  • Død
  • JAN 1704
  • 23. sg. Kofodgård, Østermarie

Occupation: Land-owner (Proprietær)
Reference: KG2 note
Hans Madsen Kofoed was Captain for the East-District (Østerherreds)
company and was given the esteemed position of reeve (sandemand) in
Østermarie parish. He became a very wealthy man through his own hard
work, plus what his wife brought into the marriage with her. Karen
Clausdatter Kjøller's probate hearing was held on January 22, 1694.
For his second wife Karen Hermansdatter Bohn probate was held on
February 15, 1702. Over the pulpit of the old Østermarie Church
(which is now in ruins) hung a banner with the Kofoed coat-of-arms
and the following inscription: "Herunder hviler velædle Herre
Capitaine Hans Madsen Kofoed, fød 1634 Juleaften, død 1704 d. 1'
Februarii." (Hereunder rests the noble Esquire and Captain Hans
Madsen Kofoed, born Christmas Eve 1634, died February 1, 1704.) From

"Bornholms Beskrivelse", Thurah, page 61. The above given date of
death seems to be in error - as other records place Hans Madsen
Kofoed's burial on January 21, 1704, and that his probate hearing was

held only a couple of days later, on January 23, 1704.
