An estate (herregård) in Denmark is a larger farm covering 24 tønder hartkorn (a unit of land valuation) or
more which belonged to a noble person. Later on, it came to signify a manor house to which there was a
farming activity attached. The name originates from the fact that the owners were herremænd, men that had
made a pledge to perform war duties for a master, generally the King. After the middle ages the term adel
(nobility) came into use for this group of people in the society. In this section, estates and manor houses
with a family connection are described. The work to document these properties is ongoing and pictures and
stories will be added when available. See map of estates here.
