I found this reference for a position when dealing with a death record for a potential ancestor. He was referred to as Corporal for much of the late 1700's in other Digital Archives. Trying to confirm I think it has something to do with Federal but unsure.

føderåd support received after giving ones estate to another,
the retirement agreement, also named as "kår" = kaar"
Kår - føderåd

of the farm by contract made on the sale
(see "kår")
