  • Notes 
    • The son that inherited Elinggård was Valentin Hartvig HUITFELDT. He was married to Ingeborg Christine Reichwein. Just like her mother-in-law, she was also an intellectual character type with a faculty for literature and language. She held lectures in København, which was rather uncommon the time. Valentin HUITFELDT came up in economic hard times. His brother, Major Christian Christopher HUITFELDT oft Kjølberg was bankrupt, and Valentin had criticized his large economic (debt). He took over Kjølberg, and it ended with Valentin losing both the farm and supporting estate. It became simultaneously known that he had received monetary gifts for military favors, and it was illegal. He was at the tim e a major general and was decorated with Dannebrog. Therefore he lost his military position and got a reduced pension. He had to additionally sit four weeks in house arrest. The situation was disastrous and humbling, and a family dynasty that ha d lived for 400 years, was ending. Simultaneously, Elinggård had been an economic and social center in the local community. It made therefore a great impression on the people that Valentin had to leave the farm and grounds. BIOGRAPHY: This portrait of Major General Valentin Wilhelm Hartvig HUITFELDT is found at Elingaard. He was the head of Ons¯yske company #1 (÷stre) Sm=lenske national infantry regiment under Sm=lenske national infantry regiment in 1765-1769, the n with Brigadier Lt. Colonel grade. In 1769 he became Brigadier Colonel and head for 1st Bergenbasiske national infantry regiment, and from 1772 he was the head of 2nd Akershusiske national infantry regiment with the grade of Major General fro m 1777. Valentin W.H. HUITFELDT was born at Elingaard in 1719. He was the son of Lt. General Henrik Jorgen HUITFELDT and Birgitte Christine Kaas, and took over Elingaard after his father's death in 1751. Fenrikgraden he go t in 1736 when he was with Rappes gevorbne infantry regiment. Military experience from service utside Norway he received with military service near Livgarden in Kˆbenhavn in 1739; and with this detachment also from 1749 to 1753. Before Valenti n W.H. HUITFELDT became head of Ons¯yske company, he had been placed with Ulriksdahls gevorbne infantry regiment, later called Nordenfjellske gevorbne infantry regiment. HUITFELDT was separated from the military in 1778, the same year as he had to sell Elig=r d with its accompanying landed property and lease (sub) farms. Before the sale of Eling=rd he had incurred a big mortgage debt that he had no way to pay, and he had overestimated the value of reinbursment as considered for officers. Therefore he became under four weeks arrest at Akershus fortress. After this time he got changed to hou se arrest in the dwelling he had in Moss. - Valentin W.H. HUITFELDT's wife was Ingeborg Christine Reichwein. A portrait of her her is also at Elingaard (see p. 87).
