He was born in Christiania to Nils Svensson and Karen Andersdatter Killerud.[1] His brother was Nils Landmark. Contrary to some sources, he was not born with the name Landmark, but some of the children took the name as grown-ups.[2]

He married Jacobine Caroline Wind (1733–1833). They had nine children, although at least one died young. One of their sons were Jens Landmark,[1] known as a military officer and politician.[3]

His wife, born in Borgund near Aalesund, was a distant relative of the brothers Peter Daniel Baade Wind Kildal and Peter Wessel Wind Kildal.

Andreas Landmark worked as a bailiff (foged) in Søndmør.

In 1821 he was elected to the Norwegian Parliament, representing the constituency of Romsdals Amt.[4] His brother Nils Landmark served during the same period.[5]

Andreas Landmark died in 1839 in Ørsta.[1]
