  • Notes 
    • Thyme's wife is not known.

      The Lindegaard family have their roots at Odense and Sallinge County, Funen, Denmark.

      The name LINDEGARTH is first mentioned around 1245 when Mads Lindegarth I Fyen (Mads Lindegarth from Funen) appears in a list over old Danish names.

      From 1245 to around 1490 the name appears in various documents, spelled differently like Lindegaarth / Lindegaard / Lindegardh / Lindegaardt. They are all merchants and owners of large estates on the Island of Funen.

      Names like Lass Lindegaard, Knud Lindegaard, Mads Lindegaard and Thyme Lindegaard are mentioned in Sallinge County's archives in function as "Good Men," meaning that they have held high positions in the communities. A Lauritz Mathes Lindegaard appears in various papers from 1479 to 11498 as "Sandemand" - a lifelong judge function, appointed by the King. In this case, King Christan 1 and King Hans.

      It is believed, and generally accepted, that all these Lindegaards are part of the same family. However, we have nothing except the name, and the fact that they lived in the same area, to link them to the first known Lindegaard in our family, Thyme (Timme) Lindegaard, who was born around 1480/90.

      It is quite unique for a non-royal family to be able to follow the family roots more than 500 years back. There are not much information about the first Lindegaards, but from the beginning of the 1700s, they are quite easy to follow. From Funen they moved to other parts of the country, especially east- and southwest Jutland, and also to Norway, which was part of Denmark until 1814, and to the United States [1]
