"Brono" is the name of a parish/clerical district in Nordland, Norway. It is usually spelled Brønnøy, but perhaps someone felt unable to make the Norwegian multi-national special character ø.

Reinfjord (Reinfjord lille/little Reinfjord) is the name of a FARM in Brønnøy, Nordland, Norway.

Look at the following family found living on Reinfjord lille farm in the 1865 Norwegian census for Brønnøy --

Looking carefully at that census it seems obvious that Peder's mother has remarried (look at the ages of the couple). Peder's future wife is possibly living in the household and working there as as "Tjenestepige" (servant girl) or that might only be another female with a similar name.

The parish church records will be your "gold mine" for genealogical information. Church records for Brønnøy, Nordland are available for years as early as 1669.

Good information about translating the formats of Norwegian parish church records during various time periods, many of the basic terms used and understanding how to use the information should be studied at this web site -

The Digitalarkivet web site has been adding scanned images of the original Norwegian parish church records for anyone with Internet access since November 2005.

The Digitalarkivet web site -
An English option is available by clicking on that word from either the left hand column or the blue link bar along the bottom of the homepage.
The scanned images are available from the homepage link "Skanna kyrkjebøker" [Norwegian version]/"Digitised parish records" [English version] which is listed along the left hand column and from the blue banner of links along the top section of the homepage.
After you've clicked on that link and a new main page has presented on the screen be sure and read the instructions that are available from the Digitalarkivet for navigating the scanned records. The instructions are available in Bokmål (official Norwegian), Nyorsk (Norwegian), Davvisámegiella (Saami), and English.
Recommended basic reading are the "Startsiden" [Norwegian version]/"Main page" [English version], "Brukerveiledning" [Norwegian version]/"User's guide" [English version] and "Om tjenesten" [Norwegian version]/"About this service" [English version].

For example - the marriage record between Peder M. Hendriks. and Inger H. Johansdtr. is recorded in Brønnøy, Nordland. Married 3 Sept 1867 and listed as the 9th marriage performed that year in that parish -- see page 295. (YES, that record verifies that she is around 9-10 years older that Peder and her father's name is listed as Johan Nielsen.)

Great information to learn to do Norwegian genealogy -
