Title: Genealogie oder Beschreibung s�mtlicher eigenbeh�riger Leute und Stellen 1658-1669 (State Archive Hannover: Hann. 74 Diepholz 1363)
Publication: a volume of detailed multi-generation ancestries prepared in 1667-68 by the administrators of Amt Lemf�rde
Note: J�rgen Hagen and Dorothee Kreuer acquired the Bente farm in Lembruch from the previous owners. (Source: Genealogie oder Beschreibung s�mtlicher eigenbeh�riger Leute und Stellen 1658-1669 [State Archive Hannover, Germany, Hann. 74 Diepholz 1363].) In accordance with regional custom, they adopted the surname associated with the farm, and J�rgen retained it when he married a second time. The holder of the Bente farm in Lembruch was by tradition a "Karmann," one of five in the village. They were required to transport fish from nearby Lake D�mmer, which was the exclusive preserve of Amt Lemf�rde, to the markets in Osnabr�ck, M�nster, and other towns. They used wagons (Karren) for this purpose. Consequently, they were excused from paying annual quitrents to the Amt for their farms.
