      [NI6691] !NOTE: The houses at Sanne were large. The main building had four chimneys with a heating oven and fireplace in each. One wing had a chimney for the laundry room and bake oven. After Marschalck's death in 1679 the widow kept Sanne with support ing estate until she died in 1698. Subsequently, the farm was inherited by Jens BIELKE's grandaughter, Sophie Amalie Rosenkrantz. She was from her other marriage to T¯nne HUITFELDT who owned Tronstad, ElingÂrd and Tomb. Sophie died in 1711, an d her son, Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT took over the estate. After his death, Sanne was out of the BIELKE family.
      !NOTE: Lt. general Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT had three nobility mountain farms. There was ElingÂrd, Kj¯lberg and Sanne. His business idea was to keep them as tax-exempt mountain farms. Simultaneously he held the farm in good condition and was occu pied with sawmill operations. Huitfeldt additionally was an able military man and had contributed in the large Nordic wars. After the peace he was active in developing sawmill operations near Sanne. He asked permission from the King to expand significantly and build more saw mills. In an application/petition point he said that everything had been postponed due to the war against Carl XII. He also had to pay large amounts to resolve inheritance disputes when he took over Sanne. HUITFELDT argued that the sawmills cou ld utilize lumber both from *sterdalen and his own forests near Sanne. But authorities were very much skeptical when it considered timber purchases in ÿsterdalen, because sawmills in Fredrikstad and Christiania had copyright to purchases from here . HUITFELDT was not accustomed to losing in his attempt to expand sawmill operations and traveled therefore in 1727 to the king in K¯benhavn to promote his plan directly to him, like farmers now and then did when they complained about their yea rly taxes. He pointed out the flood damage, and that the arable land was deteriorated. But the high gentleman let himself not be swayed, and the lawsuit documents were forwarded to the sawmill commission in Christiania. He had to therefore liv e with the operations he had.
      !NOTE: Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT died in 1751, and the heirs sold property (real estate) out of the family. BIOGRAPHY: At ElingÂrd hangs this portrait of Lt. General Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT. As mentioned on p. 282, there were troops under the leadership of HUITFELDT that captured Moss 24 April 1716 after General MÊrner had occupied the town some days . Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT was born at Fredriksten fortress in 1674. He was the son of Brigadier Colonel T¯nne HUITFELDT and Sofie Amalie Rosenkrantz. His brother, the famous commander Iver HUITFELDT, was slain on the ship ¥Dannebrog(tm) in a nava l action against the Swedes at K¯ge bay in 1710. In 1707, Henrik J¯rgen HUITFELDT wed Sofie Pulz. She died in 1711. Through the marriage with Sofie Pulz , HUITFELDT became the owner of both ElingÂrd and Kj¯lberg. He also owned the farm, Sand e in Tune. HUITFELDT's second wife was Birgitte Christine Kaas (see. p. 128).. This marriage was in 1713, a short time after HUITFELDT had became lieutenant colonel in the infantry. Already in 1691, he advanced from corporal in BIELKE's gevorbn e infantry regiment to lieutenant commander in Western Jarlslfergske company under SmÂlenske national infantry regiment. When he was a Lt. he was among others in the French service, and became hard wounded in a battle at Barcelona in Spain in 169 7. A fundamental feature in his succeeding military career, can be mentioned that in the reorganization of the army in 1718 HUITFELDT became a Lieutenant Colonel for (ÿstro) SmÂlenske national infantry regiment and head of 2nd Ons¯yske compan y until 1730. He was a Brigadier Colonel then in 1727 became head for the 1st (ÿstro) SmÂleJiske national infantry regiment, a position he held until his death at Eling=rd, 16 May 1751. His last company was in the years 1731-1751 (1.) Ons¯yske company. HUITFELDT's military grades after 1727 were: Brigadier in 1730, Major General in 1734 and finally Lt. General in 1746.
