"On the 3rd of April local inhabitant [to Hammenstedt] Ernst Jürgen Harborth went to Erbsen, Adelepsen court, where he had gone to visit his son Caspar, who is a Dragoon, died and was buried on the 5th"

2 "Herbert Mundhenke: Die Kopfsteuerbeschreibung der Fürstentümer Calenberg-Göttingen and Grubenhagen von 1689, vol. 10, Hildesheim 1964" [the original tax lists are at the Hannover State Archive]

p. 127-132 Hammenstedt
p. 130 CASPAR HERBORD (2 Morgen farmland, 27 Gr.)
and his wife (12 Gr.)
children: Ernst Jürgen (6 y.), Hans Jürgen (4 y.) and Anna Maria (1 1/2 y.)
"Ackerjunge" (farmworking boy) Hans Kastorp (9 Gr.)
"Kleinmagd" (young maid) Dorothea Otten (8 Gr.)

1/4 of the village sheep-farm (27 Gr.)
Ruhmann`s land (30 Morgen, 18 Gr.)
Brauer`s land (7 Morgen, 18 Gr.)

All in all Caspar Herbord (Harborth) had to pay 119 Gr. (Groschen) taxes. 36 Groschen made 1 Taler, so that the tax amount was 3 Taler and 1 Groschen

The taxed land was 39 Morgen. One Morgen had 2621.1 square meters, so that 39 Morgen were 102222.9 square meters or 25.26 acres. This might sound like a small plot of land for American measures, but in Germany this already was a middle size farm. Ruhmann`s and Brauer`s land were taxed much lower as the normal farmland. It seems to be possible that this land was of lower quality.

There were two other Herbord households in Hammenstedt in 1689:

p. 128 HANS HERBORD`s widow (43 Morgen, 3 Taler, 24 Gr.)
farmhand Hans Gottschalk (1 Taler)
maid Sophia (12 Gr.)

Hans Herbord`s widow was one of the biggest tax payers in Hammenstedt. It seems to be probable that she owned a big house and good farmland.

p. 132 HEINRICH HARBORD, a small miller (at a water mill) (2 Taler)
and his wife (24 Gr.)

I do not know how Hans and Heinrich Herbord were connected with Caspar Herbord, but I think it is very probable that these three families/households were closely related.

In Hammenstedt there were five Hungerland households, three Meinecke households and two Bode ones.

Hammenstedt had 337 inhabitants in 1689.

34 70 Hammenstedters Emigrated - by Wilhelm Zimmerman as published in "The Northeimer Heimatblatter" in January 1961.

The years 1847, 1848 and 1854 were years of travel for many Hammenstedters. At that time 69 inhabitants of the small village left their home and emigrated to America. What induced these ment to turn their backs on their home? Did they hope to find their luck in the new World? Was it the longing to work some land? This last question seems to have been the desire of our immigrants. In most cases it was about simple day laborers, who at the time had inadequate livelihood at home and who hoped for and found property on the other side of the ocean. In 1847 there were 19 families in 1848 one adn in 1854 the last family immigrated to Canada. The 21 families dispersed this way: One of each family Grobkopf, Hungerland and Kahle; than the Dempewolf and the four families of Harborth, Knoke, Rode and Ronnenberg. The goal was upper Canada. The emigrants were very welcome here in the middle of the last century; becausehuge expanses of land awaited cultivating and they viewed especially well the diligent and hardworking Germans. It should also be stressed that today the families of Grosskopf, Knoke and Ronnenberg are not found in Hammenstedt anymore while the names of Dempewolf, Harborth, Hungerland, Kahle and Rode have maintained to the present time. Years ago the contributer received a newspaper clipping from a Canadian newspaper from a person named Knoke. This Knoke is a relative of the Wilhelmine Knoke about which the article reports. It is written in the English language. It is written about the death of a woman of Hammenstedt. The inscription reads "Gone to Rest". On April 21 (unfortunately the year is missing) Fr. Wilhelmine Hillemann was called to her heavnly home after a sickness that lasted only 5 days. The reason for her death was old age. W. Knoke was born on Jan 9, 18 (according to Church records 1826:see below) in Hammenstedt Hannover Kingdom. She landed in Canada with her parents in 1846. On June 23 1852 she married Mr. W.H. Hillemann in Canada. To this union 8 children were born, 3 sons and 5 daughters. The oldest daughter born in Canada the rest of the children in Winnishiek Co. near Locust. In 1854 they traveled to Iowa. They arrived in Lansing but at that time there were still no Pullman Cars or automobiles so that they had to follow Indian paths from Lansing to Locust where they farmed until 1894. They then retired and moved to Decorah, where they have lived ever since. Mr. and Mrs Hillemann belonged t the first settlers of Winnishiek Co. and the nearest markets were Lansing and LaCrosse Wisconsin, to which they had to drive their products by oxen. Her husband and two sons preceed her in death. The remaining children were with her when she drew her last breath on her bed, leaving a son W. Hillemann in Burr Oak and 5 daughters and Henry Knoke of Decorah plus other friends and relatives. The funeral was held in the funeral home on Sunday April 22 at 2 o'clock by Pastor Willel, she rests in peace.

Note: excerpt from the church book: 1826. On Jan 9 Johanne Justine Harborth wife of Heinrich Friedrick Knoke gave birth to a daughter, who was baptized on January 29 and named Carline Wilhelmine Elizabeth. She emigrated to upper Canada in May 1847, with her father and 4 siblings and 32 other Hammenstedters. Her mother had already died in 1845; her husband was a day laborer.

36 At the age of fourteen, Charlotte was youngest child to immigrate with Frederick Wicke and Louisa Luedeke from Lagerhausen, Hanover State, Germany in 1846. Here parents names are recorded on page 3, item number 6, of the Church records for 1st St. John's, Seebach's Hill. Following their names, in the column where children are listed, are two birth dates. The first is her brother August H.'s birth date and the next is Charlotte's.

In this same Church book, on page 13, the birth (Aug 1, 1854) and baptism (Nov 21, 1854) of Ludwig Freier and Charlotte Wicke's first child, Wilhelm, is recorded. A second child, Maria Elizabeth, born to Ludwig and Charlotte on Jun 18, 1856, and baptized on Dec 7, 1856, is recorded on page 17.

In the deaths section of the Church records for Totness (now 2nd St. John's, Wartburg), Charlotte Freier, wife of Ludwig Freier of Mecklenburg is recorded to have died two days before her 30th birthday on Jan 6, 1862.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Christine (Chris) was the daughter of John D. and Edna Fisher of Shakespeare Ontario. John was the Clerk of South Easthope Township in Perth County for 50 years until his untimely death in 1949. He was actively involved in the political events of his time and Christine, no doubt, picked up her life long interest through him.

Edna moved the family into Stratford after John's passing. Here, Christine finished her business education, entered the work force and met Lawrence Russell. They married in 1951 and resided in Edna's house at 85 Dufferin Street. In 1952, Deborah was born, followed closely after in 1953 by John. They were followed by Grace in 1955 and Mary in 1957. Troubles, however entered the marriage and Lawrence left Christine in 1961.

For the next 8 years, Christine worked to support her family as a single mom. Her mother Edna was the rock by her side during this time and taught the 4 children, the things that Christine and her siblings had learned a generation earlier. In 1968, Edna passed on after a lengthy battle with cancer.

That year, Chris started spending time with Lorne Sippel. Lorne had lost his wife to illness and like Christine was looking to fill a void. In no time they became an 'item' and by the summer of '69 were ready to get married. This instantly created a large family of 7 children. Lorne's daughter Judy was married and brothers Brian and Wayne were still at home.

For ten years, Lorne and Chris resided at 85 Dufferin, until a promotion for Lorne at Cooper-Bessemer, necessitated a move to the Toronto area. They picked the A section of Bramalea in Brampton where they have resided ever since.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chris was many things but mostly she was full of life. Her interests were many and she was as interested in the success of others as much or probably more than her own.

In the early fifties she was a member of the Stratford Little Theatre which preceded the famous festival of today. Chris was an active member and president, for a time, of the Shakespeare Public School Home and School Association. She was, over the years, an active fund raiser and canvasser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Diabetes Association and the Cancer Society. Lorne and Chris, together, were active volunteers and contributors with the Lambton Heritage Museum and the Lake Smith Conservationists. One thing she never joined was a Seniors club which she considered to be for others, unlike busy Lorne and her.

Christine loved the english language. There were few who could talk up a storm like her. Her opinions were many and they were current. She could and would make her points forcefully and unlike the rest of the world which kept sex, politics and religion away from the kitchen table, Chris encouraged those subjects and others to be discussed and enjoyed the results. She enjoyed word play and puns, good jokes, editorial cartoons and good interviews. Broad British comedy with great dialogue would set her off even if she had the script memorized from too many viewings.

Her opinions were also broad and well thought out. Christine was an inveterate reader who kept on top of issues, locally, nationally or internationally through her daily perusing of the Star. This was augmented by CBC radio news and current affairs, Charlie Rose on PBS, Lloyd on CTV and Peter on CBC TV. She could discuss Darfur, the Taliban or Timor as readily as Obama or Dion. She had some problems with certain names like Harper but it might have been brain cramps.

Christine's politics were liberal. LARGE L and small l. A passionate defender of the social benefits that Canada gives her citizens and one who knew from experience what it was like to be at the short end, her arguments were impassioned but reasoned. She could not abide public figures who were not empathetic to their electors. She believed in a civil service that was civil and gave service. Her father taught her well and she passed on these lessons to those who would listen.

She had her public heroes. Names such as Charlotte Whitton, Judy Lamarsh and of course, Mayor Hazel McCallion were often mentioned as inspiring leaders. Chris had a special fondness for Pierre Elliot Trudeau and Leonard Cohen but the one who gave her the most joy was June Callwood. Her passing recently was a blow as Chris figured she was just getting her second wind. The optimism of the ageless.

Christine's reading only started with the newspaper and magazines. Her real passion was books. So many books had she read over the years, that she had a series of black books listing the hundreds of authors and the thousands of books. Chris shared this interest as with many other things with Lorne. It was assumed that they both had a majority stake in the Brampton Public Library such was the service they received. Two days before her passing, the library phoned to say the latest order was already in. She loved to read to children and many memories of mother, grandmother and great grandmother Chris will be of a book, her lap and that voice.

One of the greatest gifts Christine received from her mother Edna was the love of Gardening. This love has now been passed down three more generations. The gardens that she took over from her mother in Stratford were added to and changed to Lorne's and her liking over their ten years together there. But the best was yet to come.

Over the next thirty years in Brampton, their yard, through perseverance, good planning and hard work became a showpiece on their street. From trellises with roses and clematis to wild gardens with solomon seal and trilliums, from boulevard rock gardens scavenged from their many trips north to formal annual beds, from vegetable beds bulging with produce to miniature rock garden specimens, from formal hedges to graceful shade trees, from grape vine grottoes to heavy laden fruit trees, it was all there. A place of peace and beauty. A place that made strangers stop and look. A place that neighbours came to see the weekly and monthly changes. A place that eventually won them awards for three straight years from the local Horticultural Society. The first one came when Chris was 76 and Lorne was 78. Just starting out in the business. An inspiration to all.

The gardens also were home to another passion. The annual Halloween decorating extravaganza. Always changing, never the same ,the decorating got Chris in the mood for all the young goblins who were out trick or treating for the night. She liked to find who they were and what they were and where they lived. A guess that went around was that it was really a trick on Chris's part to keep them long enough to ingest their youthful spirit for her nefarious ends. HOOHaHa

Chris made good use of the produce that came from their gardens and the local markets. Her preserves were many and were much anticipated gifts. From chili sauces to jams and jellies, the factory kitchen was always producing in season. When the harvest ended , it was time for the annual Christmas cookie baking bee which lasted for months. The volume of cookies produced was astounding and the tastes were even better. Chris's best was her shortbread and your cookie tin would have a few but never enough. The family was big you know, everyone should get a share.

One funny thing that has been pointed out about the last 15 or so years is how little Christine cooked. Baked yes. Preserves yes. But cooking not so much. Her explanation was always the same or a variation on this. I never was a good cook. Lorne is so much better. He likes to cook. I don't and I just did cause I had too. Excuses ? Maybe. But the truth was out there for all to see. Lorne by a landslide.

When you look back over time, one thing that you notice is how busy people really are. No wonder Chris and Lorne never joined a seniors club. They never had time. Besides the things mentioned above, they entertained , they played lots of cards, they went out to dinner lots of times, they toured the countryside locally and nationally lots of times, they payed their taxes at the casinos lots of times and once and awhile got a refund, they visited their relatives and partied with friends, they went fishing and caught lots of fish, and they laughed. They laughed a lot. They bickered too. But they laughed. They laughed with each other and at each other. They laughed with their friends and their relatives. They enjoyed life together. They were in love and it showed. It was as bright and beautiful as their gardens. It was an inspiration to all.

Grave Reference: XIV. C. 11.

Location: Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery is about 1 kilometre east of the village of Reviers, on the Creully-Tailleville-Ouistreham road (D.35). Reviers is a village and commune in the Department of the Calvados. It is located 15 kilometres north-west of Caen and 18 kilometres east of Bayeux and 3.5 kilometres south of Courseulles, a village on the sea coast. The village of Beny-sur-Mer is some 2 kilometres south-east of the cemetery. The bus service between Caen and Arromanches (via Reviers and Ver-sur-Mer) passes the cemetery.

It was on the coast just to the north that the 3rd Canadian Division landed on 6th June 1944; on that day, 335 officers and men of that division were killed in action or died of wounds. In this cemetery are the graves of Canadians who gave their lives in the landings in Normandy and in the earlier stages of the subsequent campaign. Canadians who died during the final stages of the fighting in Normandy are buried in Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery. There are a total of 2048 burials in Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery. There is also one special memorial erected to a soldier of the Canadian Infantry Corps who is known to have been buried in this cemetery, but the exact site of whose grave could not be located.
