Personal Notes:
Christen Madsen Biltoft was the son of Peder Vedsted Biltoft and Kirstin Marie Jensdatter. He was born on 22 April 1850 in Grindsted, Varde, Ribe Amt, Denmark. Apparently, Christen and his brother Jens moved to South Jutland to earn more money as young men. When Christen was 22 years old, they decided to migrate (assumedly for the same reason) and departed on the Friedeburg, which left on the 18th May 1872. The brothers arrived in New Zealand on 31 August 1872. The boys' mother, Kirstine had died in Denmark only two years previously. According to family legend, they were very impressed with the country at first. They even wrote home and tried to convince their father Peder Vedsted Biltoft to join them. However, life in New Zealand soon became tiresome and the boys wrote again to their father. Peder never received their letter, as he and the family were already en route to Australia. Eventually, Christen and Jens joined their family in Queensland, Australia. Christian Biltoft and Jens Pedersen Biltoft married the same day (9 March 1883) to sisters. Christen married Dorothea Christina Hansen, and Jens married Anne/Annie Hansen. They were two of four known daughters of Jens and Marie Bolethi (Peterson) Hansen. Even though their father Peder always wanted to return to Denmark in his old age, this never eventuated, as he worried that the cold weather would be too much for him. After his father's death in 1897, Christian inherited his father's rather substantial property at Freestone Creek (near Warwick). According to family records, Christen and Dorothea's children were as follows:
*Peter Vedsted Biltoft (dec as infant)
* Maria Mathilda Biltoft (known to family as Matilda Maria)
*Peter Vedsted Biltoft
*James Martin Biltoft
*Christopher Adolphus Biltoft
*Elsie Christine Biltoft
*Hilda Dorothy Biltoft
*Henry Herbert Biltoft
Christen and Dorothea both died and were buried in Toowoomba, QLD. Christen died on the 11 June 1923 and Dorothea died more than 20 years later on the16th March 1945.
