Hammerskriver?

Recommended Posts

peter sven

I have 2 ancestors who are described as a "hammerskriver" and a "hammersforvalter". They both lived in Kongsberg, close to the Kongsberg Silverworks. My Google search for these jobs have been unsuccessful and I am hoping someone in the forum can give an answer. My best gues is a clerk in the silverworks.

Look up Trip hammer in Wikipedia. There were several hammer works associated with the metal industry. A «hammerskriver» was a clerk or accountant employed by the hammer work, and the «forvalter» was the local manager.

Thank you all for your help. My apologies to Lief as I was not aware of his reply (9 May) until today. I am still trying to understand the forum website.
