In the second entry here (Common Pleas 1563), the plaintiff is Magnus Fryse or Fryze, "of Townder in the land of Holster, merchant". Any idea where this might be?

Perhaps Tønder (Toender) in the Duchy of Schleswig (now in Denmark)?
Since Schleswig and Holstein were then governed as a single entity,
albeit jointly by the King of Denmark and his uncles as Dukes, it is
easy to see that the whole could be mistakenly described as "Holstein".
