Enligt en tidig utredning om släkten gjord på 1950-60 talet av Erik Olof Vilhelm Stockhaus (f. 1887), [1] kom smeden Hans Stockhaus från Münster i Westfalen till Sverige 1582. Han värvades sannolikt till Stensta Bruk i Fellingsbro sn, som var en av de första hammarsmedjorna som inrättades av Gustaf Vasa.

I roterings och utskrivningslängd för Fellingsbro förekommer sönerna Adam och Anders. Adams söner Hans och Johan kallas ännu 1647 för tyskar.[2]


Research by Erik Olof Vilhelm Stockhaus (b. 1887) in the 1950-60's indicates that Hans Stockhaus came from Münster in Westfalen to Sweden 1582. He was probably recruited to Stensta bruk (forge) in Fellingsbro parish, a forge that the King Gustav Vasa had established.[1][2].

There are two known sons of Hans Stockhaus in Fellingsbro: Adam and Anders. Adam's sons are still called Germans in 1647.

  • 1548 Stensta hammer was founded by Gustav Vasa
  • Abt 1582 Hans Stockhaus came from Münster to Sweden and worked at Stensta bruk[2]
  • 1590 son Anders Stockhaus was born
  • 1593 son Adam Stockhaus was born
