      History of the Month - March
      Published in 12/03/2019 by Simon Langkilde

      Niels Rasmussen Hellfach Langkilde took over Bramstrup as the first Langkilde in 1848. Niels came from Juulskov when he was adopted by Hans Peter Langkilde. His father was Lieutenant Frantz Jørgen Hellfach, and why he chose to adopt the son of the childless Langkilder at Juulskov unfortunately gets lost in the story. Hans Erling Langkilde writes in his book, Fæstegård og Herresæde, that the lieutenant's uniform may have fascinated Frantz' cousin, Bodil (Niels' mother) and that the child therefore came before the wedding.

      Niels started his career as an 'independent' farmer in 1834 as a tenant on the old estate, Sandholt. He lived with his wife, Marie Frederikke Langkilde, who was the daughter of Niels Langkilde at Biskopstorp on Langeland and had five children. Their sixth child - Bertha Emilie - was born in Bramstrup.

      Bramstrup can be traced back to the Middle Ages. At the beginning of the 15th century, Bramstrup was a castle with moats built by Mikkel Brockenhuus. In the 17th century it was rebuilt so that the manor house appeared as a three-winged half-timbered structure and later in the 19th century the place gained its empire character with another rebuilding.

      Niels Hellfach Langkilde was a skilled and energetic man who had a quite impressive career-not only as a farmer, but also as a member of the county council, deputy chairman of Fyens Disconto Casse and director of the Credit Association of Landowners in Fyens Diocese. He was a Justice Councilor and later a State Councilor- both titles were of an honorary nature.

      In 1865, Niels Marienlund buys. It is said that he did this a bit of defiance when his mother, Bodil Egeløkke
      Langkilde, handed over Juulskov to Hans Peter Egeløkke Langkilde, Niels' eldest child. Niels is described as a bit
      self-willed, and after a lot of moving around the sons, it was his fifth son, William August who came to take
      over Bramstrup, first as a tenant and then as owner at his father's death in 1893. In addition to the farm, he also 'inherited' a part of the father's trust position in Disconto Cassen and Fyens diocese's Patriotic Society.

      The site has been followed by a number of skilled Langkilder at Bramstrup with Niels Einar Langkilde as the current owner.
