  • Note*: He On March 16 1935, you could read in the newspaper "Folketidende for Ringsted, Sorø, and Haslev" the following: "Yesterday, an exhibit opened in the Industry Building in Copenhagen on the occasion of the 475th anniversary of the Saddler and Paperhanger Association."
    Among furniture and harnesses you can find old relics of the association, among other things a handful of letters-of-appointments and association letters from 4 generations of an old saddle maker family, Lønberg. The oldest of letter of appointment was given in Ringsted in 1785 for Mogens Peter Lønberg, our great great grandfather. The last was for Henrik Lønberg, who is of our family, but not our direct forefather. At the same exhibit was also shown a passport which was issued to Mogens Peter Lønberg, and signed by the Russian Empress Katharina II , and a diary for the period of 1778-1784 for M.P.L., who hence got to see a fair part of the world before he settled in Ringsted about 1781.
    A few days later you could in the same paper read more about M.P.L. He was born in Slagelse, and he went traveling to, among other places, Russia where he spent several years. At one time he was working in the imperial Palace, and Empress Katharina II was taken by the good-looking Dane with the curly hair. She demanded that he immediately should be ennobled and appointed to the court, but that didn't exactly suit M.P.L. The reason for his reluctance was that there seemed to be a tradition for that kind of gestures sooner or later ending with the receiver leaving the court a head shorter, so he opted to escape.

    I have, during the spring of 1994, been to the federal archive in Copenhagen and looked through their entire stock of old writings of the Saddler and Paperhanger Association. I found several appointment letters and diaries, but not for M.P.L. The ones exhibited in 1935 might be in the possession of someone in the Lønberg Family in an unknown place, supposedly in the part of the family who has carried on with the saddle maker craft.

    As mentioned earlier M.P.L was supposedly born in Slagelse, but I have not had time to verify it. He is first listed in the census for Ringsted Parish in 1787, where he is listed as Mogens Petersson, 29 years old, married first time to Anne Holmsdatter. At that time they have a 2-year-old son, Carl Amunde, who later will take over the Saddle Maker business. Later, they will have 5 more children, among them, our great grandfather, Erik. In the church book, where the oldest son is listed, the father is listed as M.P. Lyngberg, and later, in the 1790s he is listed as saddle maker Lønberg. Next time I "meet him" on the paper, at the 1801 census, his name is Lønberg and that continues. M.P. L does well in his business and is appointed Master Saddle Maker in 1796. I found a report from his acceptance to the Society of Masters, signed by him. I have asked for a copy of the acceptance proceedings, but I haven't yet received it. There is nothing special about the words in this document, but he signed it himself and when you see it I think you will agree that the writing looks a lot like our grandfathers.

    Following this I am missing some information. For instance, I do not know the educational background of our great grandfather, Erik. I find him first time in the census for Ringsted in 1834 where he is unmarried and works as a helper for Alcohol Distiller Monrad on the town square in Ringsted.

    But then something happens. On September 30 1840 he marries widow Kirsten Christiansdatter, and he moves in with her at her small place in Englerup, just outside Ringsted. Kirsten was married at age of17 to a widower, 47-year-old Frederik Gliese, who still had 3 of his 5 children living at home. She immediately became the stepmother for Maren, 11, Trine, 9, and Marie, 4 years old. Three years later, she has her first child with Frederik, Christian, and 2 years later, Ane Kathrine. After 9 years of marriage, her husband dies in February of 1840, and 2 weeks later she gives birth to a son, Hans.

    The day after her husband's death, three men from the probate court show up at her house, among them the county justice. They have come to evaluate the property in detail. We learn about the size and the value of the property and some interesting details about a red buggy, 2 black horses (4 and 18 years old), a black cow (6 years old), and 4 hens and a rooster, a bench, a pair of sheep shears, 5 bundles of unbroken hemp, etc. (I brought with me the material as far as I have been able to translate it. Both my husband, Ib, and I have spent many hours translating photocopies of gothic writing, so we welcome all the words you can give us.)

    So what does a widow do who still has four children to raise? Well, she finds a new provider, so Kirsten marries our great great grandfather, Erik Lønberg, on September 30 1840.
    They soon have more children, and in 1842, the most interesting one, our great grandfather Mogens Peter Lønberg is born. Being the oldest son, he is clearly named, as was customary at the time, after the father's father. Later comes August, Medea Kirstine, Mariane and Niels Peter. They continue to run the smallholding, and the children move away about when they turn 14.
    Erik dies in October 1857 after 17 years of marriage, and once again the probate court appears to evaluate the small home, though this time it is less thorough than the first time.

    The funny thing is that all the sons of Erik and Kirsten, Mogens, August, and Niels Peter move to Copenhagen. August operates a grocery store on Værnedams Street together with his wife, Maren Kirstine, and Niels Peter works as a Hall Porter. His first wife dies, and he then marries Karen who survives him.

    But back to Kirsten, who is once again a widow with 6 children under 18 years old.
    Apparently, she has a good relationship with her stepchildren from her first marriage, because there are several godparents to her and Erik's children who are from the Gliese family. A year after Erik's death, she marries for the third time, this time with Hans Pedersen who was about 10 years younger than her. We think that he also dies, so Kirsten is widowed a total of 3 times. It must have been a hard life, and I have really taken an interest in her life story. Actually, she has for a long period been a part of my daily life. Of all of them, she is the one I can best relate to. We will soon take a little trip to Englerup to see what the house looks like now. I can use my imagination, even if it has changed.

    Mogens Peter L. (our great grandfather) was sent to Ringsted when he is 14. He stayed with his master , Tailor Peter Møller in Pileborggade in the front house. The tailor is a widower with 7 children, the oldest 19 years old, and the youngest only 2. The poor man \ had to bring in his 74 year old mother-in-law in order to handle the household, which in addition to our great grandfather counted a bachelor tailor journeyman and two servants. I don't know how long he stayed there, but the next time I find him he is mentioned in the census in Copenhagen where it is written that he, together with his wife, Karen Marie Kristensen has moved to the city when she was 24, i.e. in 1866. They live in Adelsgade 115; it is the part that is closest to Nyboder. In 1885, they live in Nansensgade 40 B, and they live there until he dies in March 1900. I still haven't found out how long Karen Marie lived. I know he continued to make a living as a tailor, but I don't know where.

    M.P.L. and Karen Marie had 5 children: Ingeborg (married to Ola C.V.), Bertha, (born August 22, 1873), Carl Christian (born Dec. 25, 1876)(he is for us the most interesting), Anna (born ca. 1880 )(married to Henrik Heidenheim), and Marie, b. 1884, who emigrated to USA.

    Some of the people I have mentioned here I recognize from talking to my grandmother, Petra Lønberg, and from their get-togethers, in particular the Christmas day events at Trånegards Street. There were, among others, Ingeborg and her husband, O.C.V., Anna Heidenheim, and some people from grandmother's side that I haven't gotten to yet.

    If you are able to correct or add to what I have mentioned, I am very open to it. The best part about this hobby is that the more you give, the more you get.
