Jorgen Marcussen was born in Orkney. In 1683 He was a weaver and became a burgess of Bergen on 2 October 1672. He paid taxes in 1683 while still working as a linen weaver and at some point married Anne Cathrine Monsdatter (d.1695). On 2 May 1694 he became the guardian for Henrich Lammer's child. Marcussen was apparently burnt in a fire c.22 June 1702 when his second wife, Dorothe Phlergs returned to her native Stralsund to get help.
