I {Inger Qvarnström} have not found much on Måns Essing, but I have found a summons issued by him as follows:  The discharged Assistant, Måns Essing, filed a claim against Olof Hansson of Dufved.  It concerns a cow that wife {Agnis Nilsdotter}, had loaned out with her husband's permission and in his absence.  It claimed that in December of last year Olof Hansson and his wife received a three-year-old heifer calf for milking, which they could do after calving.  Furthermore, because that same heifer does not now exist, the plaintiffs want to receive a similar animal in its place, which is a new heifer.   Olof Hansson agrees that his wife had, in his absence but with his knowledge, made a contract with Essing’s wife concerning the referenced heifer.  They agreed upon this contract, but last June the heifer had gone into the river and drowned.  Besides that, the heifer had an internal illness according to written testimony from witnesses on the ninth of the month.  However, the defendant admits that his wife had received the heifer for the conditions stated above, and that he did not disapprove of her actions and he again agrees to replace the heifer. 


Now the arrangement for giving over the heifer was an agreement between the wives of Mårten Essing and Olof Hansson and it can’t be considered anything but a loan. According to Chapter 1 § in 11, handwritten, this was not a mistake. Now there is very little that Olof Hansson can be blamed for, since he never, while the heifer lived, had reserved the right to be without responsibility for dangerous events and without this reservation had to guard the cattle from damage and accidents. He also had not disclosed his knowledge of the heifer’s internal illness, according to his own witnesses. Therefore, the County Court found that to be fair, Olof Hansson and his wife should return a good animal, equal to what Måns Essing and his wife provided, and they also have to pay the summons cost and legal fees with one Riksdaler in silver currency.

Agnis was the oldest of the siblings.  She was born on February 6, and was baptized on February 23, 1690.  She was born in Hamre.  The godparents at her baptism were:


·       Pehr Pehrsson of Wik, Pehr Jonsson of Dufve, wife Gertru Larsdotter of Hambre and wife Anna Pehrsdotter of Stadh


Her sister Anna was born on January 27, and was baptized on February 19, 1693.  The godparents were:

·       Henrik Pehrsson of Swedie

·       Per Olsson of Dufve,

·       H. Anna Nilsdotter of Björnäng and his wife {Lisbet Olsdotter of Loche}

The other sister Gertru was born on December 18, and was baptized on December 22, 1695.  The godparents were:

·       Olof Nilsson of Sunnet

·       Olof Ersson of Ramberg and his wife {Ingri Pehrsdotter of Mörviken} and

·       Karin Jonsdotter of Tegom.

Agnis Nilsdotter’s daughter {Kerstin Randklef} was married on November 18, 1739 to Olof Persson Edberg who was born in 1711 and died in 1788.  They lived in Edsåsen, Undersåker, and had three children named Petrus, Agnis, and Esten.

Måns Randklef later married Göhlin Fastesdotter, and they had the following children:

·       Hans    born on May 22, 1715

·       Faste   born on January 1, 1718

·       Märta  born on June 27, 1720

·       Ingrid born on February 19, 1723

·       Magdalena      born on April 14, 1725

They were all born in Undersåker and lived in Mo.

After that, Måns {Randklef} married Ingrid Olofsdotter, who was then a widow.  

The wedding took place on November 13, 1748. Their daughter {Märta} married a farmhand from Alsen {Jöns Christensson} on September 26, 1737. Their daughter {Magdalena} married a soldier {Jöns Hallberg} on November 16, 1746.  

Magdalena died on February 20, 1809 in Fanbyn, Rödön at the age of 84 years.

When Måns Randklef died, he was called Magnus.  He died on October 27, 1749 in Mo, Undersåker.  

Måns took over the homestead of his parents, as shown in the following records.

It was resolved to establish the legal Inheritance Distribution of 3¼ taxable acres on the homestead of the parents of County Citizen Måns Hansson Randklef.  The Court Sessions were held in Undersåker Parish where he lived after his father’s death, but is it going to be worthwhile?  A brother and brother-in-law are shown to have already received a full settlement with a payment negotiated on the 29th of the month.  In it, they themselves acknowledge having sold their share of their father’s homestead to Måns Randklef for an assessed value of 95 Riksdaler 4 Specie.  They had collected their share afterwards and had been given a receipt.
