  • Notes 
    • Erik Larsen var den foerste i denne linie af familien Eriksen da alle hans boern havde navnet 'Eriksen' hvilket var den foerste gang i Danmark's historie at folk beholdt deres efternavn.

      Oldefar Erik Larsen 13.12.1802-28.4.1856 var 29, da han overtog Nejst og samtidig blev gift. Men inden da havde han fået to døtre med to forskellige kærester: Marie Eriksdatter, f.18.10.1826 og Mette Kirstine Eriksdatter, f.14.7.1827, d.17.8.1827

      Mette, hvis mor hed Jakobi Simonsdatter, døde som spæd, mens Marie voksede op på den anden Nejst-gård, som vi her kan kalde "Nejst II". Marie's mor hed Anne Jensdatter og var datter af Mariane Bertelsdatter og Jens Jakobsen, som først boede i Ø.Hassing, hvor Anne blev født i 1805, men derefter flyttede til "Nejst II". Anne mistede sin far, da hun var 10, og moderen giftede sig igen med den næste ejer af gården, Jens Sørensen.

      Erik Larsen har således kendt Anne som datter på nabogården, og de var henholdsvis 24 og 21, da de sammen fik barnet Marie. Anne Jensdatter døde 24 år gl. i 1829 af mæslinger, og den da 3 årige Marie voksede fortsat op hos mormoderen, som efter sin anden mands død i 1835 fortsatte som husholder for sine sønner på "Nejst II" og - efter Erik Larsen's sammenlægning af de to gårde omkring 1840-45 - levede på aftægt hos ham og hans kone, og stadig med Marie hos sig. Mormor Mariane døde 75 år gl. i 1852, og derefter flyttede Marie, som da var blevet 26, til Løgstør. Om hun giftede sig der, eller hvordan det iøvrigt gik hende, vides ikke. Men man kan jo konstatere, at de mænd, som nu i tre generationer havde fået børn udenfor ægteskab, sammen med deres åbenbart tolerante koner viste disse børn omsorg.

      Erik's kone var Anne Cathrine Jensdatter 24.11.1812-22.2.1897. Hun var fra Hellum sogn. Hendes forældre var ikke gift, men moderen Ane Christensdatter (1780-1847) havde fra 17 års alderen tjent hos faderen, aftægtsmand Jens Nielsen. Moderen kom forøvrigt til at bo hos datteren og sviger­Sønnen på Nejst i en årrække til sin død. Også nogle af Erik's søskende boede en tid på gården, og specielt den yngste bror Lars Andreas boede og arbejdede der i en halv snes år eller mere.

      Erik og Anne Cathrine fik seks børn, hvoraf de to første døde som små:


      Lars Eriksen, f.27.3.1833, d.5.3.1834
      Lars Eriksen, f.27.4.1835, d.12.4.1836
      Jens Eriksen, f.27.3.1837, d.17.2.1875
      Lars Peter Eriksen, f. 8.5.1840, d.28.1.1911
      Else Margrethe Eriksdatter, f.13.4.1844, d.21.6.1910
      Knud Christian Eriksen, f. 12.10.1846, d.2.2.1898

      Ligesom faderen blev Erik ikke så gammel. Han var kun 53, da han døde af "brystvattersot" (lunge-ødem) i 1856. Boet blev denne gang vurderet tredive gange højere end de 900 Rdl. 75 år tidligere. Som nævnt blev Erik på et tidspunkt mellem 1840-1845 ejer af begge Nejst-gårde, og det forklarer utvivlsomt sammen med udviklingen i konjunkturerne den betragtelige værdistigning. Boopgørelsen er ikke nær så detaljeret denne gang, så det er ikke muligt at sammenligne - ejheller at se, om den fine sølvsamling stadig var tilstede.

      Anne Cathrine var kun 43, da Erik døde, og halvandet år efter giftede hun sig igen med Thøger Peter Thomsen10.5.1828 - ? [fra Thise]. Han var således godt 15 år yngre end hun og blev i en alder af 29 stedfar for hendes fire børn, som da var mellem 11 og 20 år. At de var glade for ham, kan vi slutte af, at to af dem senere opkaldte børn efter ham. Han var forøvrigt en fjern slægtning til hendes afdøde mand.

      Han videreførte Nejst sammen med Anne Cathrine til hendes død 84 år gl. i 1897. Hendes ældste søn Jens var død alle­ rede i 1875, men han havde en datter, som et arstid eller to efter sin farmors [mors] død overtog Nejst sammen med sin mand. De havde på det tidspunkt tre børn og fik yderligere tre, mens de boede der.

      De solgte gården ud af slægten på et tidspunkt mellem 1905- 1910. Om Thøger da stadig levede, vides ikke. Det har ikke kunnet efterspores, hvor og hvornar han døde.

      Lars Peter Eriksen blev min farfar. Han blev gift med farmor Inger Marie Ottosdatter, og vi vender tilbage til dem og deres efterkommere, når vi har hørt både om farfars søskende og om farmors slægt. Men det skal her nævnes, at ved deres bryllup i december 1865 var Thøger Peter Thomsen forlover sammen med brudens far.
    • Erik Larsen was the origin of this line of the family Eriksen as all his children bore the name 'Eriksen' which was the first time in the history of Denmark when people kept their last name.

      Great Grandfather Erik Larsen 13.12.1802-28.4.1856 was 29 when he took over Nejst while married. But before that, he had two daughters with two different lovers: Marie Eriksdatter, f.18.10.1826 and Mette Kirstine Eriksdatter , f.14.7.1827 , d.17.8.1827

      Mette, whose mother's name Jakobi Simonsdatter, died in infancy, while Marie grew up on the other Nejst - farm, of which we can call" Nejst II". Marie's mother was Anne Jensdatter and was the daughter of Mariane Bertelsdatter and Jens Jakobsen, who first lived in Ø.Hassing where Anne was born in 1805 , but then moved on to " Nejst II " . Anne lost her father when she was 10, and her mother remarried the next owner of the farm, Jens Sorensen.

      Erik Larsen had known Anne, the daughter of a neighboring farm, and they were 24 and 21 when they had the child ‘Marie’. Anne Jensdatter died at the age of 24 years old in 1829 of measles, and then 3 -year-old Marie continued and grew up with her grandmother, who after her second husband's death in 1835, continued as steward of her sons on " Nejst II " and after Erik Larsen merged the two farms around 1840-45, he lived on the farm as a pensioner with his wife, and Marie lived with her Grandmother Mariane, who died at 75 years old in 1852 , at which time Marie, who then was 26, moved to Loegstoer. Whether she ever married or how it incidentally went with her is not known. But you can see that the men, for three generations had children out of wedlock and their apparently tolerant wives took these children into their care.

      Erik’s wife was Anne Cathrine Jensdatter 24.11.1812-22.2.1897. She was from Hellum parish. Her parents were not married, but her mother Ane Christensensttter (1780-1847) had been with the father, since she was 17 years old and the father, a pensioner was Jens Nielsen. The mother came and lived for several years with her daughter and son in-law on Nejst, until her death. Also, some of Erik’s siblings lived a time on the farm, especially the youngest brother Lars Andreas lived and worked there for a decade or more.

      Eric and Anne Cathrine had six children, of whom the first two died in infancy :

      Lars Eriksen, f.27.3.1833 , d.5.3.1834
      Lars Eriksen, f.27.4.1835 , d.12.4.1836
      Jens Eriksen, f.27.3.1837 , d.17.2.1875
      Lars Peter Eriksen, born 05.08.1840 , d.28.1.1911
      Else Margrethe Eriksdatter , f.13.4.1844 , d.21.6.1910
      Knud Christian Eriksen , born 10.12.1846 , d.2.2.1898

      Like his father, Erik did not live to an old age. He was only 53 when he died of pulmonary edema in 1856. The estate was at this time evaluated thirty times higher than the 900 Rdl . 75 years earlier. As mentioned, Erik sometime between 1840-1845owned both Nejst farms, and the explanation is undoubtedly linked to economic trends which accounts for the significant increase in value. Declaration of estate is not nearly as detailed at that time, so it is not possible to compare – nor to see if the fine silver collection was still present.

      Anne Cathrine was only 43 when Erik died and within a half year she remarried with Thøger Peter Thomsen 05.10.1828 - ? [from Thise]. He was a good 15 years younger than she and at the age of 29 he became the stepfather to her four children, who were then between 11 and 20 years. That they loved him, we can conclude because two of them later named children after him. He was incidentally a remote relative of her late husband [Erik Larsen].

      He continued on Nejst with Anne Cathrine until her death in 1897 at the age of 84 years old. Her eldest son Jens had already died in 1875, but her daughter who within one or two years after her grandmother's [ Mother’s] death took over Nejst with her husband. They had at that time three children and had three more, while they lived there.

      They sold the family farm at some point between1905-1910. It is not known what happened to Thøger or where he lived. It has also not been traced when and where he died.

      Lars Peter Eriksen was my grandfather. He married grandmother Inger Marie Ottosdatter, and we will get back to them and their descendants, when we have heard both the grandfather's siblings and grandmother's generation. It should be mentioned that at their wedding in December 1865, that Thøger Peter Thomsen was best man along with the bride's father.
