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

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

      Mette, hvis mor hed Jakobi Simonsdatter, døde som spæd, mens Marievoksede op på den anden Nejst-gård, som vi her kan kalde "Nejst II".Marie's mor hed Anne Jensdatter og var datter af Mariane Bertelsdatterog Jens Jakobsen, som først boede i Ø.Hassing, hvor Anne blev født i1805, men derefter flyttede til "Nejst II". Anne mistede sin far, da hunvar 10, og moderen giftede sig igen med den næste ejer af gården, JensSørensen.

      Erik Larsen har således kendt Anne som datter på nabogården, og de varhenholdsvis 24 og 21, da de sammen fik barnet Marie. Anne Jensdatterdøde 24 år gl. i 1829 af mæslinger, og den da 3 årige Marie voksedefortsat op hos mormoderen, som efter sin anden mands død i 1835fortsatte som husholder for sine sønner på "Nejst II" og - efter ErikLarsen's sammenlægning af de to gårde omkring 1840-45 - levede på aftægthos ham og hans kone, og stadig med Marie hos sig. Mormor Mariane døde75 år gl. i 1852, og derefter flyttede Marie, som da var blevet 26, tilLøgstør. Om hun giftede sig der, eller hvordan det iøvrigt gik hende,vides ikke. Men man kan jo konstatere, at de mænd, som nu i tregenerationer havde fået børn udenfor ægteskab, sammen med deres åbenbarttolerante koner viste disse børn omsorg.

      Erik's kone var Anne Cathrine Jensdatter 24.11.1812-22.2.1897. Hun varfra Hellum sogn. Hendes forældre var ikke gift, men moderen AneChristensdatter (1780-1847) havde fra 17 års alderen tjent hos faderen,aftægtsmand Jens Nielsen. Moderen kom forøvrigt til at bo hos datterenog sviger­Sønnen på Nejst i en årrække til sin død. Også nogle afErik's søskende boede en tid på gården, og specielt den yngste bror LarsAndreas 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 vurderettredive gange højere end de 900 Rdl. 75 år tidligere. Som nævnt blevErik på et tidspunkt mellem 1840-1845 ejer af begge Nejst-gårde, og detforklarer utvivlsomt sammen med udviklingen i konjunkturerne denbetragtelige værdistigning. Boopgørelsen er ikke nær så detaljeret dennegang, så det er ikke muligt at sammenligne - ejheller at se, om den finesølvsamling stadig var tilstede.

      Anne Cathrine var kun 43, da Erik døde, og halvandet år efter giftedehun sig igen med Thøger Peter Thomsen10.5.1828 - ? [fra Thise]. Han varsåledes godt 15 år yngre end hun og blev i en alder af 29 stedfar forhendes fire børn, som da var mellem 11 og 20 år. At de var glade forham, kan vi slutte af, at to af dem senere opkaldte børn efter ham. Hanvar 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 havdeen datter, som et arstid eller to efter sin farmors [mors] død overtogNejst sammen med sin mand. De havde på det tidspunkt tre børn og fikyderligere tre, mens de boede der.

      De solgte gården ud af slægten på et tidspunkt mellem 1905- 1910. OmThøger 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 MarieOttosdatter, og vi vender tilbage til dem og deres efterkommere, når vihar hørt både om farfars søskende og om farmors slægt. Men det skalher nævnes, at ved deres bryllup i december 1865 var Thøger PeterThomsen forlover sammen med brudens far.
    • Erik Larsen was the origin of this line of the family Eriksen as all hischildren bore the name 'Eriksen' which was the first time in the historyof Denmark when people kept their last name.

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

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

      Erik Larsen had known Anne, the daughter of a neighboring farm, and theywere 24 and 21 when they had the child ‘Marie’. Anne Jensdatter died atthe age of 24 years old in 1829 of measles, and then 3 -year-old Mariecontinued and grew up with her grandmother, who after her secondhusband'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 onthe farm as a pensioner with his wife, and Marie lived with herGrandmother Mariane, who died at 75 years old in 1852 , at which timeMarie, who then was 26, moved to Loegstoer. Whether she ever married orhow it incidentally went with her is not known. But you can see that themen, for three generations had children out of wedlock and theirapparently tolerant wives took these children into their care.

      Erik’s wife was Anne Cathrine Jensdatter 24.11.1812-22.2.1897. She wasfrom Hellum parish. Her parents were not married, but her mother AneChristensensttter (1780-1847) had been with the father, since she was 17years old and the father, a pensioner was Jens Nielsen. The mother cameand 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 fora decade or more.

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

      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 hedied of pulmonary edema in 1856. The estate was at this time evaluatedthirty times higher than the 900 Rdl . 75 years earlier. As mentioned,Erik sometime between 1840-1845owned both Nejst farms, and theexplanation is undoubtedly linked to economic trends which accounts forthe significant increase in value. Declaration of estate is not nearlyas detailed at that time, so it is not possible to compare – nor to seeif the fine silver collection was still present.

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

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

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

      Lars Peter Eriksen was my grandfather. He married grandmother IngerMarie Ottosdatter, and we will get back to them and their descendants,when we have heard both the grandfather's siblings and grandmother'sgeneration. It should be mentioned that at their wedding in December1865, that Thøger Peter Thomsen was best man along with the bride'sfather.
