Text source

Hans Henriksson was born in 1680. In 1697, "Han var Larkonstapel vid Artilleriet, hemkommen från Frankrike", ie an NCO in the artillery. Belfrage became an ensign in the Närke och Vermlands infantry in 1701 and later received promotion. He served as lieutenant in 1705. He transferred back to the artillery after fighting at Bender. In that unit he became a captain. Belfrage was a prisoner at Stralsund in December 1715, but returned home the following year, but his wounds kept him out of active service. He left the army in October 1728 and lived until April 1728. Belfrage married Christina Plenningsköld. Hans Henriksson was possibly the son of Henrik Johan Belfrage [SSNE 4340].
