About Joakim Cronman

Joakim Cronman (c1635-1703) aka Joachim Cronman, was a Colonel in the Swedish Army who died at the Neumünde castle in 1703. (b. circa 1635; Narva, Estonia - d. March 5, 1703; Neumünde, Riga, Latvia)



Joakim was the son of Hans Detterman Cronman (1590-after1645) aka Lord Hans Detterman Nobil Cronman, of Liveland, Latvia; and Ursula Kordes (1600-1675).


He had the following siblings: Wilhelm Cronman; Johan Cronman (1618-?); Vilhelm Cronman (c1617-1656); Anna Catharina Cronman (1620-?) who married Hans Christoffer Von Rohr I (1626-1700) who was killed in action in the Battle of Narva; Elisabeth Cronman (c1625-1687); Ursula Cronman; Frans Cronman; Fritz Cronman, an Adjutant General; Christina Cronman (c1628-1687) who married Joachim Georg Fredric von Rohr (c1629-1709) who died in the Battle of Narva.


Joakim married Lunetta Makeléer (1639-1693) on August 9 1657 or 1659 in Goteborg, Sweden. Lunetta was the daughter of John Hans Makeléer of Scotland who had moved to Sweden.


He was a Colonel at the Narva fortress starting in 1679. He was the Colonel for the Savolaks and Nyslott regiments in 1683. He became the Commandant of Neumünde and died on March 5, 1703.

Notes on Anna Catharina Cronman

She is listed in some sources as a sibling and in others as a daughter. This issue has not been resolved, there is most likely two of them that have been conflated. We have Anna Catharina Cronman (c1620-?) and Anna Catharina Cronman (c1660-?). One of them appears to have died in 1685.


Joakim Cronman (1638-1703) was the ninth great-grandfather of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).


The biography was updated by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) on October 5, 2009 which changed the cause of death to unknown. The list of siblings and children was updated using "Svenska adelns ättar-taflor" by Gabriel Anrep (1858). The most significant change was the moving the Anna Catharina Cronman who married Hans Christoffer Von Rohr, from a child to a sibling.
