History[edit | edit source]
Luleå parish was formed around 1330 by breaking out of Piteå parish.
The following congregations have broken out of the church: - Tornio parish around 1340 (later called Nedertorneå) - Kalix parish 15th century (later called Nederkalix) - Jokkmokk parish 1607 - Råneå parish 1642 - Luleå stadsförsamling 1667 (later called Luleå domkyrkoförsamling) - Överluleå parish 1831
Luleå parish changed its name to Luleå county parish in connection with the formation of Luleå city parish in 1667 and to Nederluleå parish when Överluleå parish was added in 1831. The parish name was spelled until 1909 Neder-Luleå.
The parish has been divided into the following pastorates: - around 1330-1340 annex parish to Piteå parish - around 1340- to the beginning of the 15th century Luleå (mother parish), Piteå and Torneå (Nedertorneå) - beginning of the 15th century to 1413 Luleå (mother parish) and Tornio - 1413-1617 the parish constituted its own pastorate - 1617-1642 Luleå (mother parish) and Jokkmokk - 1642-1655 Luleå (mother parish), Råneå and Jokkmokk - 1655-1667 Luleå (mother parish) and Jokkmokk - 1667-1693 Luleå county (mother parish), Luleå city council and Jokkmokk - 1693-1888 Luleå County Council (later Nederluleå) and Luleå City Council - on May 1, 1888, Nederluleå parish formed its own pastorate.
Between Nederluleå parish and Luleå cathedral parish, areas have been transferred across the parishes. Of the apartments Ön or Stadsön and Hermansängen, belonging to Luleå city donation land but located within Nederluleå parish, Hermansängen is included in the city. The inhabitants of Stadsön were registered in the church in Nederluleå parish and previously paid the church and municipal fees partly to the country and partly to the city. By royal letter on 10 June 1892, it was decided that the island or Stadsön would from the beginning of 1893 belong both in ecclesiastical and municipal terms to Nederluleå parish, and partly that the so-called Svartöhemmanet or 3/64 mantal Björsby nr 6 and within the area of Luleå city harbor located nine specified islets would be transferred from Nederluleå parish to Luleå city.
By royal letter on 18 May 1894, 3/16 mantle Notviken and the 3/16 mantle broken out from Nederluleå pastoral residence, which was allocated to pay land for the parish priest in Luleå city, from the beginning of 1895 separated from Nederluleå parish and transferred to the city.
According to a royal letter on 31 March 1932, from 1933 certain areas of Nederluleå parish, including Svartöstaden's municipal community and Skurholmsstaden, were transferred to Luleå city. At the same time, part of the city belonging to the parcels was transferred to Nederluleå parish.
On January 1, 1974, Hertsö village and parts of Björkskatan were transferred from Nederluleå parish to Örnäset parish (which had been formed in 1962 by dividing Luleå cathedral parish).
Kallax and Notviken, which later belong to the city of Luleå, are listed in Nederluleå parish's house examination books.
For the archive list, there is a scanned list of villages and farms that are included in the house examination books. The list also states which parish the area came to belong to after the parish division in 1831 (Nederluleå parish parish and Överluleå parish, from Överluleå parish 1890 Edefors parish was broken out and the list also states if the area later belonged to that parish).
