Sør-Bindalen or Sørbindalen is a former administrative entity in the Namdalen district of Trøndelag, Norway. It was in existence from 1658 to 1852. It is located in the present-day municipality of Bindal in Nordland county.

History[edit]

The ancient district of Bindalen belonged to Namdalen. However in 1658, when the county (län) of Trondheim was ceded to Sweden in the Treaty of Roskilde, the status of the border district was ambiguous, with residents paying some taxes to Helgeland, in Nordland, and some to Namdalen. The decision was then made to redraw the county boundary to run down the fjord, assigning the northern part, Nord-Bindalen, to Nordland county, which remained in the Kingdom of Denmark-Norway, while the larger part remained in Trondheim county and became Sør-Bindalen and part of the Kingdom of Sweden.[2] The two remained separate after Trøndelag county was reunited with Norway in 1660.[3]

In 1815, a single parish of Bindalen was created from the larger parish of Brønnø, despite the secular division of the community.[4][5] Although the 1838 formannskapsdistrikt law divided the country into municipalities which were supposed to correspond to the church parishes, the parish of Bindalen (which straddled the county border) remained as the two separate municipalities of Nord-Bindalen and Sør-Bindalen. In 1853, they were merged as the new Bindalen municipality, and the county border was moved south so that all of Bindalen would be located in Nordland county.[6]

"Der kunde her tvistes om Bindalen, enten den skulde høre til Helgeland eller til Namdalen. Distriktet stod i et noget uklart Forhold; nogle Afgifter betalte dets Indbyggere til Fogden i Helgeland, andre til Fogden i Namdalen, saaledes at der med Grund kunde reises Tvivl om, hvor det rettelig hørte hen. Man enedes, efter nogen Forhandling om at dele Distriktet. Nogle af dets Gaarde henlagdes til Helgeland og forbleve Norske, medens den største Del, som hørende til Namdalen, skulde lyde under den svenske Krone."
