Vassals in the family

Around 1695, a man named Laurids Nielsen Lensmand ("Vassal") was born in Gimsing parish. A vassal was a royally appointed manager of a vassalry, and in 1662 the title was replaced by the word "prefect," as the vassalries were sorted into counties. Therefore, he probably kept the nickname from ancestors with the fine profession. I know only two things about him: He had the son Niels Laursen Lensmand around 1722 and died himself 1767 in Gimsing. In two generations, we kept all the fine epithet, and although I have not yet found the feudals in our family, I will briefly write about their position: they enjoyed a personal subsistence vassalry farm. They were responsible for managing all royal duties and rights in the county and greeting the king when he came to visit. Our family was a part of Lundenæs Vassalry. There were actually rules for how many nights the king could stay, and thereafter he had to pay for his stay himself. Vassals should manage the royal property and self-owner peasants. He should also keep records of such. He also had to make permanent accommodation of royal nobles and warriors, when there was no need for them at court or at war. The vassal hired bailiffs and perceived themselves most often as the punitive authority.They had a special duty to defend the peasants and freeholders and to defend the castle and the vassalry militarily. He therefore had to find troops for the royal army.

Niels married Ane Jensdatter also from Gimsing and had four sons. In 1801 he lived on his son Jens' farm and had married another woman, with whom he had no heirs. He died 1809 in Gimsinghoved, and we follow his son Laurids Nielsen Lensmand born in 1762. In 1787 he worked in Nørgaard town in Gimsing as a laborer, but was additionally a rider. He married Johanne Christensdatter Nørgaard 1795 in Nørgaard town.They had three children together, and the nickname disappeared from history ...
