      Christiern Nielsen, mayor of Varde, is mentioned in 1519 in connection with a dispute with Ribe citizens about trade on the Varde market, a dispute that had lasted for 60 years. In 1533 they received a royal letter stating that they used to visit Varde market Ash Wednesday, Midfast Sunday and Sct. Jacobi Apostles Dag (July 23), but the citizens of Varde defended themselves with weapons and guardians and threw down their stuff and goods. But when the king was on Ribe's party, Varde citizens had to bow down and let the citizens of Ribe trade in their market twice a year. Mayor Christiern Nielsen was one of the most important stud traders of the time. In 1511 (after it had been closed for export for a year due to war with Lybæk) he got 550 bulls to perform on condition that they were to be driven veteran to Holland, that they should not benefit the enemies of the kingdom. 1519, when 12 men in Varde performed 1284 bulls,were the 202 mayor's. His daughter Lene married the mayor of Vejle Mads Nielsen, and after his death in 1539 the second time married the mayor of the same town Clemen Sørensen the Elder. She probably died in 1556 in Varde, but was buried in Vejle. A son, Jens Christiernsen, Varde, became a significant man in Ribe (not to be confused with a canon of the same name). He replaced Niels Markvardsen as pastor of Petri church in (or outside Ribe), but became after the change of religion, when this congregation came to form a component of the newly established Katrine parish, the first parish priest for this. He must therefore first have been a Catholic priest. He appears as kanik 1537, when he was one of the chapters of the chapter, and probably due to obedience to the new doctrine, he thus became parish priest at Katrine church the same year. He was first married in 1540,but seems before that time to have had a daughter, who is unashamedly attributed to him in his epitaph, and in the school record it is noted that he lived only 7 years in the marriage, and it was childless. The daughter was married to councilor Anders Sørensen Klejn, Bishop Hegelund's father-in-law and Anders Bording's grandfather. There is a memorial poem about him between Hans Frandsen (Johanni Francisi) epigrams, in which he is praised for his exceptional skill and company. He died 25 / 6.1547, his wife lived until 1560, and after the tombstone she was to be 55 years old. She should then have been born in 1505, but it must have been read incorrectly, on the tombstone has rather stood 35 years.Bishop Hegelund's father-in-law and Anders Bording's grandfather.

      In addition to the aforementioned Lene, Kristiern Nielsen Varde had another daughter, who married councilor Lauge Stephensen, Ribe and became the mother of Bishop Hans Laugesen, who was born in Ribe in 1530.

      In 1537, the king convened a meeting of clergy in Odense to write a draft of a new church ordinance [church ordinance, ed. lis]. On behalf of the Ribe Chapter, Master Søren Nimb and Master Jens Chrestensen, Varde. In addition to his position in Ribe, the latter had a substitute in Vejle, namely "Holy Cross", who after his death was admitted to the hospital in Ribe.
