Rittergut = Ritter + gut = knight + estate or farmstead; thus, Rittergut = knightly estate (land)

My great grandmother is reported to have had to sell her deceased husband’s estate in Pomerania circa 1840.

The word Rittergut is used to describe this land holding.

Is Rittergut a place or proper name or is it a generic name for a large land holding ?
