The Ancestrys Ancestry - Pierre la Cour

Pierre la Cour

The genus La Cour has been in Denmark through approx. 300 years. Pierre la Cour was born in 1716, probably in Germany by captive parents. He came to Denmark as quite young, and thus I am the 6th generation after Pierre la Cour. He is referred to in some places by the middle name Dornonville, which, however, I can not find anywhere.

In the fall of 1877, the author Frederik Barfod (1811 - 1896) issued a "little pencil drawing" by Lauritz Ulrik la Cour and Ellen Kirstine Poulsen - performed according to the childrens wish for distribution among relatives and friends. After Lauritzs father, cand.theol Jørgen la Cours early death in 1809, only 41 years old, married his mother, Lotte Guldberg, to the father of Frederik Barfod, prosecutor H. P. Barfod. He was a youth of Jørgen la Cour.

With these close family relationships and friendship as a background, Frederik Barfod has started his book with a story about Pierre la Cour. I hardly know 135 years after, get a more true account of my ancestor. Therefore, it is reproduced directly on the following pages. The story can be read here, but it is only in danish.

As the name suggests, the genus must leave Cour (Dornonville de la Cour) originally French, but the father of the Danish lines ancestor must have left France either as is commonly said because the ban after the abolition of the Nantic Edict (1685) was missing The freedom of faith he urgently needed or what has also been felt because ban had entered into political relations that became dangerous for his civil security. There is yet another amount of La Courer in France, even after a French naval officer has notified the captain of the fleet Dornonville de la Cour, in Burgundy people who bear the name Dornonville de la Cour, but despite several random clashes, it has never been possible to investigate, In what proportion do they belong to the Danish line.

What first name it emigrated to Cour bar did not know, but only that he was married to a Marie Fouzillac who was French of burden just like himself, although her parents lived in Haile. Probably these were previously emigrated for the same reason as he. A family story wants to know that Cour was "ministers" (~: minister) and lived in a larger country house close to Paris. When he suddenly saw this surrounded by soldiers, he fled with his young wife through the garden, put her On a donkey and escaped lucky with her to Germany, where she soon gave birth to that son to the world who became an ancestor of the Danish line, and where they lived until shortly afterwards, less dangerous times arose for them.

Of these two parents, the Danish lines were born Pierre la Cour in the small town of Köpenick on the Spree River in Mittelmarek-Brandenburg on February 22, 1716. However, he was only eight months old when both his parents returned to France and Since we know absolutely nothing about them or their destiny. He never saw them again, nor heard from them. Pierre, however, became his grandparents in Haile, Saxony and was raised by them. In his seventh year he arrived in the citys Latin School, went there for 4 years and was 11 years old in his 4th lesson when his grandparents (1728) moved to Leipzig where he followed them. Here, however, he does not think he has been in Latin school, but in addition to writing and writing, he enjoyed teaching music. When his grandparents moved to Berlin in 1730, he was again in Latin school, but did not reach a student because, just as he should have entered the 5th lesson, he was called to Denmark.

It was Christiane Dorthea v. Rhedern, widow of Major Henrik de Lasson to Åkjær, who received the 16-year-old boy from Berlin to teach her 6-year-old son Frederik de Lasson in French. At Åkjær he was for 4 years, but then came to his wifes recommendation to Ørslevkloster, where he should teach the Lieutenant Henrik Frederik in french.

Here he was for 6 years until 1743, but came the following year as "language master" to Mrs Berregårds brother, Mathias de Lasson at Bjørnsholm, where he was 4 years old, to his former student, chamberman Berregaard, in 1747 called him As his handwriter to Copenhagen. This position lasted for 3 years, but in 1750 he became Berregårds riding fighter at Stårupgård with goods and next year at Ørslevkloster and Strandet. All three farms are located in the northern part of Fjende herred, which forms a The peninsula of Limfjorden, surrounded by Skive and Hjarbæk Fjorde, belonged to all Berregård. Of the childrens birth, it appears that LaCour has lived at Stårupgård during the first season, then a couple of years at Ørslevkloster and for a couple of years at Bådsgård, a breeding farm in The northern end of the peninsula, which also belonged to Berregård.

However, as early as 1753, LaCour had undertaken to lease the beach, and this was reiterated by Kammerherreinde Berregaards written promise and ratification of 23/2 1758, but only 1/3 1759 ended the contract. It was on favorable terms that LaCour received this farm in lease. In 1737 it had been leased (to Niels Christensen Winehel) for an annual charge of 280 rd., 1751 (to Niels Quistgård) for 350 rd. In the first year, 300 rld. In the following, while the lease rate for LaCours was set at 200 rd. The contract, which is stored in the archives of Viborg, the first and last pages of which are published in Faesimile are printed in the annexes of this book.

On "Strandet", LaCour then sat for the rest of his life, through 16-17 years, but unfortunately they are the means to get to know him who is preserved, few and sparse. As far as is known, no single letter or other has been written by himself. In the county of Hald County, there are some letters he has sent, but he has made a few contributions to learning about his personality. Some features can be obtained from the Pierre LaCours left-overs of his family, which in his time was stored at Frk. Pauline Worm, and of whom I have a copy, like from the "Testimonium", which is readily related to the funeral, and which is also included in the annexes to this book. However, we will seek from the information that we have left to Give us an idea of ​​the circumstances in which he lived, the home in which he was a housewife, and the life that unfolded.

"Strandet" is in Ørum parish and is mentioned at the time that Cour lived there, as "a little dog free farmyard, whose name is that it borders the Limfjord beach. There has been a foundation house on the farm, which has long since been broken down; Now the building is a beautiful piece of timber, but with thatched roof. The farm has been inhabited by Juuler, Fruser, Sehesteder and several noble families. The farm holds birth feathers and is inhabited by Peter La Cour, to whom it has been leased on a lifetime. Hovedgård takst 19 barrels 3 skiepper 1 fierdiugkar 1 album. Bøndergods 208 barrels 4 skies 1 fierdingkar 1 album. Mouth cold 1 barrel of 2 quarters. Ten to 26 barrels of 4 skies.

The current main building on the beach carries over the entrance of the year 1794, is thus built after la Courss death, but the housing he had available has not been small. It consisted of: - the kitchen, the dining room, the chamber of the chamber, the beer cellar, the brewery, the stew, the school floor, the tailors room, etc. - of the living room, the office (in the shift called "The Blessed Chamber of the Chamber"), the grand chamber, the southern guest chamber, Sleeping room, nursery room and the chamber of the girls, and all the rooms have apparently been well-stocked with furniture. In the living room there appeared to be a shift in the heater, such as an iron-baking stove, 1 box with 4 drawers and twisted feet, 1 egee hatolle with 3 drawers underneath, 1 double slab, 1 dino on cross foot and 1 blue-painted table with drawer underneath which the widow has his towel. 2 chairs of 2 oak with canvas covers, 1 rider slide, 6 pcs .. rugged chairs and 2 old chairs with Woolly cover. On the walls there were 5 paintings, including 2 imaginative Christ crowns on the cross and his mother, 3 green-painted wooden balls and 1 hanging rack, and finally there was a percussion In this living room, the few books owned by LaCour and, in addition to the Bible in folio from 1589 and C., were stored. 5. Danish law in octav from 1750 consisted only of 13-14 mainly French and German books. Of these were apparently the most valuable 3 bind in octav: Traité de Laverette de la Religion, considered to be 1 rdl. Otherwise, there were only minor writings of philosophical and religious nature (Fénélons Oeuvres Philosophiques in Octav, Le Philosophe de sanssouci, Fontenelles Oeuvres Diverse, trendy tomer in a non-titled magazine, Richters Erkentnisz des Menschen) and finally, in addition to some others, 1 German hymn and bean book in duodecimo with silver braces and a loose silver buckle thereby. Peder LaCour has, after this, said that he did not judge a books man; On the other hand, he obviously enjoyed his outdoor life, not least hunting. It testifies, among other things, A. The 13 hailers who had their place in the living room, in addition to several other hunting journals. But it was not just the living room, he was wearing what was probably heard in his eyes for the best of a wall; In "the chamber of the Blessed Man" are also mentioned gays and other objects that belong to the craftsmanship. And that it has really been one of his main pleasures to go hunting, you get a certain impression of some lines in it below Rewritten letter to justice de Lindenpalm from his penultimate year in which he complains that he has not yet been fully restored, "which does not make me feel that I could not, as I had imagined this, come to this year Tirsbæk and enlighten me once again with the dust hunt before I die. "

Beside the chase he has also enjoyed music at times. Some spinet, the piano of that time, was not on the beach in La Courss time, but in the living room there was 1 violin with locked futteral and 1 dino violin with bow or violin the gambe called, while the futteral of this last was in his own chamber where It might have its real place. We could imagine that the violin is brought into the living room because, perhaps, one of his last days of living - has let the tones sound in the family circle.

But besides what I have mentioned before of the bohave in the living room, this also has the room where the silverware and glass are stored. Here we take care of a. 2 silver spoons with the letters PL and the year 1751, which therefore probably stemmed from Peder LaCours wedding with his first wife, also 6 new silver spoons with the letters PLM 5. H. and the year 1762, two old silver spoons ,, name in a row and Year 1705 ", 1 serving spoon, 1 sugar shaker with the letters CHB island. P. and the year 1751, 1 sølvtomling, 6 teaspoons of sugar rod in addition to different second and glassware Tvende cups with lids, 1 glass mug with tin lid, 16, Paragraphs .. differente tip glass, 5 frimurergiasl and a whole lot more.

If we turn to the other rooms on Stranded, we find a large living room 1 blue painted chest of drawers on par with silver plated moldings and one larger inlaid chest of drawers on foot, which was retained a fairly plentiful supply of tablecloths, napkins, sheets, pillowcases and towels.

The bedroom contained one green painted poster bedstead with 4 .. green home made hangings and 2 .. capes, which was one fur counterpane, 2 brandgulstribede bolsterunderdyner, a few blågarns sheets, two woolen olmerdugs main quilts and also one post bed with brown home made hangings and one jacket.

In the guest chambers (the southern and the north) there were also furniture of different kinds, but only mentioned that the first of them contained a number of pictures: "12 King paintings of the Oldenburg tribe, 2 queen paintings, 2nd paintings in gilded frames, Must be Count Frijs and his Countess, 6 paintings in frame, 6 cupcovers without frame. " It is clear that LaCour has preferred hunting weapons as wall murals rather than pictures, which have therefore largely been referred to guest chambers. However, this list of what was found in the individual rooms on the Beach in LaCours time gives us only a slight impression of the surroundings in which he and his household lived.

Who was this one now? Throughout the shift we can see what strangers people had in the bread in the last year he lived, and something similar may have been the case in previous years. In addition to the family, which consisted of husband, wife and 6 children living at home, of whom the oldest, Niels, were years and learned the countrys fathers father, while the youngest, Jørgen, was 8 years old, lived on the beach: Stiosus Mons Curtz , Which has undoubtedly been the teacher of the smallest of the children. In addition, a ladder (Niels Svenningsen), a ladder (Lars Jacobsen), a smoker (Knud), a sheep hunter (Peder), a maid (Johanne), a cookie (Dorthe) and a chicken poop (the little Dorthe). The actual groundwork and, incidentally, much else was, at that time, carried out by the hover farmers, about who is spoken in the lease agreement. The salary received by the inhabitants of the Strand was, in comparison with todays circumstances, only small. A year was Monsr Curtz 16 rdl., Ladefogden 10 rdl. In addition to the spirits in the same time 1 rdl. 2 pennies, Competitor 6 rdl. 4 dime, in addition spirits money in rdl. 2, cowman 6 rdl. 4 dime, fårerøgteren (for 1/2 year) 1 rdl 3 shilling, the maid 8 rdl, the cookie 5 rdl. 2 shilling and chicken poin 4 rdl. But now the housekeeper himself. How was he and how did he look? The last question can be answered in some way as, as you know, an oil painting of him is preserved. After judging, he seems to have been a beautiful man with noble moves. And there is reason to think he was a brave, godless and god-fearing man. The few statements that we have preserved by him in the aforementioned list of his family, and the mention that becomes him in the testimony, suggests that.

Throughout the shift we can learn to know his clothes and, although we will maintain that it is only half way when it is said that it is the clothes that make the man, it may be interesting to see someone how he went dressed. His high-end suits have undoubtedly been the one called 1 violet dress, outside [consisting of dress, vest and pants dress draped lightly lined with blue chagrin and vest with white silk, assessed for 12 rdl. In addition to this there are 1 violet Dress with silk buttons after the clothes outside, for which the value was set to 5 rdl, but furthermore he also had 1 red carmoisin dress and west, turned with gilded buttons in, 1 blue dress dress and west, turned with camels hair buttons In and 1 black dress and vest, outside. When traveling, he carried 1 green dresss travel suit with fox skins or 1 gray dito of home-made clothes with calongs. No less than 8 wigs are listed, the two of which are buccal. On his head, he apparently carried a cap either of velvet or cloth.

The family on the beach was obviously associated with many of the best-loved people of the region; It turns out, among other things, A. Through those who were chosen as parents for children. Possibly they have taken a quite big deal, and this in connection with the numerous family has probably meant that the economic corps did not belong to the best. Certainly, furniture and furnishings of different kinds have not been put in place, a common practice, since it was not known at the time that savings banks were used, but the regular loans he had to make and the settlement of the estate showed that he Have had various financial difficulties to cope with. Although accomplished in French and German, he apparently learned Danish very well and wrote it as well as most Danish in that time. This is evident from p. A. Of the letters mentioned before and found in the book.

In the fall of 1774, Peder LaCour became overwhelmed by some "partly painful cases." However, he found some weeks of relief but died already on 14 March 1775, only twenty days over the age of fifty.

The day after LaCours death, as usual, the registration took place in his place of residence, and there were now shifts in 18 and 19 April 1775, 18th, 1775, 9th May, 1776, 28th April, 1777, 15th. And July 16, 1777, July 1778, December 11, 1778, and finally the estate ended June 29, 1779. (The estates handling in the switching protocol fills 91 pages).

He was married twice. First time at Ørslevkloster July 13, 1751 with Margrethe Susanne Hertzberg. She was the daughter of Niels Jensen Hertzberg (born in Vråd 1693, student from Hjørring 1711, theol.kand. 1716; Pers. Chap. In Ejds prefecture (Nordfjord) 1719, in Viborg Nørresogn 1732 and in Finnås 1744, death in Bergen 17 / 10 1764 and Dorte Cathrine Harboe (died 01.01.1743) and was probably born at Daviken on August 20, 1720. She was baptized in Viborg, 06.10.1737, when her father had been transferred to the Gråbrødre church there as a priest. To have been a teacher at estate owner Søren Kjærulf, whose daughter Andrea Kirstine got married to Hjelmstjerne, and then with chambermaid Berregård at Ørslevkloster. She must have been very much loved by her students and their parents. She died on the beach February 24, 1763 ,, 42 years 6 months 4 days. "Her husband writes in her aforementioned genealogy records: ,, Last year L: 1763 d. Feb. 24, a day of sorrow for me, God pleased to call my wife at 6 am and her With a blissful death To admit to her glorious empire when she was placed in Ørum church on March 3 at a grave funeral where her body rested for a glorious resurrection and her soul, which I, with the power and help of Jesus, shall be on their day rests Already in the arms of God ".

She gave her husband eight children: four sons and four daughters.

2) at Frusholt August 26, 1763 Christiane Frederikke Nohr (Bernt Nohr, Court painter at Frijsenborg, and Ane Cathrine Olesdatter). Her father was born in Wismar, but when this city in the period from 1648-1803, except for the few years 1675-79, belonged to the Swedish crown, he was born as a Swedish underwriter; As a young man, he came to Copenhagen, where he first married the legs (Ellen Bente) Bentsdatter, who gave birth to him a daughter angel Nohr and died c. 1712, then with Ane Cathrine Olesdatter, who became the mother of Christiane Frederikke. In 1716, the married couple Nohr was taken to Jutland, where the father-in-law became a court painter at Frijsenborg. After Bernt Nohrs death, the night between 23 and 24 July 1739, his widow married the 19/12 1740 painter Hans Groesen, but died 7 years after, 2/9 1747, 55 years old.

About Christiane Frederikke we have only a few information. She was born in the painting house at Frijsenborg and baptized in Hammel Church on April 29, 1727, carried by Count Frijs, while Count Frijs and Mayor Bentzon were witnesses. When her father died, she stayed at home and stayed there.

The shift after him shows a total value of the estate of 136 rdl. 4 mk. 10 skill., While the debt size was 256 rdl. 3 mk. 6 skill., So nothing came to the kids. When 02.10.1747 was changed after her mother, there was a division between the surviving man and her 184 rdl. 5 mk. 2 skill. But the half of the daughter should remain in the estate as long as they lived together; The father-in-law should not answer interest for her but provide her with everything and in due course let her be following the things her belonging, which are not registered and assessed, namely: 1 big new closet, 1 draw chest on one foot , 1 new battle bench, in new bed, 1 box and 1 black dito, 2 new shelves, 1 cabinet, 1 tablecloth, 1 pyramid and 2 wicker cushions and 2 pillows, 6 tint plates, 5 dishes, 1 pair of brass candle holders, 1 tinned copper berry, 1 small tea table and 1 iron fad, but should she be caused to have her bread elsewhere, she is obliged to send her money by ordinary money. "03.03.1760 an auction was held in Hinnerup Broegård in connection with Madam Kirsten Nimbs death 30.11.1759, and on this occasion, Christiane Nohr purchased in a non-syslog without lock for 3 ground (estimated at 12.8k.) And is listed as belonging to Frisenvold, Ørum parish. In 1761, she sailed Rhodes Daughter Ane Margrete to baptism in Sal church and 1/4 1763 she carried her daughters daughter to the baptism as well. She has probably stayed at Frusholt (now Ormstrup), located in Sal Sogn, in the house of Hans Thansen Rosborg, a son of the best known gentleman Hans Hansen Rosborg, known for his controversy and his many processes. Her wedding was celebrated at Frusholt, and Madam War Counselor Rosborg from Frusholt carried the first child, Bernt, over baptism.

1771 Pag. 85b exists: Da Seign. Peder Lakhur from Stranden and Jomfr. Christiana Nohr at Frusholt, copulated, so promise we signed that nothing is on any of the sides that this marriage promises. Kand hindre, d. August 26, 1763

per. Cancellie advice Lerche from Ørslev Closter

Sir. Poul Ambdrup, Priest to Cobberup.

Pierre LaCour writes in the above-mentioned list of his family: "On August 26, 1763, I felt the comfort of merciful God when he chose me to wife Christiane Frederica Nohr. Our wedding was held frustrated. We came home with each other on the 30th of this, and hope for the help of God to live together in unity and honor, as God knows to be patient and comfortable, welcoming thankfully what blessing Gods gracious providence will treat us, asking the Almighty for the necessary patience To the sorrow and adversity he finds to impose on us "

After her husbands death, she became likely to live on the beach if she could live there until the farm burned just 1775. The owner, Hans Henrik Jørgensen, gave her free housing for 2 years (until 1/5 1777) with fires as well as feed and grass For two cows and 10 sheep, plus 12 barrels of rye, 12 barrels of barley and 10 rdl. In cash annually, as well as the use of a portion of the garden. Where she later went on, she was unaware until she finally lived with her youngest son in Odder, whose house she died on 30 July 1801. Odder Church Book says she was 77 years, born in 1724, which, however, must be wrong, When she was baptized as of 29 April 1727. She could only have been 74 at her death.

She gave her husband two sons.
