Inger’s note on A5 Brita Essing: She was baptized on June 9, 1731.  She lived in Huså and Semlan.

Inger’s note on S Samuel Ridderberg: He was a copper refinery Worker by occupation.

Inger’s note on B2 Magnus Ridderberg:  He was buried on February 5, 1769?

Samuel was the first to inhabit company Farm No. 181 in the Village of Huså.  He had it for 10 to 12 years.

It was later occupied by his brother Johan with a similar arrangement with Company Farm No. 179 for 15 years. 

Samuel’s brother Hans was a copper refinery Worker and he later moved on the farm to live.  The widow of Hans lived there until 1858.

This farm was assessed at being able to feed 2 cows, 5 sheep and 5 goats, and ¾ barrel of grain and 1 ½ barrels of potatoes were planted.

Later the family {________?} lived on Company Farm No. 30.  This farm was occupied in order by: 

·       It was first cleared of branches and roots by the Miner Erik Johansson Bock in about 1744.  He lived there until about 1765. 

·       Then by Jonas Hedman,

·       Then by Eric Sullen,

·       Then by Samuel and his family,

·       Then by Lars Larsson,

·       Then by Jon Mahlberg,

·       Then by Johan Skjutare until 1771,

·       Then by Joseph Bergqvist until 1784,

·       Then by Miner Nils Essing,

·       Then by Nils Hjerpe until 1849,

·       Then by the former Company Manager {Per Löding} who was then the Sheriff of the Gustav Copper Mining Company.

·       Then by the Manager of Bjelke Copper Mining Company {Johan Petter Lalander} from 1853 until 1878.

Nils Essing was compensated for the following improvements to the farm in 1812:

 

This farm can feed 2 cows, 6 sheep and 6 goats and ¾ of a barrel of grain and 3¾ barrels of potatoes were planted each year. 

 

Agreement

  The Company Miners and Metalworkers in Semlan had a meeting in 1765 because of some unknown conflict with the Company management.  Most of the Semlan employees went to work in Norway that year.  Erik Elg left for Norway with his two fully-grown sons {Johan and Samuel Ridderberg} and with smith worker Olof Tjernström. 

Samuel Ridderberg had a larceny upon his conscience and he remained in Norway when the other workers came back to work because he preferred to stay away from the long arms of the Swedish Law.
