History[edit | edit source]

Bygdeå parish has medieval origins. In connection with the formation of Burträsk parish in 1604, the villages Krokvattnet, Andersvattnet, Bygdsiljum, Lubboträsk and Gårckträsk were transferred from Bygdeå to Burträsk. At about the same time, Vibbesmark was transferred to Lövånger parish.

1624 Nysätra parish and 1799 Robertsfors parish were separated from Bygdeå parish.

Bygdeå parish was divided on January 1, 1930 into two church registration districts; Bygdeå Church Accounting District (Bygdeå Church Archives) and Överklintens Church Accounting District (see Överklintens Church Archives). The division was valid until June 30, 1991, when the population register was transferred to the tax authorities.

The Robertsfors mill area with surrounding villages was transformed in 1917 from a mill parish to a special chapel parish. Robertsfors parish had a common finances and a common school system with Bygdeå parish.

Bygdeå parish constituted its own pastorate until 1624 and then formed a joint pastorate with Nysätra parish and from 1799 also with Robertsfors parish. In 1821, Nysätra parish formed its own pastorate and Bygdeå and Robetsfors parishes then formed a joint pastorate. By the middle of the 20th century, Bygdeå and Robertsfors also formed a church community.

The documents of the pastorate and the community are recorded in Bygdeå church archives.

On October 9, 1947, Bygdeå vicarage burned down, damaging or destroying some documents belonging to the church archives. The Bygdeå church archives include several volumes that cannot be used due to fire damage.

The villages Trågaliden, N. Stortjärn and Älglund were transferred from Burträsk to Bygdeå in 1872, administratively only from 1874.

Ivarsboda village belonging to Bygdeå parish, enjoyed from 1835 s.k. church law in Sävar. From 1891, Ivarsbodan 1 and 2 were also transferred in the municipality and in the land register from Bygdeå to Sävar. In 1902, Ivarsbodan 3 was transferred from Bygdeå to Sävar.

From Sävar to Bygdeå, the kronony buildings Södra Sönäs, Gräsnäs, Sävträsk and Ösjön were transferred according to the county administrative board's decision in 1869 and the Chamber of Deputies' confirmation in 1870.

In 1870, the homestead Slyberget, Lugnet and Skursjön were transferred from Bygdeå to Burträsk.

From 1931, certain smaller areas, property plots for the homestead Norum 1 and 2 were separated from Bygdeå and incorporated into Sävar.

In the scanned history, there are reported villages that are recorded in several parishes' house examination books.
