History of Bengt Andersson Skantz & Kristina Johansdotter Rosenschantz family

Carl was born at Femsjö parish and the place where Elmhult. Femsjö is located in the southwest part of Småland along the border of Halland. The father was Bengt Andersson and modern Christina Rosenschantz. When church records in Femsjö from this time are well conducted, it became as a highway back in time.Carl's grandfather born in Denmark let us go back to 1644 on May 26 at the Koldingshus Castle in Jutland.Then was born Johan Carl, who would become the father of Carl's mother, Christina Rosenschantz.The father of Johan Carl was future Commandant and Länshövding in Landskrona County, Jörgen Gÿnter. The mother's name was Brigitta Wolff Jörgen Gÿnter began as a private soldier in the wars of Gustavus Adolphus and advanced over the years to the Colonel with his own Regiment.He was knighted on 14 July 1652, and then took the name Rosenschantz.

Grandfather, Johan Carl was born during the so-called Torstensson war when the Swedes during the thirty years ' war made a detour and invaded Denmark from the South.You could say he was born to a soldier, for already in 1649 and 1650 years rolls (5-6 years old?!), he is listed as a second lieutenant in his father's company.1660, he was wounded at Västerbottens regemente, where his father was Gynter Rosenschantz

Regimental Commander. After his mother's death in september 1659, and the death of his father on 31 March 1662 was Johan Carl left alone with their underage siblings. In a letter to the King, he wants to get the money that his father had in outstanding wages of 1662, to give his father a decent burial.Some money from the Regency, it becomes not as evidenced by a letter later in the article. Self-sufficient person in Landskrona, Sweden during the time of the funeral, he gets the help of Per hammarsköld (Governor-elect), who in a letter to the Governor general requesting that Johan Carl get his salary for the month of May and allowances for subsistence. Johan Carl is faithfully Västerbotten Regiment until 3 August 1675, when he received the Royal power of Attorney being Lieutenant under Lieutenant Colonel von Rappolts Squadron and Salt Peter's Jews.He rose to the rank of Captain and finished his military career as regementsväbel

Johan Carl marries Maria Chatarina Svinhuvfud August 21 1666, he married Maria Chatarina Svinhufvud in Mulseryd, located in the northern part of Småland. The timing corresponds well with the gift of 18 mark appearing in Mulseryds kyrkobok as a gift of the right J C Rosenschantz.After the wedding, the couple settled on the farm Haque in Laxarby parish in Dalsland and älvsborg County, which is confirmed in 1668 where Laxarbys kyrkobok "Wälborne Rosenschantz paid the 1 d 4 Penny" in church tax. Probably their first child was born there. After 1668, there will be a gap until 1677

When the family showed up in Femsjö in small country and at seat farm Yaböke.Yaböke and Gullnubb farm cottage was a donation to Johan Carl's wife's grandfather Per Jonsson 9 november 1624 by King Gustav II Adolf. Ownership can also be gleaned by the register of the lengths.Yaböke seat located on farm Road North seen from Femsjö Church. In Femsjö Herdaminne says the following to read: "1681

The parish priest complained that neglected religious services, rejects the communicants, because they did not make him their communion day labor, taken for high likstod, m.m. Complaints were raised by a poor nobleman, J C Rosenschantz, that for manslaughter has been denied the sacrament. At an inspection in July of the same year, requested the Assembly to be vicar RID, since he put to considerable annoyance.Among other things, he had allowed the work to be performed on the last big böndag both before and after the service. The congregation was admonished to conciliation with the priest, who now for their offences had been suspended for half a year. If the priest Bononius told incidentally that during war danger must hold the worship service at Avjeberget, on the road to London ".Maybe it was for the aforementioned manslaughter, but it may also be due to Karl XI reduction,
