  • Notes 
    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. The book "The Vikings, a History," by Robert Ferguson (Penquin Books, 2010), p. 381, in commenting on the ending of the Viking Age by the effective Christianization of the Scandinavians:
      "In St. Olav, the Norwegians had had their patron saint since about 1034. The Danes, who had accepted Christianity at the monarchial level some sixty years earlier, had to wait a little longer for theirs. In 1086 Cnut II of Denmark was planning an invasion of William the conqueror's England with a fleet which, somehow, never quite managed to leave the waters of the Limfjord. I was almost as though the memory of how such things were done was fading. Before it had returned he was dead, murdered by his enemies in the church of St. Alban, in Odense. As St. Cnut he was canonized in 1101."
      The farm of Skibstedgard at the western entrance of the Limfjord was the rallying point for this invasion force.

      2. "Appelone" with no surname appears as a witness in the christening records of her eldest daughter Karen Jacobsdatter's first two children with her first husband Lars Matzen.
