The HisKi project tells me the following about my 4th Great-Grandparents marriage:

16.2.1806 Hem:bruk tillträdande drg. Matts Mattss: Kocko P: Sophia Albertina Altin

Does anyone have clues as to what the occupations "Hem:bruk tillträdande drg" and "P:" are?

bruk tillträdande means "wear was accending" in Swedish according to an online translator

Thank you!

P stands for "maid or servant girl"

Mats was a "farm hand" or "hired man" who worked at that house"

Yes, this is correct: Matts Mattsson take up one's duties as
fram hand and P means Piga= Maid

Quite often P=piga seems to mean any unmarried woman including farmers daughters.
