Christening Record - Annine Margrethe Christine Jensen

Continuing my research of the Jensen family, I found their daughter Annine's Christening Record.

[Note from JensenJN: Bærkone (Carry woman) I have never seen that word before, but from the name context there is no doub t that this is the lady, who carried the child to the christening.]

[Comment from Jensen JN: ???ejer It seems to read "Stæleejer" and except for the ending "ejer",
which means "owner", the word makes no sense to me.] 
[Comment from JensenJN: 1ste ???gaard. I cannot decide if it reads Stormgaard or Strandgaard 
I will investigate this tomorrow by looking up an old map]

Interesting:
  • Here we see Annine's full name -- Annine Margrethe Christine Jensen. Love it!
  • She was also vaccinated (for small pox) by Zahrtmann, like her brother, and parents. I believe him to be the local doctor.
  • In this record and in her brother Laurits' Christening record Christine's name is listed as Claudina Christine.
