Influence on Henrik Ibsen

Hedvig was named for her maternal grandmother, Hedevig Paus. The character Hedvig in The Wild Duck is widely believed to be named for her and/or her grandmother.

Marriage

She married ship's captain Jacob Stousland, and was the mother of merchant and politician Carl Stousland (1860–1941), who served as a Member of Parliament for Skien and as the Mayor of Skien.
