A family tree back to 1516.
This is a family tree leading us from Carl Blomberg
(1807-1889) at the bottom, up to the days of king Gustav Vasa in the early
1500's at the top. Starting at the top, the earliest ancestor - so far - is the captain (hövitsman) Peder
Månsson from Glömme in Mjäldrunga parish, Älvsborg County. He lived there
around 1516. His son Peder Pedersson is rather unknown to us, but his
grandson Måns Pederson was a member of the magistrates' court in Bogesund
(now Ulricehamn). His son, Lars Månsson, was a mayor in Mariestad, as was
his son Nils Larsson Aurell. They were both also goldsmiths in Mariestad.
Also the father-in-law of Nils Aurell, Jon Hansson Elding, was a mayor in the city Mariestad. The
beautiful and well kept grave-cover of Nils Aurell and his wife Ingeborg
Elding can still be seen in the floor of Mariestad cathedral, nowadays
under a protecting glass shield. Their daughter Katarina married Sven
Ingemarsson, who amongst other things was a member of the Swedish
parliament. His portrait can be found on the sepulchral tablet, which hangs on
the wall in Mariestad cathedral to his memory. Sven Ingemarsson and
Katarina Aurell lived in Fägre parish and their children was named
Fägersten, maybe after the place where they lived. The daughter Ingegborg
Fägersten married Jakob Brisman in 1713. He had studied in the University
of Uppsala where he took his degree in 1710. In 1715 he was ordained as
clergyman. Unfortunately the Brisman family lost all of their belongings
in a big fire in the city of Skara in 1719. Therefore it was a poor Jakob
Brisman that became rector in the dilapidated rectory in Ransbergs parish
in 1720. He managed, however, to bring the rectory into good order and according to
the diocesan annals, he was a beloved rector of the Ransberg parish. His
daughter Helena Brisman married the inspector Johan Kinberg from Granviken.
Their daughter Ulrika Kinberg married the county sheriff (länsman)
Clas Blomberg from Käpplunda outside Skövde. Their oldest daughter Anna
Lena Blomberg had a son in 1807. The father of the child was not named in
the church records and the child, Carl, lived by his grandmothers' in
Käpplunda. Carl Blomberg grew up and became a school teacher, which he was
for 50 years 1827-1877 in Ödenäs, Älvsborg county. One of his sons was the
schoolteacher Karl Magnus Blomberg (1833-1917).
