His mother was unmarried at the time of his birth and he appears to have been raised by his mother's parents, Niels Clausen (also called Niels Purup and Niels Clausen Purup) and Inger Christensdatter. He is listed in the 1834 census as their 7 year old plejesøn (foster son) living with his grandparents in Øster Assels and in the 1845 census as their 18 year old dattersøn (daughter's son) living with his grandparents in Øster Assels.
