They ended up having 10 children in 21 years. 4 of which is known to have died before adulthood. He worked as a blacksmith his whole life and passed this craft onto many of his sons.

At the age of 74 he passed away in Stora Herrestad on September 29, 1793 and was buried on October 6th.[4]

He was the first known person to have taken the name Herrstedt, probably derived from the name of his hometown Herrestad and passed this name on to all his children.
