Paulus Arthur PETERSEN (Great-Grandfather) - This was his name in South Africa?

Just wondering how you know the other names of the Pedersen family.

My family members said that before the PETERSEN emigrated to South Africa there surname was PEDERSEN (Norway).

My Great-Grandfather Paulus Arthur Petersen dad Carl everybody called Grandfather Carly (nickname) so I search PEDERSEN family emigrated from Norway to Transvaal South Africa and only two stood out of the all the info: 
http://www.disnorge.no/slektsforum/viewtopic.php?p=673139 (on this website they spelled Carl with a K)
http://www.ancestry.com/genealogy/records/carl-johan-pedersen_11879806 (on this link Carl has a son named Arthur)

Thank you
