Sy Scholfield cites church records: "Anno 1699 d. 30 Novembr: ved 6 Slet om morgenen blef hendis Majt. dronning Louise forlöst med en ung Printz, som om eftermiddagen ved 5 Slet blef döbt af hans Majt. Confessionario D. Peter Jespersön, og kaldet Christian. Hendis Majs. Enke=dronningen, Charlotta Amalia holt ham over daaben. Gud lade ham gaae frem fra dyd til dyd, og blive en Printz efter hans eget hierte. (Anno 1746 d. 6 August behagede det den Allerhöyeste Gud at henkalde denne Höysalige Herre til et bedre og lyckeligere Rige i Himmelen paa Hirschholms Slot)"
