No 5 Castle Street East Land Tax 1791-1796 Rasmus Kleboe
Mr Kleboe of Castle St was a benefactor of Ossulston Hospital between 1787 and 1791 / 1806 Erasmus Kleboe Gerrard St Soho  (London Lives) / Helen Maria dau of Erasmus & Bergette Maria Kleboe was born 24.5.1803 and bapt at St Anne Soho 8.6.1803 / Erasmus K adult and Elizabeth K child were both buried there 10.6.1803 / Andreas Christian Kleboe appr to Stationers Coy 1809 (bbti.bham.ac.uk) married 18.7.1817 Charlotte Hudson at St George Bloomsbury by banns, their child Rasmus Holly William Kleboe was baptised on 10.1.1819 at St Andrew Holborn, of Brook St printer, Andreas Christian was buried 29.12.1819 St Anne Soho age 25 and his widow married William Timbrell widow on 17.3.1822 at Limehouse St Anne. His son (?) having been a printer is the only clue I have to Erasmus Kleboe's trade in Castle St East.  An Anna Maria d of Rasmus Kleboe was baptised in Norway in 1783, and a Rasmus Kleboe was married in Norway in 1745, and in Denmark in 1762.


Erasmus Kleboe is my 4 greats grandfather. By 1803 he had moved to 52 Gerard Street where he payed £4/6s/8d tax. This might have been a bad move because four of the six Kleboes died within 14 months, only Bergette and son Andreas survived.
Erasmus' mother, Ellen Maria Kleboe 1728 - 1803, lived with him at Gerard Street, her cause of death was 'age'. Erasmus and his daughter Elizabeth were buried on the same day, June 12th 1803, at St Anne's Soho. When the churchyard was cleared in 1891 the family's bones were taken to plot 1 Brookwood Cemetery near Woking on the Brookwood Necropolis Railway.
Three years after his death, 30th April 1806, the London Morning Chronicle carried this: 'Creditors of Rasmus Kleboe Taylor (sic) late of Gerard Street may receive a further dividend of 3/6d in the £'  so Erasmus was presumably a tailor. Bergette married Edward Humphreys Robnet on 30th December that year.
