Persson Family

Anders Persson

Birth: 22 March 1797, at Löfnäs, Ludgo, Södermanland, Sweden. Löfnäs is also spelled Lövnäs.

Baptism: 25 March 1797 in Ludgo, Södermanland, Sweden

Father: Per Eriksson

Mother: Maria Persdotter

Married: Anna Lovisa Lundman on 26 December 1820, in Lästringe, Södermanland, Sweden

Children: Occupation: Tenant farmer (torpare). We can trace Anders' progression in farming from the Husförhörslängd and descriptions on his children's birth records. Aged 14 he starts as a servant boy at a nearby farm, Stocktorp, for a couple of years. He spends the next couple of years back at home and then at 17 he starts as a farmhand at Skinnartorp,and then at Spelmanstorp. In 1820, at the time of his marriage, Anders was a farmhand (drängen) on the farm Baggbohl, in Lästringe. He married Anna Lundman from the farm Långsjötorp, in Lästringe. The couple evidently continued to live on Längsjötorp - Maria is born there in 1822, and Anders is listed only as a "son-in-law"! (måg). The next year Anders is a farmhand (dräng) on Grundshammar, and by 1826, a foreman (rättaren) on Gärdesta. In 1829 he is listed as a farmer (bonde) on Stora Näs (also called Torpestanäs), in Ludgo parish, although this status is probably in error, as the Husförhörslängd still shows him as a farmhand. He is shown as a  farmhand (dräng) on the same farm in 1831. In 1833 and 1835, he is back as a foreman on Sophiælund, and finally, in 1835, he gets land of his own, albeit rented, as a tenant farmer (torpare) on Charlottenlund, Ludgo. In 1842, at the birth of his son  Johan, we see him again as a farmhand, on Säby farm in Svärta parish. From 1847, he is a "housed farmhand" at Ekeby until his death in 1861. In 1861, the Husförhörslängd notes that Anders is a workhouse inmate.

Death: 4 May 1861, at Ekeby, Runtuna, Södermanland, Sweden, aged 64 years 1 month and 6 days. At his death he is listed as being given poor relief (fattighjonet).

Burial: 10 May 1861, in Runtuna, Södermanland, Sweden
