Elsa Beata was the daughter of John/Hans Maclean [SSNE 1631] and his first wife Anna Gubbertz. She was born in 1643. On 1 July 1666 she married (one source says Captain) Major Marten Christensson, who was ennobled as Anckarhielm (died in 1677). It was presumably this Esla who freighted some goods to Amsterdam in 1690. She was buried 1 May 1730 in Gothenburg.
