Looking for the descendants of Sigvard Grubbe who built the Castle in what is now Torup, Malmo, Sweden. This area was once part of Denmark.
My grandmothers uncle, Dr. Emil H. Grubbe, of Chicago, Illinois, stated he was the 8th generation down from him.
Would like to know if this is true or not.
Dr. Grubbe said he was once offered the title of Baron but refused it. There is a write up with a picture of the Castle in the 1934 National Geographic Magazine on pg.10,where it states that Sigvard Grubbe was a friend of the King. This was in the year 1632.
If anyone has any other information regarding Sigvard Grubbe and his descendants, I would like to hear from you.
