Above the entry for a distant cousin and husband on two Maxmoby rippikirja is that notation underlined. He is Hans Pehrsson born 18.1.1766 in Rökio, Vörå and wife Anna Isaksdotter Puss born Ö Maxmo 31.3.1771. Help, please.

Former tenant.
Dictionary explains: åbo = farm tenant with fixity of tenure.
Not same as landbonde or torpare, which are often translated the same.

Thank you, Jaska. I can always count on you. The on-line translations didn't make sense.
