Birth: Jun. 3, 1797
Södermanlands län, Sweden
Death: unknown, Sweden

Lars Magnus Winblad (1797-?) was a journeyman carpenter in Sweden. He was engaged to marry one woman, but got a second one pregnant. He married her after renouncing his engagement to his fiancé. (b. June 3, 1797, Västra Vingåker parish, Södermanland, Sweden - d. unknown, possibly Linköping, Sweden)

Lars Magnus used the family name "Wingblad" but his only living child, Anton, used the surname as "Winblad" and that is how it appears in his descendants. This alternate spelling of his name is "Lars Magnus Wingblad".

Lars Magnus Wingblad was born in Västra Vingåker parish in the county of Södermanland in Sweden on June 3, 1797.

Stockholm, Sweden:
The 1820 Sweden census has Lars Magnus Wingblad living in Stockholm, Sweden.

Lars Wingblad impregnated Brita Christina Ökneberg (1799-?) in November or December of 1822.

Lars became engaged to Anna Ericsdotter Wennström. They made their vows at Katarina parish on February 09, 1823. This was two or three months after impregnating Brita Christina Ökneberg.

First child:
Brita gave birth on August 10, 1823 to Carl Wilhelm Wingblad (1823-bef1830) just six months after Lars got engaged. Carl was baptized at Hedvig Eleonora parish, Stockholm, Sweden on Sunday, August 18, 1823. Lars and Brita were listed as "Gesellen Wingblad" and "Br. Chr. Oknaberg".

Break engagement:
At their own request Lars and Anna were released from their vow to marry on August 03, 1824. The record says: "after closer knowledge of each others temperament and reasoning they realized that a union of marriage would cause them both unhappiness". The real reason was Lar's child with Brita Christina Ökneberg. They had been engaged for one year and six months before it was broken off.

Lars, just two months later, married Brita Christina Ökneberg (1799-?) on October 10, 1824 at Katarina parish, Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden. She was born on September 28, 1797 at Torshälla parish, Södermanland, Sweden. Her parents were: Lars Ökneberg (c1750-?), a soldier; and Brita Olsdatter (c1750-?). He was listed as "Lars Magnus Wengblad" and she was listed as "Brita Christina Oknesberg".

Second child:
Their child, Anton Julius Winblad I (1828-1901), was born on October 08, 1828. Anton was baptized on October 11, 1828 in Stockholm at Maria Magdalena Church (Mariakyrkan).

Linköping, Sweden:
The 1830 household examination rolls show Lars working as a carpenter in Linköping, Sweden while Brita was still working as a maid in Stockholm, and living with her child Anton. By 1834 the rolls show that Brita and Anton joined Lars in Linköping, Sweden.

Lars may have died in Linköping, Sweden. No record of his death has been found to date.

Lars Magnus Wingblad (1797-?) was the third, great-grandfather of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
