This is one of the longest narratives on an estate inventory I have
seen. Can someone please translate the highlights, ie wife, children, other family
members. Birth records for this parish don’t go back quite far enough for me to get the
1742 the 7th Sep... estate inventory and inheritance division after
deceased Anders Bengtsson in Håkantorp... died 2 Apr, survived by the
widow Bengta Sånnesdotter(??) with ten children, five sons and five
daughters, of the sons 3 legally competent and 2 not legally competent.
The oldest son Bengt has tenant farm in Spännarbygget and he has this
received what should fall to him after his deceased father.
The second son Swän 24 years old and legally competent and likewise the
3rd son Pär 22 years old.
4th son Måns on [his] 12th year for whom the son-in-law Jäppa Månsson in
Trörnarp(?)... assumed the guardianship.
And also their youngest son Anders 9 years old, has the son-in-law
Anders Persson in Grafwared(?) Torup(?) parish... assumed the guardianship.
The oldest daughter Pärnilla, married to Jäppa Månsson in Trörnarp(?)
has as dowry received while the father lived, as much as can later [be
expected?] the under-age siblings as father- and mother-inheritance.
In the same way has the second daughter Olu(?) who is married to Anders
Pärsson in Grafwared(?) received, which can correspond to the previous
daughter Pärnilla, only remains a horse that she still can expect.
And also the reservation that if the widow ??? herself and keeps the
farm, that the 2 under-age sons Måns and Anders and also the 3 under-age
daughters Bengta, Kierstina, and Sesella, receives from the widow what
they in the future can expect, as
much as can correspond to the already married siblings.
In the same way should happen with the 2 of age unmarried sons Swän and
Pär when they and the later children [are with the mother?] and help
with the work on the farm.
For the 3rd daughter Bengta 15 years old and 4th daughter Kiärstina on
[her] 13th year, has the widow assumed the guardianship, for the 5th and
youngest daughter Sesella, the oldest son Bengt Andersson in
Spännarbygget [to thoroughly check??] the one who assumes the
guardianship for the child.
The widow was in accordance with the inheritance section 9th chapter 7th
paragraph seriously admonished to ??? report the estate after her
deceased husband in a way that ??? ??? ???, which she avowed in the
As appraisers were called ???-man Torsten Jönsson in Spjutseröd(??) and
[tenant farmer on noble-owned land] Påhl Jerkasson(??) in Lilla
Gunderstorp(?), and was found the estate as follows namely.
