Many Callenius in ScandinaviaOleKällenius

The name Callenius is present in Sweden and Finland. In Norway I have not seen Callenius family members. One of my former colleagues in Finland told me once, Callenius is a quite common name in Finland. O.k. in the telephone book of Finland, the name Callenius is not really often.

The variance of writing the name is more variable in the nordic countires compared to Germany. There you can find also Calenius, Källenius etc. By the way, Ola Källenius who is a board member since 2015 of the Daimler AG has his roots in Sweden (see pcitures, source: www.daimler.com).

If or how they are related to the German family members is totally open. During a resarch at the archives of www.ancestry.com and others, I have seen several Callenius members, which reach back to mid of 18th century. So e.g.:

Finland:
Gabriel Callenius: oo 1767 with Kirstin Johansdr, a son is baptized in Karjalohja Uusimaa
Maria Callenius: oo before 1755 with Thom Yleen, children are born in Lammi
Anna Callenius: oo before 1819 with Johan Puuka, children are baptized in Raisala Vipuri
Carl Callenius: lives 1841 in Liperi, Kuopio
Frans Callenius: lives 1890 in Kymi

Sweden:
Catharina Cecilia Callenius: oo before 1779 with Lars Högberg, children are bapized in Stockholm
Joan Israel Christophersson Callenius: born 14.06.1765 in Stockholm
Carl Georg Callenius: born 1857 in Adolf Fredriks församling
