Bengt Hakansson 1666~-1764

Farmer.

Our earliest recorded ancestor was Bengt Hakanson. He first appears in the records of Ekeberga in 1699 when he was married. He is always associated with the homesteads of Rislyeke, Ryd or Rij, and Dafvershult. These are on the western side of Ekeberga, close to where the Kosta glassworks is now located. He died in Rislyeke at the age of 98. The cause of death was recorded as decrepitude.

According to a story passed down in the family, our earliest ancestor was the Frenchman Murat. It was said that Murat was born in Normandy, France, and lived in Normandy & Varmland, Sweden where he was a horse trader. He imported horses from Normandy, possibly for use in the Swedish cavalry. His only son was Anders Peter. According to the story, Anders Peter was the father of Nils Daniel Andersson and his brothers. However the records reveal that Anders Nilsson, son of Nils Bengtsson, was the father of Nils Daniel. The legend of Murat and Anders Peter therefore may either belong to an earlier generation or another branch of the family. Or it could be a folk adaptation of the news of the French General Bernadotte who became King Charles XIV of Sweden in 1818.
