Tekst fra gammelt kart

Recommended Posts

Jeg finner uttrykket "Fiering Miel" på et kart fra antagelig 16-1700 tallet. Jeg finner uttrykket igjen i mange bygdebøker, da som måleenhet for andeler i gården. Sammen med smør og skinn.

Antar at Fiering er fjerding altså en kvart. Og miel er kanskje mel? Det jeg ikke forstår er hvorfor dette står på kartet som er et planleggingskart fra det danske forsvaret. Kan dere hjelpe? Bilde av kartet vedlagt.

Please forgive me for replying in English - I can read Norwegian, but not write it.

 

Given that "Fiering Miel" is right above a scale bar, is it possible that "Miel" is supposed to be "Mil" (either the Dansk mil = 7532 meter or the Norsk mil = 10000 meter - see https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mil)? Thus, "Fiering Miel" would be a quarter mile, or either 1883 or 2500 meter. This would agree with the scale of the map; the distance from Tønsberg to the tip of Føyen (today's Føynland) is about the same as the scale bar on the map, and on a modern map I get that distance to be about 2.4 km.
