("family matter and nation, simultaneously")

The Engwall family (Swedish pronunciation: [ɛːŋːvˈǎll] ) is a prominent Swedish family descended from Jonas Engwall, an inventor and engineer. The Engwalls are noted as merchants, industrialists, scholars, bankers, politicians, activists, bureaucrats, military officials, philanthropists, economists, and diplomats.[1]

The earliest known patrilineal member of the Engwall family is Anders Jönsson, a peasant farmer who, before his enrollment in the Jämtlandsdragon regiment in 1746, during the Age of Liberty was granted knighthood.[2] Due to constant famine during the 18th century the family relocated to Karlberg Palace.

In the early 19th century the family relocated to Gävle after the royal supervisors of the Karlberg Palace Court chased out Jonas II, Anders Jönsson's grandchild, due to the fear that he would disrupt the Swedish Royal Courts monopoly on row-traffic between Karlberg and Kungsholmen.[3]

In Gävle the family established themselves as Engwall. Victor Theodor Engwall son of Jonas Engwall opened the trade house Vict. Th. Engwall Co. in 1853.[4] The trade house later established the coffee brand Gevalia, today the largest coffee brand in Sweden (accounting for 40% of the coffee market).[5]

In the early 20th century the family saw exponential growth with the rise of Kreuger & Toll.[3] Paul Toll the 50% shareholder of Kreuger & Toll and owner of Hufvudstaden AB later married Gunhild Engwall the oldest daughter of the Engwall family.[6][7]

In the early 20th century the Engwall family founded the Middle Swedish Chamber of Commerce (Swedish: Mellansvenska Handelskammaren), an investment arm that currently encompasses a $14 billion logistics network.[8]

The Engwall family, through the Engwall Foundations, allocate annually SEK 1 billion towards poverty alleviation, cancer research, and educational programs. The Jacob Engwall Donation Foundation, managed by the Middle Swedish Chamber of Commerce, has since 1987 committed over SEK 1.8 billion towards various charitable endeavors.[9]

Early history

The earliest known patrilineal member of the Engwall family is Anders Jönsson Hanström (1726–1797), a peasant farmer who, after his enrollment in the Jämtlandsdragon regiment in 1746, during the Age of Liberty, was granted knighthood .

Ingegärd Olofsdotter af Revsund o Brunflo (1780–1833), who married into the Jämtlandsdragon regiment knighthood, Ingeborg Olofsdotter (1783–1841), Brita Olofsdotter af Ragunda (b. 1801), Olof Olofsson (1786–1850), Anders Olofsson (1789–1836). In 1794, Jöns Olofsson (1791–1794), the family's third son was declared dead due to malnutrition following the Great Famine of 1770. In an attempt to invoke prosperity and better times the forthcoming child was to be named Engwall, symbolizing "meadow field". In 1794, in the parish of Ragunda in Jämtland, Jonas Olsson Engwall was born, the first Engwall.

"The first Engwall - Jonas Olsson Engwall, my father and the first bearer of the Engwall name, possessed an insatiable desire to explore the world beyond his humble beginnings. Determined to venture forth, he embarked on a journey at a tender age, making his way to Sundsvall where he secured lodgings as a shopboy. After a year, his thirst for knowledge and new experiences led him to Gävle, where he found an apprenticeship under the tutelage of an elderly blacksmith named Tullström. Devoting himself to the craft, Jonas spent six years honing his skills under Tullström's guidance, eventually attaining the esteemed title of journeyman. Eager to perfect his trade and ascend to the rank of master

, he opted to remain in Tullström's service. However, fate intervened when he crossed paths with his future beloved. Bound by the restrictions imposed by guild regulations, Jonas would have had to wait two more years before he could marry as a "master blacksmith". Driven by love and a burning desire to forge a life together, Jonas made a life-altering decision. He resolved to expedite his independence and establish his path. With great determination, he set forth to Stockholm, yearning to become a self-reliant man at the earliest opportunity. The object of his affection was Catharina Christina Bollner, the daughter of a respected commissioner hailing from Trönö parish in Hälsingland. In pursuit of his aspirations, Engwall enrolled as a student at the prestigious veterinary institute. Diligently applying himself, he mastered the art of farriery, graduating with distinction as a seasoned master farrier. Thus, Jonas Olsson Engwall embarked on a transformative journey that would shape his life, fueled by a hunger for exploration, love, and the pursuit of expertise in his chosen vocation."

— Victor Theodor Engwall, the Engwall chronicle, 1908, p. 2

Länsmuseet presents a slightly divergent narrative of Jonas Engwall's life. Länsmuseet claims that Jonas Engwall initially started his professional career as a farrier, and swiftly progressed to the rank of journeyman before relocating to Gävle. In 1825, upon returning to Gävle from Stockholm Jonas Engwall achieved the coveted status of a master farrier. After settling in Gävle, Jonas Engwall purchased a farm and took the vow of marriage.[3]

Jonas Engwall lost 6,000 Riksdaler, equivalent to SEK 3,000,000 ($300,000) as of 2000, due to failed shipbuilding ventures. To recover the financial losses he conducted mechanical experiments. Jonas Engwall was scouted and later employed by P.C. Rettig & Co. At P.C. Rettig & Co, a company specializing in manufacturing tobacco machines, Jonas Engwall built machinery for the factory in Gävle and in Finland. In 1835, Jonas Engwall began experimenting with water-powered "perpetuum mobile".[3]

Jonas Engwall decided to relocate to Stockholm. In Stockholm, an employer had promised him a certain freedom to experiment while engineering machinery. The company later failed to fulfill the promise, resulting in Jonas Engwall only producing one machine before resigning. In 1836, he discovered a suitable opportunity in Southern Sweden.[3]

Karlberg Palace

In the 1830s, Jonas Engwall faced setbacks while venturing into new markets. He faced bankruptcy after an unscrupulous supplier failed to deliver cannon bearings to the artillery. In 1837, he secured a position as a blacksmith at Karlberg. Jonas Engwall obtained a patent for his propeller invention. The following year, he successfully constructed a smaller boat with the assistance of a newly formed company. Jonas Engwall then acquired Karlberg Palace Western Wing and obtained affluence. The Royal Court of Sweden which had held a monopoly on rowing traffic between Karlberg and

Patent and Registration Office.[11]

In 1839, the Engwall family fled Stockholm. The family, accompanied by their 12-year-old son, Victor Theodor Engwall, returned to Gävle.
