Hi Eunice,
i did a look in the Topographie of Schleswig-Holstein from 1855 and this is
was i found:

Hamfelde: (former Honvelde, Hannfelde), village at the river Bille, in the
duchy Lauenburg, in the Gut Basthorst, 2 1/4 miles ( old german miles )
southwest of Mölln, parish Kuddewoerde. In the village are 1 Farm, 5
Halfhufen, 2 threequarterhufen 4 Brinksitzerstellen ( don`t know how to
translate) and 10 Kathen (small houses). One school, 1 windmill, 3 hosts, 1
blacksmith. Until the year 1850 there was a extra-poststation, today ( 1855)
there is a station for the riding Mecklenburger post. Citizens: 240 people.
The ground is partly loamy soil, or sandy. Until the year 1801 there was a
Meierhof ( an external part of the Gutshof) Near Hamfelde are remainder of
a high rampart ( fortification).

Hoping this information can help you,

greetings from

Ute and Wolfgang
Bordeshlom, Schleswig-Holstein
