Wow Leif this is fantastic - it looks like you might have found him and I'm not sure how but what I did not mention in my original post was that when I first found him in Edinburgh he was a tailor :-) This to me is proof that you have found the correct person.
There is a distant rumour in the family that he was in the Swedish Navy and jumped ship when the ship docked at Leith in Edinburgh. I wonder if we can discover if this was true or not?
Leif is the date 1842-06-08 his birth date and was he born in Oviken? I have looked on the map but cannot be sure if Oviken is in one of the areas Uppland, Gastrikland and Halsingland - is this so?
Obviously I need to get his birth certificate and any details of where he lived and can I ask if this is possible and is that what the numbers are in your post?
I have lots of questions and am hoping that you and other people will be able to help me solve this problem.
