The Royal Line of Kristina Olsdotter Lindblad
of Järnboås and Nora, Västmanland, Örebro län, Sweden
Descendant of King Frederick I of Denmark & Poet Anna Ovena Hoyer


Krutgumma HinnersmoraKristina Olsdotter Lindblad whose short name was Stina (first name also written Christina in her family bible primer) is also referred to with surname Hindersson or Hinnerson and in other places referred to as "Hinnersmora" or "i Kinnermora" by family members. These are obviously variations of her married surname Henricksson. She is listed with husband Erik and family in Åshytte and Skottorp, Skotthytte as Stina Olsdotter-Lindblad. Stina worked for some years in the gunpowder and nitroglycerine factories at Gyttorp and fortunately was not at work on the day of one of the worst explosions at the plant in history.  In her later years, she worked at home in Gyttorp in what was an early version of today's home employment doing routine piece work like assemblies, bulk mailings and telemarketing.  She weighed out and packaged portions of gunpowder which was manufactured locally and utilized for making different sizes of ammunition and explosives. The factory would deliver a bulk supply of gunpowder periodically to her home and she would portion it out for periodic pickup and was paid according to how many pieces she produced. She lived alone as a widow in a small cottage in Finntorp near Gyttorp until her death.

Hinnersmora was referred to lovingly as the krutgumma of Gyttorp or Nora by her relatives and descendants.  In modern times the term is widely used to refer to a tough and independent older lady.  Stina Lindblad was both literally a "krutgumma" by profession as a long term employee of Gyttorp's Krutbruk and by the modern meaning of the term.

Kristina Olsdotter Lindblad's ancestry has been described briefly in the article Min Släkt På Fädernet by Kyrkoadjunkt Martin Lindblad in Nora Stads Och Bergslags Tidning No. 43, 13 April 1962.  Kristina Olsdotter Lindblad’s known ancestry is one of over 400 years within primarily the area Järnboås in Nora commun in Västmanland, Örebro län, Sweden and secondarily the area around Nora village known as Nora Bergsförs where she lived until her death. One exception was a marriage to an immigrant descendant of King Frederick I of Denmark from Schlesvig-Holstein whose family immigrated into the region in the late 17th century from northern Germany.

Peter Olsson Lindblad. According to parish records 1785-1790, in 1787, 14 year old Petter Olsson moved to Nora and took a room with "kopparslagermäster" (coppersmith) Mathias Arelius and wife Christina Dorothea von Gerdes (b. 1732 in Vassaland (Vassland), Järnboås, m. 1786). The von Gerdes family with which Christina was listed prior to her marriage was on the same page in church records as the Chrisma Hansson family which included his daughter Catherina Hansdotter (Peter Olsson's mother) in Järnboås. Vassland is just east of Järnboås village. This contact was probably the connection that ended in young Petter Olsson's apprenticeship in Nora. In the period 1791-1795 in Nora, Petter Olsson took up the surname Lindblad and was listed as a "larling" or apprentice. He spent 8 years with the Arelius family in Nora and in 1795 moved back to his home in Järnboås (Lindesby) as a skilled coppersmith. Although his work was in great demand, when his "bergsman" father Olaf Olsson died in 1797, he took over control or ownership of the "stora bondgård," a large farm, estate or region and also became a "bergsman." A "bergsman" was an owner or administrator of a larger area of small farms and forest and generally provided the local community either charcoal or iron ore or both (or access to it) and received a tax break for the service.

After Kristina Andersdotter Ramberg's death, Peter Lindblad married in 1822 Anna Hansdotter (b. 7 Oct 1782, Nya Grängshyttan, Hjulsjö; d. 4 May 1843, Västra Yxsjötorp, Lindesby rote, Järnboås).  They had a son Israel (b. 1825).

Peter Olsson Lindblad's father Olaf Olsson was born 27 Dec 1736 in Björnbekstorp.  He died 8 Mar 1797 in Lindesby, Lindesby Rote, Järnboås.  His baptism was witnessed on 30 Dec 1736 by Nils Svensson from Vilenstorp and Israel Ericsson from Lindesby together with wife and maid (pigan) Anna Ericsdotter from Lindesby.  In later records, Olof was listed as a stepson of Jonas Olsson (b. 1702 in Axberg, d. 1782) whom his mother, Katarina Jacobsdotter (b. 1697 in Ramsberg), later married after the death of his father. His birth father was Olaf Svensson (b. 1686; d. 10 Sep 1741 at Björnbäckstorp, Järnboås).

Peter Olsson Lindblad's mother Katarina Hansdotter was born in 1735 and died in 1809 in Järnboås.  Her father was bergsman Chrisma Hansson.

After Erik Ramberg's death in 1736, Katarina Malmberg married Anders Andersson (1708-1776) in 1737.  Anders was born at Björksjön, Hjulsjö and died at Göranstorp, Järnboås rote, Järnboås, he was a "masmästare" by trade.  The ancestry of Erik Ramberg and origin of the stable Ramberg surname is currently unknown to this author.  The name was possibly adopted from the place name Ramsberg which is northeast of the Järnboås area in Västmanland, Örebro län.

Parish clerk (klockare) Olof Matsson Malmberg was apparently the origin of the stable surname Malmberg.  He was born about 1660 in Nora stadsförs, Nora Bergsförs and died at Järnboås.  He is buried in the Järnboås Church Cemetery.  He was the son of Mattes Olofsson and Margaretha.  They had children Kristina (d. 1729 in Nora) and Margaretha (abt 1670 Nora -1715 Västra Sund, Nora Bergsförs) in addition to Olof.

Born about 1630 Mora Järnbruk, Dunker, Södermanlands län, Sweden
Died 8 Jun 1707 Grythyttan, Västmanland, Örebro län, Sweden

Children:  Katarina (1649-1711); Herman (abt 1650-1692); Frans Conrad (1652-abt 1728); Elisabet (1654-abt 1715); Christina (abt 1661-1736); Maria (abt 1663-1743); Anna (1668-1669); Rebecka (1672-1672); Beata (1673-1741); Sophia (1674-1744)

Catherina Fassings's father "bruksförvaltare" François (Frans) Fassin was born in Liège, Belgium and died in 1653 in Mora Järnbruk, Dunker, Södermanlands län where daughter Catherina was born.  He married Anna Hero in 1630 in Åker, Jönköpings län (south of Jönköping).  Anna was born before 1614 and died after 1670 in  Mora Järnbruk, Dunker.  Records indicate that she was buried in the "Dunkers kyrka under predikstolen."  Anna Hero's father was Serva Henrot (b. bef 1690 in Theux, Belgium; d. bef 1656 in Åker).  Serva Henrot's father (name unknown) was living near Theux, Belgium in 1585.  In addition to Catherina, Frans Fassin and Anna Hero had children Johann (b. abt 1632); female (b. 1634); Magdalena (abt 1636-1655); two children that died young (1639, 1640); Roloff (1642-1701); Maria (1644-1730); Frans (1646-1668); Joris (Georg) (abt 1651-1691).

The emigration of Christian Hoyer of Schlesvig-Holstein to Sweden coincides with the reign of King Karl X Gustav of Sweden in which alliances were made with royalty of Holstein-Gottorp and the historic home of the Hoyer family.   King Karl X married  Hedvig Eleanor of Hostein-Gottorp.  He used the Kiel region for an assembly point for his armies in conflicts with areas of Denmark, Germany and other places in the area of Europe.  This likely resulted in favorable contacts and opportunities including the position of "bruksarrendator" or leaseholder or overseer of a mine, mill or factory for Christina Hoyer.  Christian Hoyer's brother, Fredrich Herman Hoyer (1621-1698) also emigrated to Sweden and was an "ålderstyrman" who died in Ladugårdslandet, Stockholm.  It is likely that Christian Hoyer emigrated first to the area of Södermanlands län where he met Belgian wife Catherina Fassin.

Christian and Catherina Fassing Hoyer were clearly active residents and citizens of the Bergslag area around Hällefors where they settled and died.   According to Hällefors church records Christian was buried under the chapel threshold.  The wooden threshold and a heavy wooden door with it still is in the church today and is thought to be from the original church.  The couple donated a golden chandelier that hangs in the current church on which their names are inscribed:

Marike Degener

ChildGeseke Fredericks (abt 1493-abt 1535)

King Frederick I of DenmarkAfter fathering a child with "piga" (maid) Catherina in Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein about 1491 named Catherina Fredericks (abt 1491-1534) and Geseke Fredericks with Marike Degener in about 1493 in Husum, Schleswig-Holstein, King Frederick I officially married 14 year old Anna von Brandenburg Hohenzollern (1487-1514) on 10 Apr 1502.  They had children, the future King of Denmark, Christian III (1503-1559) and Dorothea (1504-1547).  In 1518 in Kiel, Frederick I married Sophia of Pomerania (1498-1568) which at the time made her the Queen of Denmark and Norway.  They had children Hans (Johan) (1528-1580), Elisabet (1524-1586), Adolf (of Holstein-Gottorp) (1526-1586), Anna (1527-1535), Dorothea (1528-1575) and Frederick (1532-1576).

King Frederick I's father, King Christian I of Denmark (1426-1481) and wife Dorothea had a daughter Margaret (abt 1457-1486) who married at age 12, King James III of Scotland, and a son John in addition to Frederick I.  Christian I founded the Oldenburg dynasty in Denmark.  At times he was King of Denmark, Norway and Sweden during his reign. In 1479 he founded the University of Copenhagen in the Danish capital.  King Frederick I succeeded his nephew, Christian II, whose strong monarchy the Danish nobility never accepted.  Christian II was crowned also hereditary King of Sweden and was known for the "Stockholm bloodbath" the execution of 82 who opposed the Scandinavian Union and his allies.   A Swedish rebellion led to the crowning of Gustav Vasa in Sweden.  In 1523, Christian II abdicated and King Frederick I became King of Denmark and Norway.   Frederick I's reign was characterized by attempts to satisfy the interests of both nobility and common people while maintaining peace through trade with merchants of Holland and the Hanseatic League.  He promised the Catholic Bishops that he was against heresy, but allowed Lutheran preachers into his realm.  Upon his death, civil war broke out for succession, but his son Christian III, who was a Lutheran, and ally of Swedish King Gustav Vasa prevailed.  His reign (1534-1559) is said to ironically laid the groundwork for absolutism of the Danish monarchy to come.  He was succeeded by Frederick II (reigned 1559-1588). 

With this began the Royal LIne of Stina Lindblad, Hinnersmora and Krutgumma and Olof Mattsson Malmberg, parish clerk of Nora, Västmanland, Örebro län, Sweden and their descendants.

Kristina (Stina) Olsdotter Lindblad was the fourth greatgrandmother of Maria Kristina McKeehan, daughter of the website author.  Stina Lindblad married Henrik Henriksson, they were the parents of Karl Hagström (see the Hagström Family Saga).   The history of the Lindblad family was compiled from data provided by uncle Rolf Carlsson (1925-1996) of Nora who loved to tell the Lindblad story and the research of Britt-Marie Lundell of Nora.  Ms. Lundell is interested in determining all descendants to present of parish clerk Olof Mattson Malmberg and Maria Hoyer (Höijer).
