9th. Generation

Now it is my 6 x great grandparents, 9th. geration. There are 256 people in this part, but I have not found all of them. It is hard to find people that far back because written documents are missing and incorrect. To this point I have found 11 people divided into 5 couples and 1 single person. I’ll search the best I can depending on the time I have to locate the rest.

On my father’s side of this line I have found

 Christen Sørensen whom was a tailor. He was born before 1675 in Nølev area. He married Ane Madsdatter from the same area and she was also born before 1675. The dates are calculated from how old they were when they had children. At this time I don’t know if there was children born before the son whom I found in the church records. I’m still searching. These people are the only ones that I have found on my father’s side, so I’ll spring over to the Norwegian and Swedish part on my mother’s side and I’ll start with:

Sven i Landbyn was born 1668 in Norra Fågelås, Skaraborg Len, Sweden. He married Elisabet approx. 1690. They got three children

Anders Håkonsen was born 1665 in Brårup, Sanseryd, Jønkøbing Len, Sweden, he was married beføre 1698, but the identity of the wife is unknown.

Lars Kempe was ringer in Ausås and Støvelstrup parish. He is born 1666 in Ausås, Skåne, Sweden. lars Kempe died "honorble and respected 24 o'clock 56 year and 14 days old in Ausås. He was married two times, first time was February 21th 1697 in Brandstad, with Maria de Fine Christoffersdotter, born 1669 in brandstad, Skåne, Sweden After the son Erich was born, she became sick and was still sick until she died in 1711. Lars kempe was married second time 1712 with Dorothea Jønsdotter Berg, born 1687 and died 1732. In the first mariage there was one child and in second mariage there was two childs.

Lucas Gadd Johanson is born 1679 in Tystberga, Sødermanland Len, Sweden. He was ringer in Kopp parish. His signature and handwritning is into the churchbooks from 1712. Later he became ringer in Norra Åkapp parish, becauce he had complain for bad and low payment in Kopp. He was married November 8th 1708 in Kopp and he died April 13th 1757 in Norra Åkapp, Skåne, Sweden. His wife was Ingrid Hoff Hansdatter, born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1680 and she died 1760 in Norra Åkapp, Skåne Sweden.

Gunder Pedersen Krogstadenget was born in 1717 in Skogn. Krogstadenget is a farm under the main farm Krogstad. He was married to Kirstine Michaelsdatter also from Skogn. I have no information on her as of yet. She must of been born around 1727.

Johan Pedersen Rustgaardsvalet is also from Skogn. He was born around 1720. Around 1750 he married Hellebord Bandosdatter, whom I have calculated to of been born around 1720.

Ole Olsen Ree is from around 1715 and Unde Brenne around the same time. She came from one of the Brenne farms and he must of had Ree farm. Both are from Skogn.

Peder Arntsen Vordal was born on Vang farm in Åsen. He came to Vordal in Åsen around 1720. He was born in 1698 and died in 1771. In 1765 he freely gave his farm to one of his sons. In 1763 he came around summer time and showed his skin of a full grown bear which he had shot. A good presentation from that time with and old rifle which had a short shooting distance, an old trigger and wasn’t very safe. Peder Vordal married shortly after he came to the farm with Ingeborg Torsteinsdatter Vanberg. She was born in Frosta around 1700.

Søren Anderson Reppeskroen. I do know a lot much about him. The Reppeskroen farm was an old manor which lied close to the road where “Geitryggen” erected. The road is now gone, but at that time there laid a little donated house with connection to the manor for the travelling people whom came by. Most of them were travelling by foot because wagons with wheels first came in the end of the 1800’s. Up till then the wagons had iron wheels which slid on the grass. In the land register the place was called Reppe mellom. He and his wife were descendants to that line we call Mæla ætten. Søren was born in Reppeskroen in Laanke in 1775 and as an adult he bought the farm Utistun Mæla, one of the large farms under Mæla group and it lied in Stjødal. Utistun Mæla, up to that time, was a rented – copyhold farm and he had the deed for 12 fields from Mæla farm in 1783. The fable says that when they moved to Mæla he only owned a horse, a sled and a large brewing vat. It was in the winter he moved from Lannke to Stjørdal, a distance of around 10 kilometers and he had the younger children in the brewing vat on the sled, while he and his wife and the bigger children travelling on the side of the sled. The children came to be called Mæla until he owned his own farm. On the 29th, of September 1749 he married the daughter from Big Rødde. Her name was Marit Nilsdatter Rødde and she had been married before and was a widow. From her to of our largest tree line, that is to say the tree line which is Mæla ætten and her first marriage there is Røkke (Rykkja), which counts more known people, from modern time there is financial adviser Kjell Inge Røkke and in the past there is further more Peder Moe, a teacher whom made local history in Rindal and other places, also teacher and reformist Ole Vig, helped to make the Norwegian school system become one, at that time a modern and satisfactory school system. In both parts of ætten there were people voted into the government in Oslo. In one of the tree lines we ran into the tree line of Wessel from Trondheim and therefore related to Peder Tordenskjold. From Marit Nilsdatter Rødde we can follow three tree lines back to Niels Jensen, Jens Nilsen (brother to Anders Dregset) and end with Nils Furan. Marit was born in 1722 on Vestre Rødde farm, which was part of the Rødde farms, a rich mans manor where there were was plenty of everything, which the Swedish and the state also had eyes for. The Swedes took many booty and stock for their solders, when the travelled along the decline to the war against the Norwegians.  The state took stock for their solders, both to people and horses. Solders, both Norwegians and Swedish also took the boats that were on the farms because they had to cross the rivers which was on their way.
