The island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea to the east of Denmark was fought over by Sweden and Denmark during the 1600's. The main industries were fishing, arts and crafts such as glass production and pottery, and dairy farming. Dramatic rock formations in the north, sloping down towards pine and deciduous forests and farmlands in the middle, and sandy beaches in the south. There is a ruin of Hammershus fortress in the NW tip of the island, the largest medieval fortress in northern Europe.

Dreyer ancestors come from the mainland of Jutland (Starup), and from the island of Bornholm (between Sweden and Poland/Germany, but belonging to Denmark), and from the southern county of Sweden (Ville and Hovby).
