About Tim // Timothy // Timen Lulofsson Stidden

Dr. Timen Stiddem was probably born at Hammel in Medelpad, Sweden. He was living in Gothenburg, Sweden in the 1630s. He was no doubt anxious to learn about the new world being colonized by the Swedish, known as "New Sweden" (present day Delaware). Dr. Stiddem signed on as a ship's barber-surgeon for a voyage to New Sweden. Dr. Stiddem sailed four times for North America (arriving three times). He went to New Sweden the first time in 1638 aboard the ship called the "KALMAR NYCKEL", the first of Sweden's attempts to establish a colony in New Sweden. The "KALMAR NYCKEL" landed at the "Rocks" or Fort Christina (present day Wilmington, Delaware) on March 29, 1638.

    Dr. Stiddem returned to Sweden and married.  His first wife and children were murdered near Puerto Rico in 1649 during the ill-fated Swedish voyage to America aboard the "KATT." He returned to Sweden to remarry and sail again with his wife on Sweden's Tenth Expedition aboard the "ORN" (Eagle), which arrived in New Sweden on May 22, 1654.  This was Dr. Timen Stiddem's last trip from his homeland, Sweden.  He stayed and settled in New Sweden at Fort Christina, or what was to become Wilmington, Delaware.
    
    In 1680, following his second wife's death,  he married Christina Ollesdotter, the widow of Wallraven Janssen de Vos.  Christina arrived in New Sweden as an orphan, her parents having died at sea.  (Ref. Peter Craig)
    
    Dr. Timen Stiddem (Timothy Stidham) was a prominent citizen and doctor in Wilmington.  He is recorded in history as the first physician in Delaware (SOURCE: J. Thomas Scharf, History of Delaware, p. 471).

In 1683, Timen Stiddem and his sons pledged allegiance to the King and England and obedience to William Penn.

1) Tim eller Timothy Stidden el Stidham (Man kan inte frigöra sig från tanken att han kan vara identisk med Lijloff Stiddens styvson Tim, se ovan, som tagit styvfaderns namn.) Han uppträder första gången i mantalslängden i tolfte roten 1646 med 2 mantal, alltså förmodligen gift. Den 25.3.1646 uppbjöds ”Herr Svens gård” av ”Timon von Stidden” (huseköpspenning 4½ d smt). Säljaren var identisk med Herr Sven Andrae Phriarius i Surteby, kollega i Gbg 1636, död 1656. Timon bodde sedan i elfte roten i anslutning till Bengt skomakare. 1647–48 som Tim balber med 2 och 1649 med 3 mantal. Han omtalas som ”Tinne Stidden”, när ett av hans barn begravdes i Kristine kyrka 1651. Han emigrerade till New Sweden första gången 1638, andra gången 1649 och tredje gången 1654. Han var verksam som barberare, den tidens benämning för barberare. 1662 har märkligt nog Thimoteus barberare (tillfälligt) återkommit och bor hos Zacharias Kock rote 4.
