  • Name Peder Gallesen 
    • Fanø Krogård - part 1

      Grant of October 27, 1664.

      The inns on Fanø are among the oldest privileged inns in Ribe County. As early as October 27, 1664, Jørgen Frandsen and his wife Andersdatter from Ribe received a license to run "Fanøs both Inns", ie both in Nordby and Sønderho. .

      Peder Gallesen receives a grant

      In 1670 Jørgen Frandsen is mentioned to have the inn permit on Fanø, but in 1695 he lives in Ribe.

      In 1682, Peder Gallesen received the inn permit on Fanø, but no existing or former inn is mentioned, so it must be assumed that the inn has been closed for several years.

      Peder Gallesen was from Helsingborg, where he had suffered great damage to his properties during the Scanian War; Peder was the brother-in-law of county clerk Ifver Raun in Ribe, whose sister Clara always stayed with Peder.

      After arriving on Fanø, Peder married Margrethe Elisabeth Engelstoft, daughter of county clerk Oluf Christian Engelstoft in Ribe

      Suspicion of smuggling

      After Peder Gallesen has taken over the inn, he believes that he has discovered that there is an extensive smuggling distillery with associated smuggling inns in the parish, and that there is also illegal importation of beer and spirits, which he claims is to the great detriment of his business.

      Among those Gallesen suspects are Søren Andersen and Anders Jensen in Rindby. He gets them sued on April 30, 1685, but they claim that long before Gallesen came to the island, they had stopped running the inn, and that they also knew nothing about Gallesen's right to run the inn. Gallesen had no evidence that the two ran a smuggling inn, and they were acquitted.

      However, Gallesen got busy getting his grant registered. This apparently does not have the great effect, for the land registers show that he constantly accuses his city children of illegalities.

      The innkeeper is beaten

      In 1685, when he had to search for a boat trip to Amrum, he had an accident in the inn, as he was not aware that there were also a couple of Sonderhoninger in the inn, and Gallesen made a statement that "that both Sønderhoninger and Fanningerne were Scoundrels, Thieves and Pirates. " , something right pack to deal with and similar statements.

      The two honeycombs told about Gallesen's behavior when they came home to Fanø, and a while later Gallesen got a late night, at home in his own inn, a proper suit flogged by a couple of young fishermen.

      Gallesen of course reported the assault to the authorities, and the young fishermen, according to the land register on 5 August 1685, only agreed to Gallesen "give out" in the inn, which also happened.

      On February 22, Peder Gallesen applies to the king for permission to trade in a petition with the following content:

      "..... and at the same time it occurred to me that what the inhabitants of the same little country might need for the necessities of their houses of needy merchandise, that I alone may provide them for such cheap payment as they can get it from anyone else , as it hands for them by means of storms and storms, especially in the winter time for a long time, many times well and in the summer for a long time, that they are prevented from coming from and to the country, that I might thereby provide the bread for me and mine. regard the great damage, I poor Man in the pastWartime in Helsingborg has a little, as the Houses and Farms, as my Wife's Heritage and Welfare consisted in, presumably the fortification of the fortress was broken down, wherefore I have in no way enjoyed the slightest thing for consideration. Beder Eders kgl. The Heart of the Majesty most graciously hears my prayers, and I remain until Death Yours Royal. His Majesty's most submissive and faithful conscientious heir and servant.

      Peder Gallesen "

      The application was rejected, so the much-needed increase in income did not materialize. The debt grew and at the end of 1686 Gallesen had to take out a loan from county administrator Jens Christensen in Ribe to cover the debt of 400 Slettedaler, and on December 11 he issues a mortgage bond in the inn in "my inherent house with adjacent Bryggehus and Stald, both existing in twenty-one subjects, as well as all that is nailed in it and masonry, and a little piece of meadow. The amount must be repaid "until March 11 right and in ready Money and no other Item". (The people of Fanø used to pay interest and installments with fish for delivery at the Sct. Hans or Mikkels markets in Ribe.). If Gallesen does not pay, he must cede the inn to the creditor.

      Margrethe Elisabeth runs the inn until 1697 **

      Peder Gallesen died in 1693, and the widow Margrethe Elisabeth ran the inn until 1697, when she leased it to Jens Nielsen Baggesen, who had married the birch bailiff Hans Rasmussen Dunck's widow. The annual rent to the widow was 9 Rdl. + taxes to the king's coffers.

      The payment was very difficult and after 4 years he could no longer pay rent and taxes and Margrethe Elisabeth took over in 1701 together with her new husband Anders Clausen "well-respected Parish Degree for Nordby parish", again the inn.

      They also have problems with the economy and on 11 March 1703 when interest and installments had to be paid to county administrator Jens Christensen in Ribe,

      shows a statement that they are 7 years behind with interest payment, and that 266 Rdl. , furthermore, they owe the creditor for 12 bushels of Funen malt.

      Jens Christensen's patience has run out and he is summoning the innkeeper to court.

      Christen Jensen and Frederik Hein Jensen receive a letter of commitment at Krogården on 28 June 1703

      At the verdict, Jens Christensen is transferred to the inn, but transfers his right to his sons Christen Jensen and Frederik Hein Jensen in exchange for paying 7 Rdl. Yearly. On June 28, 1703, the brothers received a letter of commitment from the inn with the right to run an inn and trade in beverages on the same terms as Peder Gallesen.

      Jeppe Dideriksen leases the inn

      Jens Nielsen Baggesen is applying to become a tenant of the inn, but it is not known for sure whether he became one. It was not until 1709 that there was documentation that Jeppe Dideriksen from Hillerup near Ribe leased the inn. Jeppe Dideriksen also leases the inn in addition to the first 3 years of lease. He was married for the first time to Sophie Amalie Harmens, whose sister Margrethe Cathrine Harmens is married to the town bailiff, Chancellor Vesti Thomsen Lund in Ribe, the second time he was married to Maren Sørensdatter. Jep Dideriksen was also called Jep Hillerup, probably because he was born in Hillerup. He was the owner of Ydermøllen in Ribe for a few years.

      During Dideriksen's lease period, the inn is inspected several times and a couple of them must be reproduced here:

      View of the inn

      December 4, 1715, Krogården's buildings are inspected by 4 men announced by the court, namely Hans Nielsen, Søren Nielsen, Therkel Frandsen and Adser Christensen, all of Nordby. It is then said that
