Ravenshorst is an estate and is located between Eckernförde and Goosefeld .

The history of Ravenshorst could only be clarified in essential points through detailed research by Ludwig Hünger .

First mention (Dingswinde)

Ravenshorst is first mentioned in a document on April 11, 1575 in a dinghy . It was concluded between the church of Eckernförde as the owner of the farm and the village of Goosefeld . This contract established the boundaries between both parties. Adapted to today's usage, the text reads (transmission uncertainties in {} brackets):

"We Hans Blome, District Judge, bonding Lanste and simple inhabitants of the mountain Harde make known and declare publicly and that hereby released from everyone within our four Harde thing sticks-enclosure and erected Things our Harde eight sand men there in front of us within the four thing sticks , publicly proclaimed before everyone, known and admitted, after they were appointed by the mayor and council of Eckernförde according to proper land law, to enter a real divorce between their church property and wood, called Ravenshorst, and our gracious prince and gentleman Dorf Goesfelde prove and swear. Accordingly, after diligent remark and attention and inquiry of all such opportunities, they had gone with the present sand people and swore the following as the correct sheath:

From the beginning to the end of Westerrade in the short western (Remen) against the new country pond, starting from there in the Heithorn behind the Bornebroke to behind Langen Stücken and along the Ravenshorster Moor over the old border tree, further towards the city courtyard, the ditch and along Bach and as in Langhorster Wiese walked to the last border tree between princely graces and Heinrich Brockdorf, who stone the earth mentioned {probably marked by boundary stones} and {bekalet?} and the following there with raised fingers for the purpose of her bodily oath to God and swore to his holy gospel that they had set the same thing with stones, as described above, and thus an obviously undisputed border would exist between the aforementioned Ravenshorst and the village of Goosefeld, according to which both sides could use their fixed and sworn part. The representatives of the Eckernförde Church demanded a thing-wind, which was granted to them and carried out by eight pious, innocent Hardes people. Their names are: Jürgen Peter, Henneke Peter, Henneke Möller junior, Peter Hennicksen, Claus Schnack, Johann Plette, Markus Kuhr and Peter Ratke.

These have gone out to discuss each other and come in again with amicable, well-considered advice and courage and have overcome (= fixed) and testified to everything that we have heard word for word, they also want to {then again guard and preserve} when they In their lives they are required to stand there and stand there without cunning and trickery, which leads to more testimony and certificate of truth, we knowingly let our well-known Hardes seal hang under this letter, which is given to Hütten ... "

The seal of the Hüttener Harde (Bergharde)

Seal of the Hüttener Harde

The seals of the former Harden of the Duchy of Schleswig are almost forgotten today, but for the most part, it seems, have been lost. In 1828 the later privy councilor, Professor Dr. LJ Michelsen the seal of the Bökingharde in his work "North Friesland in the Middle Ages". In 1863, archive secretary CMA Matthiesen announced four more Hardess seals in Copenhagen , the Kavslundharde (Kalslundharde, part of which belongs to today's Jutland ), the Tonderharde, the Nübelharde and the Horsbüll, later Wiedingharde.

Willers Jessen in Eckernförde saved a sixth Hardes seal from being completely forgotten. It hangs on a certificate written on parchment, which will be communicated below, and is printed on green wax. The middle, a deer between hills with trees, is still quite well preserved. The legend, which usually fills two lines, is damaged in some places and therefore not always legible with complete certainty. In some places the addition appears automatically. It is not entirely certain whether SEGEL or INSEGEL is to be read. So the inscription is:


On the back: the thing wind between the kerken tho Ekelforde is the foundation of the Rauenshorst and the FG dorp Gosefeldern in 1575

historical overview

The origin of the Ravenshorst manor lies in the dark of history. Possibly the court originated between 1400 and 1500 in the wake of the von der Wisch family? Further research is reserved to find out the exact point in time at which the Ra-venshorst lands came into the possession of the Gottorf duke. Did the Duke want to round off the possessions he had acquired from the von der Wisch noble family around 1520, the Hütten estate, the Wittensee farm with the associated villages - including Goosefeld - with Ravenshorst?

At least since 1717, when the Schleswig region came under royal Danish administration during the Great Northern War , Ravenshorst was run as a royal chamber property. It belonged to the Hütten office . The administrator of the Hüttener Harde had to manage the small estate on behalf of the Danish crown "as in princely times".

He had to lease the property, also known as "little Kate", and send the annual income with all other accounts of his district to the Rent Chamber in Copenhagen.

In 1771 the estate was measured and divided into two parcels. In 1775 these were sold.

Size and limits of the Ravenshorst estate

The problem is the localization of the boundary mentioned in the thing wind. Fortunately, there was a map by Ravenshorst from 1771 that could be inserted into a map from 1800 and, apart from a few uncertainties, enables the described limit to be traced. The sections of the route with an ambiguous course are marked with dashed lines.
