Andersdatter, Elle(n)

Written by:  Valborg Lindgärde

Elle(n) Andersdatter is believed to be the widow of Hans Hanssøn, resident of Maribo. The hymn “Eja, min sjæl ret inderlig sig fryder”, which is ascribed to Elle(n) Andersdatter, was found among the books of the Karen Brahe Library (collection of old theological and historical works dating back to pre-1736), which also contains a book of hymns for the funeral of “Elline Andersdaatter”.
