About Eric Andersson


Eric Andersson was born in 1671 in Böle as the third son of the (in) famous Anders Knutsson and his wife Carin Ingelsdotter.

22 years old (year 1693) he married Brita Nilsdotter from Näset, whose father, Nils Nilsson, had died fourteen years earlier (in 1679). Widow Gunilla had then sold the homestead in Näset of neighbouring son Johan Persson.

This did not prevent Eric who, one year before he married Brita, started a dispute with Johan Pehrsson of Brita's parental homestead in Näset. Eric lost the case in district court, but contested and became the year after the owner of the homestead, after a Lagmansrättens court ruling.

A year after the wedding the couple's first child arrived (Karin Ersdotter) in what would eventually become a family of five children.

Eric Andersson came from a character-filled family (grandfather Knut Andersson was notorious, and known as Gam-Knut forward to the present day), as indicated by their frequent mention of things-books. Eric is also no exception, and even if he does not seem to have been the most bellicose, there's a lot to make a comment.

Bjöd pingsten 1700 sina bröder Elias och Ifvar hem till Näset.

Även brodern Knut kom “och överföll Elias och Ifvar med sådan olåt och trätan att de måste fly huset undan honom”. Knut beskyllde dem att under bytet efter fadern ha bestulit 24 riksdaler specie, vilket han ej kunde bevisa. Knut fick plikta för otidigheterna och beskyllningarna mot sina bröder.

Hade en dräng, Hindric Göranson, son till Göran Andersson och Elisabeth Pålsdotter, som gavs så vag spisning att denne dog av köld och utmattning nöst före jul 1695, 14 år gammal. Källa;
