Christopher Tostrup

Christopher Henrik Holfeldt Tostrup (born 20 September 1804 in Hjelmeland, died 17 October 1881 in Christiania) was a Norwegian timber merchant and land-owner. In 1842, he co-founded the Tostrup & Mathiesen company, one of the largest such companies in Norway. He also owned the estate of Kjellestad.

His heirs sold the Tostrup & Mathiesen company to the Mathiesen family in 1892, and it was subsequently renamed Mathiesen Eidsvold Værk, and much of the company is today continued under the name Moelven Industrier. He was the grandfather of art collector and philanthropist Christopher Tostrup Paus.
