About Anders Larson Dalbo

Anders Larsson Dalbo from Dalsland, Sweden who had been sent to the New Sweden colony on the Kalmar Nyckel in 1640 as punishment for a minor crime. After seven years of servitude, he secured employment with the New Sweden company as a provost (sheriff) on 1 Nov. 1647 at a wage of 15 guilders per month and served in this capacity until Printz's departure in 1653. In 1654 he became a freeman. Two years later, when the Swedes were permitted to select their own government by the Dutch, Dalbo was named lieutenant of the Swedish militia. He made his home in Kingsessing, but died before 1671, when the first English census identified Widow Dalbo as the head of household there.

provost-marshal Probably from Dalbo on the island of Gothland, or he may have come from Dalarna. He was a tobacco planter in 1644. On November 1, 1647, he was hired by Printz to serve among the soldiers as provost-marshal at the rate of 6 R.D. a month. He served until November 15, 1648, when he left. He entered the service again about December 15, 1650.
