Anna Catharina Cronman III (1660-?)

Confusion[edit | edit source]

Anna Catharina Cronman can be either the sister of Joachim Cronman (c1635-1703) who married von Knorring or she can be the daughter of Joachim Cronman (c1635-1703) who married von Rohr. Anrep's standard genealogy conflated the two. See Anna Catharina Cronman (1630-?). Gabriel Anrep made the original error that conflated the Anna Cronman born around 1630 with the one born around 1660 and other genealogists have repeated his error. That error was corrected by Gustaf Elgenstierna when he edited and republished the Anrep genealogy in the 1920s. The error occurred because of the age difference between von Rohr and Cronman. There is still a problem in that the 1660 Anna appears to be too young to be the mother of the first von Rohr children. The 1630 Anna would be too old to be the mother of the von Rohr children. The most reasonable explanation would be that the 1660 Anna was the mother of the later born von Rohr children and was not the mother of Joachim von Rohr (1678-1757) as shown in every genealogy.

Parents[edit | edit source]

Birth[edit | edit source]

She was born around 1660. Several sources list her as born in 1667. However if she was the mother of Joachim von Rohr (1678-1757) she would have been just 11 years old when he was born. If we adjust her age to 1660 she would be 18. Almost every genealogy lists her as his mother. Either one of the earlier wives of Hans Christoffer von Rohr (1626-1700) is the mother, or Anna was born around 1660. There is a listing for an Anna Catharina Cronman born around 1660 that is assumed to be the one that died in 1661 and it is assummed that our Anna was named for her.

Siblings[edit | edit source]

Marriage[edit | edit source]

She married Hans Christoffer von Rohr I (1626-1700) around 1676. If she was born in 1660 she would have been 16 years old when they married and he would have been 34 years older.

Children[edit | edit source]

Death[edit | edit source]

She died on December 03, 1685 in Angered, Sweden. She would have been 25 years old if born in 1660. This would have her dying after the birth of her last child.

Relationship[edit | edit source]

Anna Catharina Cronman (c1630-1685) was the eighth great-grandmother of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).

Update[edit | edit source]

Corrected by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) on January 7, 2011 with the difference between Anna Catharina Cronman I and II and III. Gabriel Anrep lists Anna Catharina Cronman (c1630-?) as the wife of Hans Christoffer von Rohr I (1626–1700) in his 1858 genealogy because they are roughly the same age. She would be the sister of Joachim Cronman but would have been almost 60 by time her first child was born. Gustaf Elgenstierna corrected the Anrep genealogy in the 1920s. He made Anna Catharina Cronman (c1660-?) as the wife of Hans Christoffer von Rohr I (1626–1700). This makes the wife of von Rohr the daughter of Joachim Cronman, and not his sister. This puts her at the proper age for bearing the children of von Rohr. Von Rohr is 30 years years older than Anna Catharina Cronman (1660-?), which is not unheard of. This error between the Anna's of two generations has been repeated in many online genealogies. There may also be a third Anna Catharina Cronman that died as an infant confusing the genealogy further.
