About Cecilia Hansdotter

Cecilia Hansdotter


The origins of the egg can be brought back on a parchment letter from 1386 when a Jöns Swinshwow bought the two farms Höjen and Stenbjörnsarvet (now Stämnarvet) in Torsångs parish (now Stora Kopparbergs parish). The text is partly altered, possibly in connection with the letter being shown up in the autumn tea in Sundborn in 1673 by, among others, the mountain man Olof Nilsson at Höjen. However, surveys of the document indicate that from the very beginning, there was a pig head.

The mountaineer at Kopparberget, Hans Jönsson (mentioned 1434–1439), as well as his brother Dan Jönsson, the vicar of Hedemora parish 1405–1427, brought a pig's head in his weapon.

Hans Jönsson was the father of Jöns Hansson, a mountain master at Kopparberget 1450 and, according to a later assignment from Rasmus Ludvigsson, will have lived on the hill. Another son was Jeppe Hansson, who signed up for Risholn (then in Svärdsjö, later Sundborn's parish). From his son Hans Jeppesson in Risholn (dead before 1540) and his daughter, Svinhufvud in Westergötland leads his ancestry.

Hans Jönsson's second daughter Cecilia was married to Magnus Henriksson Svart. Their son mountain bailiff at Kopparberget Nils Månsson, in turn, became the father of Måns Nilsson (Svinhufvud). From his daughter-in-law Per Hanson, the noble family of Svinhufvud stems from Qvalstad. Per Hansson's brother the ruler Albrekt Hansson (dead 1631) in Aspeboda has left a lot of descendants in Dalarna and neighboring landscapes.

Gudlög Hansdotter, daughter of Hans Jönsson (mentioned 1434–1439), through his marriage with Jeppe Henriksson (Simla) in Karlborn, Svärdsjö parish, was requesting noble and Countess Ekeblad.

The rock scribe Hans Jönsson was the father of the priests Daniel and Timme Jönsson, who when they were enrolled at Rostock University in 1465 and 1466 were the first to use the surname Svinhufvud as a surname. Their sister-in-law, Västeråsbiskopen Otto Svinhufvud, also took up the name when he was enrolled in 1480 at Rostock University.
