About Aug Ede HAVGAARD


Jan Neelmeyer 5/19/2014 om 12:04 nm.

Managers of Aug Ede Havgard,

I am contacting you about this profile: Aug Ede HAVGAARD

I am of Danish origin and when I first saw the name Pieter van Meerhof coming from Copenhagen, Denmark, I translated it into Peter Havgaard. Not Havgard. I would like to know how sure you are about your translation of van Meerrhof into Havgard? The Havgaard family is still alive and living in Denmark and some other places.

Yours Sincerely,

Jan Neelmeyer

Aug Ede Havgaard

Dear Jan,

The surname's spelling was supplied by a R. De Villiers Pienaar in his family register for the Pelzer (various spellings) of South Africa. He gave the spelling as Havgard. Does the spelling of the surname Havgard compared to Havgaard mean that there are two different families or could it simply be a variation in spelling? I would be interested to know.

Also, it is wonderful to hear there are still Havgaard family alive today. It would be great to be able to join the family trees.

Dear Y. Drost

The word "gaard" means "farm" or "estate". There is no word "gard" in Danish that I can find. The translation into Dutch of Havgaard into van Meerhof fits neatly, meaning "from Estate by the Sea". The name "Pieter" is translated from "Peter" but more likely old Danish "Peder" and there is a record of a Peder Havgaard around this time. I shall investigate further, but I do believe that Havgard is wrong. So far there is no developed Havgaard family tree that I can find so far but they are very active in Facebook and Linked in. I hav not made contact yet but may do so after I have more information on the Havgaard family.

Just for your interest, my surname Neelmeyer comes from "Neel Manager" of Neelhof, an estate on the banks of the river Neel, near Rinteln in Germany. I have been there. Our family name is about 600 years old.

Dear Jan,

With your explanation it does appear that the correct spelling should be Havgaard and not Havgard. I will add your messages to the profile and correct the name on Geni and in my source.

It would be great to expand on Peder Havgaard's family tree and find living relatives.

Thank you for the information.
