About Erik Bothvidsson

In an email message dated 4 Sep 2007 Jens Anker sent the following: (Translation of letter of 10 January, 1985 from Jan Fredrik Anker Solem)

Else Marie Holm...says that Olof Eriksson (father of Erich Olofsson Ancker) cannot be seen to have taken out "borgerskap" (license to become a merchant) in Göteborg, and this indicates that his father has already belonged to the city's "borgerskap". No doubt, one did not need to apply for "borgerskap" if one's father already had "borgerskap"

Erik Bothvidsson, Olof's hypothetical father, is mentioned in 1639 as a "borger"(citizen, licenced merchant) in Göteborg, He is spoken of as a "murmester" (master bricklayer)...
