      Sønderho Kro

      The requirements for an inn had to be that there was a clientele, ie a place where people met.

      If we look at Ribe county, there are two places in particular where people met, namely at the ford points for the old ox roads, and at the crossing points. Of these, in the county in the 17th century there is a connection between Strandby on the mainland and Nordby on Fanø, and between Ribe and Sønderho on southern Fanø. In these places, the basis for innkeeping was formed, as storms and storms often hindered the crossing, 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 permit to run "Fanø's both inns", ie both in Sønderho and Nordby. 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 are married

      Klyne commitment letter to "Synderhoe krou". This is thus the first known privilege that only deals with innkeeping at Sønderho.

      Engelstoft became a citizen of Ribe in 1670 and 1685 clerk with the diocesan clerk. He is married three times, where in the last marriage with Anna Pedersdatter Grønholt the daughter Otte Sophie Engelstoft is born, who inherits the grant in 1722, when her mother dies, after surviving the father since 1712.

      On 2 May 1722, Otte had Sophie Engelstoft build a new tavern in Sønderho. The reason why Otte Sophie has a new inn built is probably that the old inn had become too secluded.

      In a document of March 20, 1724, one can read how much Otte Sophie's construction has revolved around: 2 houses, one consisting of 12 subjects and the other consisting of 6 subjects. This building still stands today and is still used as an inn.

      However, the inn was leased on March 23, 1724 to

      Peder Hansen Brinch by contract read at Fanø Birketing. Peder Hansen becomes the ancestor of the genus Brinch in Sønderho. This genus is married to the genera: Sonnichsen and Thomsen.

      However, Otte Sophie Engelstoft had run into liquidity difficulties, and in 1728 she sold Sønderho Kro to Peder Hansen Brinch, who thereby acquired the title deed to the inn, but Otte Sophie still retains the grant. On her death in 1742 he applied for this himself, and received the grant on August 20, 1742. The fee for this was 20 Rd. in attachment and 18 Rd. annual.

      Peder Hansen Brinch died on 13 November 1743. The estate statement states that he was a very poor man. His widow Karen Sørensdatter has a large debt, and it is planned that the inn and the grant will be sold at auction, in order to be able to pay the creditors, the largest of which was the state.
