Celsius family

The Celsius family descended from the vicar of Ovanåker parish in Gävleborg, Sweden, Nicolaus Magni Travillagæus, later Alptaneus (1577–1658), whose son, the mathematician and astronomer, Magnus Celsius, took the name Celsius which was the Latinized form of his fathers vicarage and his childhood home .

A branch of the family was ennobled November 9, 1756 with the name von Celse, Olof Celsius the Elder's children. The von Celse branch of the family became extinct in 1838 with the death of Lieutenant-Colonel Olof von Celse.
