      Jens Lauridsen Foss (1727-1749)
      Born on 18 December 1694 as the son of parish priest Laurids Davidsen Foss in Pjedsted vicarage near Vejle.

      JL Foss graduated from Horsens Latin School in 1715 and from the academy in 1719. After that he first taught children in various vicarages for 5 years, after which he taught at Ribe Latin School for 3 years.

      On 28 February 1727 he became an assistant and successor to Christian Engelstoft, and finally he took over the office as parish priest in Sønderho on 22 May 1739.
      Completely in line with Chr. Engelstoft's other activities, however, he did not resign from office without first making sure that Foss gave him a pension for the rest of his life! So Foss had to buy into the not very lucrative vocation.
      To Foss' luck, it only took 3½ years before Engelstoft died.

      Jens Lauridsen was the son of Laurits Davidsen Foss af Ribe Cathredal
