Vellik was the son of Anders and Mildri, tenants on the farm Nordvoll, and was the oldest of 6 siblings.
Vellik married Marit Skarålia in 1716, and during their short marriage, the two had a daughter, Maria, and a son, also named Vellik, born in the same year that his father died.
The daughter, Maria, married Halvar Eriksson Stensflott in 1743 – and she also named her son Vellik, in honour of her late father.
