Hope I'm spelling that right.

Does anyone know where this is? A bunch of my ancestors (Grønbeck and Nykirken) were apparently from there/were born there, but I can't find it on any modern maps, or even references to it anywhere _except_ the same records I found it on (Census and Parish records in the late 18th and early 19th century).

I know it was near Helsingør, in either Hornbæk or Tikøb parish (different records differ). Best I can figure the name means "Rifle Factory." Does anyone have any information or references they could point me to with information about this town/factory?
