Ludvig Martin VILHELMSEN was born on 22 Feb 1860 in Flekkefjord, Vest-Agder, Norway. He was baptised on 18 Mar 1860 in Flekkefjord, Vest-Agder, Norway. He died on 20 Jul 1944 in Kogarah, NSW, Australia. He was buried on 22 Jul 1944 in Woronora General Cemetery, Sydney, Australia.
Ludvigs name has been written in many ways. As Ludwig in some records. In Norwegian records his patronymic may be found as WILLUMSEN (son of Willum). VILHELMSEN is the spelling to be derived from his birth and baptism record in the Flekkefjord parish register, where his fathers name was written as Vilhelm. Hence that spelling is used in this family tree. In New Zealand and Australian records his surname can be found as WILLIAMSEN and WILLIAMSON. The latter spelling is used by his descendants.
He was counted in a census in 1865 in Flekkefjord, Vest-Agder, Norway. He was confirmed on 4 Oct 1874 in Flekkefjord, Vest-Agder, Norway. He was counted in a census in 1875 in Flekkefjord, Vest-Agder, Norway. He intended to immigrate on 17 May 1883 to Lyttleton, Canterbury, New Zealand, but remained in the UK to await his sister Petra Malia. Petra, aged 15, emigrated from the UK with Ludvig. He immigrated on 19 Oct 1883 to Lyttleton, Canterbury, New Zealand, and is said to have left the ship of the Taranaki coast to join older sister Ida Lovise who immigrated in 1872. Ludvig emigrated about 1919 to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Ludvig's parents were Wilhelm Mathias LARSEN (1843-) and Christine Pauline JENSDR.
