Did you also note the additional information in the birth record posted for you by Richard?
Do you read any Swedish? sorry if you know all this stuff.
I have now found that an åbo (pronounce it oboe) is a farmer, lease holder. I posted that question to Richard. We will see what a real Swede says. There are different types of farmers.

In the line about witnesses...
Susc. hustru Johanna Jönsd-r Öraholma; Test. hennes man Åb.: Nils Persson, ibm o Drg. Nils Stjernquist; ibm.
xxx? wife Johanna Jönsdotter Öraholma (her place of residence); witness?? her husband Farmer Nils Persson of the same place and (och) farm laborer Nils Stjernquist of the same place (ibm is Latin)
Father 42 years old, married 15 years

These witnesses are likely local relatives, certainly the Stjernquist.

Måns and Nilla_s house name was Öraholma number 2.

I will look at the geography. Finja parish in in Västra Göinge härad (judicial district) in Kristianstad län (county) in the south of Sweden. I lived briefly in Kristianstad city 40 years ago. It is primarily a good farming area with flat land.

Hi Gail!

Just wanted to let you know that I have found two different persons that are also researching the Stjernqvist family.

But both of them are australian like you so it is likely that you know them already and/or are closely related to them

Their names are Steve Harrison and Julie Crabbe.

Hi Gail!

I have found a record of Annas birth that is actually online. And the best part of it, it's totally free!

If you do a search for the births and use the parents as keywords, you will see that they actually had 10 children, NOT only the 7 that came with them to Australia.

The other three children died young.
