Öresund Toldpenge - 1683

I have a new puzzle to solve, regarding my ancestor Harmen Swafelstock. He returned from the Baltic Sea, and carried a lot of cargo with him for which he had to pay toll. In total he had to pay 8 Rigsdaler and he continued his voyage to La Rochelle in France. Here is the entry in the Toldregister:



And this is my transcription of the text:

No 410

Harmen Pietersz Swafelstock
Aff flielandt, komb fra Antw[erpen] [tack Inger]
med 10 oxhoftt vin - 2 oxhoftt Edich [tack Gijs, Richard, Inger]
1/2 tønde Rossin, 1/2 tønde Corender [tack Inger, August]
1/2 fad schwitscher (=plum) - 4 Læster prunelle [tack Inger]
800 Lb Rafinade 2 fatger Candisirop [tack Inger, August]
philersgeves***), effter nu Certi-
fication, dat: den 25 majo 1683
fig Lad 4 lastor Sild a q[vart] Dr - 2 Dr
for 300 Dr Toback a 2 1/2 ort? - 1 1/2 Dr 18 Sk[illinge]

för lastpenge 4 Dr [Daler]
will till Rewall fyrpenge 4 Dr [Daler] [tack Inger]
Sum[m]a - 8 Dr [Daler]


***) Inger: could it be schwensch-goeds [from Sweden?]

Remember, the text is in Danish from the 17th century and there are surprising differences with modern day Dansk.

Translation in Dutch:
No 410

Harmen Pietersz Swafelstock
van Vlieland, komt van Antw[erpen]
met 10 oxhoofd wijn - 2 oxhoofd Edik
1/2 ton rozijnen - 1/2 ton krenten
1/2 vat pruimen - 4 Lasten pruimedanten
800 pond geraffinerde suiker 2 vaatjes Kandijsiroop
philersgeves***, na nieuwe Certi-
ficatie, datum: den 25 mei 1683
fig Lad 4 lasten haring? a q[vart] (=0,25) Dr - 2 Dr
for 300 Dr tabak a 2 1/2 ort - 1 1/2 dr 18 Sk

voor ladingsbelasting 4 Dr [Daler]
vaart naar Rewall vuurtorengeld 4 Dr [Daler]
Sum[m]a - 8 Dr [Daler]

It seems that Harmen came TO the Baltic in stead of FROM, as I first thought. He carried wine, a produce of France and not from the Baltic countries, and that supports the direction TO the Baltic.

Hallo Richard,

Ik ken de digitale delen van het Sonttolregister via de site van Nationaal Archief. Waar kun je eventueel zoeken in deze nog niet getranscribeerde stukken?

Groetnis, Hans
