmatrikkelnummer", fire cadastre number) followed by 3 digits with leading zeroes, and sometimes an extra letter due to later divisions, and finally the modern street address.

The inhabitants of Vestsida, Porsgrunn until about 1814 are partially covered by the Solum, Telemark, Norway One Place Study. Thereafter they should probably be covered by their own One Place Study.
