Our Family story

The following is extracted from “Our Family”, researched and written by Lars Sigvard Jensen, a retired schoolmaster and the brother of Sonja Cole’s grandmother, in the early 1960s. It covers the history of his family, but has a number of close links with the Bjerregaard's, as will be seen.

Text in [square brackets] has been added by the translator, as have the notes at the end on land measurement, currency, the feudal system in Denmark, and the summary of genealogy.

To the benevolent reader of this book:

“Your days are short, but the family’s are long” (Jeppe Askjaer)

Here are some passages from our family’s history, which have occupied me – with interruptions – for a half score years. How successful my efforts have been, I leave for the reader to decide.

Lars Sigvard Jensen, August 1964

 

OUR FAMILY

How the family has lived and worked.

Gislum herred [herred = an administrative/juridical district] in Aalborg county, extends westwards as far as the Limfjorden, to Hvalpsund, and Louns and Risgaard bays.

Here in this locality, especially in Ullits/Foulum and Louens/Alstrup parishes, the family can trace it ancestry back as far as written records exist for farming people from this area, i.e. back to the seventeenth century. But there is absolutely no doubt that the family has lived there long before that, as the numerous burial mounds remind us.

Living conditions must surely have been favourable: rich food from the waters of Limfjorden, as the famous stone-age kitchen refuse heaps at Ertebolle testify [Ertebølle køkkenmødingen = piles of oyster and mussel shells discovered on the ancient sea shore, now transferred to the National Museum]; the woods, well-stocked with seeds and fruits and a variety of animals to provide food for people. Place names, especially in Louens parish, still remind us of that: Skou [wood], Ovenskov [above the wood], Hessel [hazel?], Illeris [? ] just as the remains of these woods can still be seen today as thickets and spinneys.

At that time the value of the woodland depended to some extent on how many pigs it could provide fodder for. Mariager Abbey District’s new land register of 1688 sets out the tax valuation of the woods in Louens parish:

“Melbjerg Wood pig beech mast: hartkorn 2 skp. 2 alb. [see notes at end]

Grazing in the same woods and on various heathlands: hartk. 4 skp. 3 fdk.

North and west of the same wood one piece of water meadow: hartk. 2 skp. 2 alb.

Another water meadow, used by Søren Pedersøn’s farm in Louens: 2 td. 5 skp. 2 fdk. 2 alb

Knud and Lyngdal wood, beech mast: hartk. 1 skp. 1 alb.

Grazing in the same woods: hartk. 3 skp. 2 fdk. 2 alb.

A water meadow below the wood: hartk. 1 fdk. 1 alb.

A water meadow called Skammeriis: hartk. 2 skp. 2 alb”.

Here in these parishes “slægt fulgt slægters gang” [quotation from a Danish hymn: “generation followed generation”] through the ages. Like the family

today, they worked continually to improve their conditions, to “opfylde jorden og gøre sig den underdanig!” [“replenish the earth and bring it to subjugation”: Biblical quotation]. They attempted, by offering sacrifices, to obtain the favor of the higher forces. They honored their dead leaders with great efforts to put stone and earth together to create fitting memorials – the old burial mounds!

With the arrival of Christianity they built churches, usually on the sites where the heathen temples had stood. The first Christian churches were simple affairs, but the later churches were built so solidly that they still stand today. Hopefully our forefathers collected the large granite boulders to build the churches, with joy, and did not “sigh”, as St. Paul wrote!

Here in the churches the family’s newborn were received and by baptism became members of the Christian community; and the church followed each one through his whole life, short or long. It tried, as well as it could, to follow the words of the scriptures, “to teach them to follow the commandments”. And the church was, perhaps in all its weakness, ready to give help and support to each member of the family if life brought setbacks, and then, at the end of their days, to lay the dead to rest in consecrated ground alongside their forefathers.

------------------------------

(page 7)… Hans Pedersen [1 – numbers link to genealogy summary at the end] from Stistrup was born in 1683. From 1724, and probably until his death, he had a farm as copy holder [form of tenancy under the feudal system in Denmark: see notes] under Gunderupgaard, hartk. 7 td. 3 skp. 2 fdk. 0 alb. [41030 sq. m.: see notes]. In 1767 “farmer Hans Piesen of Stistrup died” (the priest wrote Piesen, as he was known in his daily life [dialect pronunciation of Pedersen]).

In Gunderupgaard’s probate register one can read about the probate. His heirs were his widow, Pernille Christensdatter [1a] and children: Morten Hansen [2], who was at home, Søren Hansen, who lived in Ullits, Jørgen and Chr. Hansen. Morten signed on behalf of the other heirs to give up their right to inherit immediately. Their mother could keep the home, and pay out the inheritance later [see notes].

Morten Hansen took over the tenancy from his mother. He was born 15th January 1714 in Stistrup and died 22nd October 1775 aged 61½ years. Morten’s wife was Johanne Jensdatter [2a], born 1707 and died 6th November 1785 aged 78 years. Morten and Johanne were married in Strandby church in 1745. Her parents were Jens Sørensen of Strandbygaard and housewife Ane Cathrine.

Following the death of tenant farmer Morten Hansen in Stistrup on 16th October 1775 [but see above: 22nd October 1775??], there was a probate hearing at Gunderupsgaard.

The heirs were his widow, Johanne Jensd. together with their children Christen Mortensen, who was of age, a daughter married to Jørgen Christensen in Dollerup, and Bodil [3] and Anne who were minors. Their brother Chr. Mortensen, who lived in Dollerup, was their guardian.

The farm was well stocked, both outside and in. We are told the size of the stock:

1 black horse 14 yr old 5 rd.

1 blue-grey horse 7 yr old 6 rd.

1 black mare 16 yr old 4 rd.

1 black colt 3 yr old 10 rd.

1 black foal 2 rd.

1 black and white cow 5 yr old 5 rd.

1 white and black cow 5 yr old 4 rd.

1 black-starred cow 7 yr old 2 rd.

2 grey heifers 1 yr old 2 rd. 4 mark

2 female calves 1 rd.

22 old sheep at 3 marks each 11 rd.

6 lambs 1 rd.

1 boar and 1 sow 4 mark

The farm’s size/taxable value was hartk. 2 td. 4 skp. 1 fdk. 1½ alb. [14050 sq. m.].

The valuers considered that the farm ought to have the following:

 

A. 4 sound work animals at 13 rd. = 52 rd.

B. 1 cart with accessories 8 rd.

1. plough with all accessories 3 rd. 4 mark.

E. 2 harrows 1 rd. 2 mark.

------------------------------

(page 16) … The older part of the family still know the name Thammes Stistrup [4] well! Born in 1784, he had the farm in Stistrup which is now called “Stavnsgaard”. His father was Thomas Nielsen [3a] and was an “immigrant” from Grønnerup in Strandby parish. Thomas Nielsen was born in 1750 and died 5th August 1784. The priest wrote in the church register at Foulum “Drowned in the fjord”. There is no further information about the accident. He was married on 11th May 1776 to Bodil Mortensdatter [3] from Stistrup, daughter of farmer Morten Hansen [2]. After Thomas Nielsen’s death Bodil remarried on 19th November 1784. Some would say it was a little quick, but there are reasons to be taken into account: that it could be difficult for a widow to sit with a farm tenancy and small children. Bodil’s second husband was Christen Pedersen from Aars parish. They were “engaged in Stistrup at the widow’s home".

The priest wrote in Foulum church register in 1784:

"On 11th August Thomas Nielsen’s widow, Bodil Mortensd. of Stistrup bore a son. He was baptized at home, and called Thomas [4]. The baby’s baptism was registered on 5th September. Godparents: Maren Nielsd., servant, Mads Nielsen of Grynnerup, Christen Mortensen of Dollerup, Bertel and Michel Jensen, Søren Gleerup’s daughter Secilie (Stistrup mill) all from Stistrup.”

On the previous line it says:

“On 5th August Thomas Nielsen (who drowned in the fjord) was buried, 34 years old.”

Thomas Thomassen [4] of Stistrup was married on 24th January 1813 to Kirsten Mogensdatter [4a] from Ullits.- Kirsten died 2nd January l827 having borne 8 children in 14 years, among them my [i.e. the original author’s] grandmother.

Thomas Thomassen was married a second time in Foulum church to Ane Christensd. from Kaldal in Alstrup, on 1st July 1827.

Ane must have been a courageous girl – she immediately became the mother of 8 children, and bore another 9 herself before her death on 24th March 1865 at the age of 62 years.

Thomas Thomassen died in Stistrup as a pensioner on what had been his farm on 23rd September 1866, at the age of 82 years. [It was common practice for old people who could no longer work the land to sell the farm to their children or a third party, with a formal agreement that they could remain living on the farm, with board and lodging provided – even if the farm was subsequently sold during their lifetime.]

When the probate hearing from Gunderupsgårds manor met in Stervbogaarden in Stistrup on 31st January 1827, [following Th. Th.’s first wife’s death] the heirs were the widower and eight children the oldest 13 years, and the youngest, Ane Kjirstine, 6 weeks. The dead wife’s brother, farmer Christen Mogensen from Ullits attended as guardian of the children. Parish clerk Vagn Jacobsen of Stistrupgaard and farmer Anders Bertelsen of Stistrup attended as valuers.

It is clear from the records of the valuation that, for those days, it was a well-stocked household, with lots of clothes and bed linen.

When the estate was all added up, for each son there was 7 rd. 2 mk. 1 2/3 sk. of silver and for each daughter 3 rd. 4 mk. 5/6 sk. “The widower stated that out of fatherly love for his children he would make up each son’s inheritance to 10 rd. silver, give them 2 sheep, and when they reached 20 years of age, a set of home-woven clothes. Similarly, he increased each daughter’s inheritance to 8 rd. silver, 1 sheep, and in due course would pay for their weddings, just as he promised to give his young children a good and Christian upbringing to the best of his ability”. These extra gifts were outside the jurisdiction of the public trustee’s office.

The probate hearing found no debts attached to the farm. Everything was in order, and there were no arrears of royal tax. Thomas Thomassen continued his tenancy of the farm, promising “to uphold the terms of the copyholder agreement of 6th February 1813 in all respects”.

Kirsten Mogensdatter [4a] was, as already stated, from Ullits – Her parents were Mogens Andersen from Svingelbjerg and Bodil Christensd. from Skoue. They were married in Louens church, 16th September 1778. Their children were, apart from Kirsten, Christen born 26th August 1785, Anders born 6th September 1787, Niels born 21st May 1789 (More about Anders Mogensen later).

Gislum herred’s land register (B 48 C -205 folio 13) for 31st March 1865 tells us that tenant farmer Thomas Thomassen’s [second] wife, Ane Christensd. of Stistrup had died, and her widower retains undivided possession of the estate [i.e. had not paid out his wife’s inheritors]. The same register, folio 77 of 9th October 1866 records that pensioner Thomas Thomsen of Stistrup, 82 years old, had died, owning nothing.

By taking note of how often one comes across a man’s name, as valuer in connection with probate hearings, or as godfather in the church register, and seeing who are godparents to him and his wife’s children and so on, one can get a reasonably accurate impression of the man and wife’s standing in the village and parish. Thomas Thomassen was definitely a well-respected man, and he also had one of the big and good farms in Stistrup as tenant – more than 4 td. hartk [22000 sq. m.]. And he was able to write!

Unfortunately, when this good farm was sold by Gunderupgaard manor, it did not pass into the family’s ownership, even though one might think that Thomas Thomassen had plenty of sons, so one of them should have been able to take over the farm. But it was a question of money. Weienschenk, the owner of Gunderupgaard manor, was also short of money [and the farm was sold to the highest bidder].

Where Thomas Thomassen lived after giving up the farm on 19th February 1866 until his death on 23rd September of that year, is not known.

Thomas Thomsen's (Stistrup's) numerous children from his first marriage to Kirsten Mogensd. from Ullits (married in Ullits 24th January 1813, she died 2nd January 1827) were:

1. Christen born 10th October 1813

2. Morten [5] born 4th April 1815. He was fostered by his mother’s brother, Anders Mogensen of Dollerup, and later became the owner of Bjerregaarden in Foulum.

3. Mogens Christian born 3rd June 1816

4. Bodil Kirstine [6] born 8th October 1817. Married Anders Nielsen [6a] of Bjerregaarden.

5. Karen Marie born 2nd March 1819

6. Jens Christian born 19th September 1820

7. Bodil Marie [7] born 9th February 1822, married 5th June 1849 to Jens Chr. Christiansen [7a], Foulum. Died 9th June 1874 [the grandmother of the author and of Sonja Cole’s grandmother].

8. a stillborn child, 4th March 1825

9. Ane Kjirstine b. 6th December 1826, married 15th July 1854 to Jørgen Chr. Nielsen of Ertebolle, a farm worker on Gunderupgaard.

Ane Kjirstine was 6 weeks old when her mother died. Ane Kjirstine died in Grønnerup on 20th June 1911, and was buried at Strandby, the widow of smallholder Jørgen Chr. Nielsen of Ertebølle.

------------------------------

[page 36]

On 27th April 1848 Morten Thomsen had bought the farm in Dollerup from Anders Mogensen, his foster-father and mother’s brother. Its size was hartk. 3 td. 3 skp. 1 fdk. 1½ alb. [18900 sq. m.]. The price was 800 rd., plus the pension arrangements for Anders Mogensen, whose wife Karen Christensdatter had died 26th February 1850.

On 15th December 1856 farm-owner Anders Nielsen Bjerregaard sold his farm in Foulum to his brother-in-law Morten Thomsen, farm-owner from Dollerup. (Anders N. Bjerregaard was married to Morten’s sister Bodil Kirstine from Stistrup)

At almost the same time, 20th December 1856, Morten Thomsen sold his farm in Dollerup to parish clerk and farmer Mads Poulsen of Hestbaek mill for 2100 rd. Anders Mogensen retained his pension arrangement on the farm, now living with strangers.

One gets the impression that Anders Mogensen was a thoroughly honourable man, willing to grant a loan when family or friends were in need.

He died in Dollerup on 5th March 1867, and on 29th February 1868 many (hopefully happy) heirs met in Hobro for the probate hearing. My grandfather Jens Chr. Christiansen of Foulum was also there, he was married to a daughter of the deceased’s sister. In one place there were 13 signatures attached to the probate document, all written by the signatories [i.e. all 13 could write their own names]. But some of those attending were not so happy, those whose loans from Anders Mogensen were being called in.

The probate documents list the mortgages, private loans and gifts made by Anders Mogensen – it was a long list.

Smallholder Jen Pedersen in Gronnerup owedbut there was some doubt about the value of the claim, and they agreed to settle it in court. 400 rd.

Smallholder Jorgen Chr. Nielsen in Ertebolle (Ane Kjirstine’s husband) owed 300 rd.

Farmer Morten Jensen in Svingelbjerg owed 200 rd.

Graves Pedersen of Lundgaard in Alstrup owed 100 rd.

Smallholder Christian Laursen, Dollerup owed 400 rd.

Smallholder Christian Jensen, Dollerup owed 100 rd.

Mads Poulsen of Hestbaek owed 160 rd.

Anders Mogensen had left 100 rd. in his will to Poulline Christensd., a maid, and 150 rd. and all his clothes to Christen Mikkelsen of Dollerup. (He had lived with this couple in his last year.)

According to the probate record, the outstanding loans and interest all came in. The total estate was 1686 rd. 1 mk., with half going to Anders Mogensen’s family, and half to the family of his predeceased wife, Karen Christensdatter. On Anders Mogensen’s side there were numerous heirs – there were seven just from Thomas Thomassen’s children – with the result that they each received between 158 rd. and 22 rd., with a further 58 rd. to 5 rd. later.

It must be mentioned here that one of the heirs, Bodil Kirstine Thomasdatter, married to Anders Nielsen Bjerregaard, could not attend and claim her inheritance – they had emigrated to America as Mormons. But they had been in contact, and her inheritance was held until later.

------------------------------

[from Birthe Bjerregaard Byrjalsen’s history of Bjerregaarden, which appears on The Bjerregaard's website]

1857: The youngest daughter of Niels Nielsen Bjerregaard took possession of the farm. Her name was Eleonora Nielsdatter [5a] and she was born on 28th of June 1825. She was married to Morten Thomsen.

------------------------------

[Therefore the brother and sister Anders and Eleanora married the sister and brother Bodil Kirstine and Morten. So both the American and the Danish Bjerregaards are descended from Hans Pedersen, who was born in 1683!]

Notes on the text

Land taxes and land measurement

Land taxes were set based on the estimated productivity of the land. They were set in rye or barley, “hard corn”. The measures were originally volumes of grain, but the same words came to be used also as measures of land area. Both systems are still (confusingly!) in use today in rural areas. Thus for corn,

1 tønde hartkorn = 8 skæpper

1 skæpper = 4 fjerdingkar

1 fjerdingkar = 3 album

1 tønde = 139.12 litres

For land measurement, 1 tønde of land was the amount of land that could be sown with one tønde of corn. In 1688 the land measurement was fixed at 14,000 square alen, or 5,516.2 square metres (or 1.36 English acres).

In most cases in the original Danish text it is not clear whether hartkorn is being used as a measure of taxable value, or of area. Unless the text specifically refers to taxable value, such measurements have been taken to be measures of land area. The translation retains tønde (td.), skæpper (skp.), fjerdingkar (fdk.) and album (alb.) but also converts them to square metres, as follows:

1 tønde hartkorn is taken to be 5,516.2 sq m.,

1 skæpper ( = 1/8 tønde) 689.5 sq m.,

1 fjerdingkar ( = ¼ skæpper) 172.4 sq m.,

1 album ( = 1/3 fjerdingkar) 57.5 sq m.

Danish currency

The unit of currency was the rigsdaler (rd.)

1 rigsdaler = 6 marker

1 mark = 16 skillinger

No attempt has been made to convert any sums of money into modern currency: the effects of inflation make any such exercise meaningless.

Danish inheritance laws

When a man or woman died, if he/she had a spouse the spouse inherited half the estate, and the children inherited the rest. This could lead to the widow being forced to sell the family home or possessions to pay out the inheritance of the children. To avoid this, it was often agreed that the estate would not be settled until after the death of the surviving spouse.

Female children used only to inherit half as much as the male children, as can be seen from the probate hearing after the death of Thomas Thomassen’s first wife.

The Feudal system in Denmark

The feudal system existed in Denmark almost until the year 1800. The peasants were not allowed to leave the estates on which they were born, were forced to provide labour and some produce (measured in hartkorn) to the estate owners, were not allowed to buy the farms of which they were tenants, and could be punished by the estate owners.

Gradually the laws were relaxed, but even as late as 1733 the Stavnsbaandet law was passed, which tied all male peasants between the ages of 14 and 36 (later between 4 and 40) to remain on the estate on which they were born. The basis for this law was the growing exodus from the land, and the desire of the estate owners to secure cheap labour, although they tried to justify it on the grounds that it would ensure the availability of men for conscription into the army.

In 1788 the Stavnsbaandet law was repealed (Stavnsbaandets Oplosning), effectively abolishing the feudal system, although interim rules remained in force until 1800.

As Lars Sigvard Jensen says on page 7 of his history of the family:

 

“Big changes now began to occur in the conditions of the peasants. The abolition of the Stavnsbaandet, and the liberation of the peasantry which followed from it, led to many of the previously bound tenant farmers buying their farms from the big estate owners, and becoming freehold farm owners themselves. Around 1800 most of the peasant holdings belonging to the Hessel estate were sold, generally to their tenants.”
