Sønderho Kro is a Royal Privileged Inn since 1722 in Sønderho on Fanø . The listed inn is one of Denmark's oldest and best-preserved inns, located a few meters from the dike with a view of the marsh and the Wadden Sea . 1977 a new room wing is built. There is a restaurant with 13 rooms and meeting rooms. The foundation of the inn's cuisine is the regional products such as lamb, oysters, wild herbs and berries, and inspiration from nature and the Wadden Sea.
The history of the inn
Sønderho was a crossing point to Ribe and Mandø . Often the crossing was prevented by storm and storm, forcing people to stay involuntarily. The first licensee for this inn is Jørgen Frandsen in Ribe and his wife Margrethe Andersdatter, who on 27 October 1664 received a license to run an inn in Sønderho. About the location of the inn in Sønderho before 1722, there are today no definite clues.
On April 20, 1685, Oluf Christian Engelstoft and his wife Margrethe Klyne take over the letter of commitment to "Synderhoe krou".
1722 Engelstoft's daughter Otte Sophie Engelstoft inherits the grant in 1722, when her mother dies. On 2 May 1722, she had a new tavern built in Sønderho. The reason why Otte Sophie has a new inn built is probably that the old inn had become too secluded.
In 1728, Otte Sophie Engelstoft sells Sønderho Kro to Peder Hansen Brinch, who thereby acquires the title deed to the inn, but Otte Sophie still retains the license. Upon her death in 1742, he applied for it himself, and received the grant on August 20, 1742.

Prepared by Erik Brejl. Ribesvej 3. 6950 Ringkøbing.
In the probate extracts, the deceased, heirs, guardians, guardians and other specified family relations are stated, and reference is made to probate after previous spouses. However, the guardian and guardian are not stated if they are already stated as family, just as the place of employment is not stated for heirs. No personal register has been prepared but personal names are standardized, e.g. both Laurs, Lars and Las are stated as Laurids, however a distinction is made between the names Lassen and Lauridsen. The spelling of place names follows Trap's 5th edition. Information in square brackets is not found in the current text, but is found in the church register, in censuses or elsewhere in the probate protocol. Reference is made to the page, however, no reference is made to the resumption of the shift if it takes place in immediate continuation of the previous one.
