  • Notes 
    • "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.
