History[edit | edit source]

Töre split from Nederkalix parish in 1909.[1]

(2) Töre parish was formed on 1 May 1909 by breaking out of Nederkalix parish. The parish constituted its own pastorate.

On 1 January 1929, the parish was divided into two church accounting districts: Töre church accounting district (Töre church archives) and Morjärv's church accounting district (see Morjärv's church archives). The division of Töre parish into two church registration districts remained until the population register was transferred to the tax authorities on 1 July 1991. The districts were abolished in connection with that change.

At its inception, Töre parish included the following villages and farms: Bjumisträsk, Bondersbyn or Bondeborg, Bredträsksund with Kamlungeträsk, Flakaträsk västra, Gallbergsträsk, Kamlunge, Kosjärv, Stora Lappträsk or Bredviksudden, Lappvik, Långfors, Marieberg or Sång, Smång, Sångrä, Sångrä , Törböle, Töre, Veniksel, Västanfors, Ytermorjärv, Bredfors, Grundforsbäcken, Hataträsk, Holmselet, Idbäcken, Lagaträsk, Mjöträsk, Moåtjälen, Rånön, Bergön, Småsel and Tjäruträsk as well as numerous apartments, islets and skerries.

Töre was separated from Nederkalix on 1 January 1924 in municipal and land register terms.

Räktfors and Räktjärv are included in Överkalix's house interrogation books, which are later included in Töre parish.
