Næsbyhoved-Broby Church is a church in Næsbyhoved-Broby Parish in Odense Municipality. The church is late Romanesque, but first appears in preserved sources in the first half of the 1300s, when a Mrs. Margareta gave it some gifts. In 1482 it was testified at a parish convention in the village that Hans Barsebek's ancestors had both had the church built and donated the land on which it was erected, as well as the rectory. Consequently, Hans Barsebek was recognized as the owner of the church. It remained in the possession of his increasingly distant descendants until 1578, when Christoffer Valkendorf of Glorup exchanged it with King Frederik II. However, the change of power declined after Valkendorf's death, and the church was probably owned by this family until 1661. After that, it was in alternating ownership until the transition to freehold on January 1, 1916.

Lumby Church is a church in Lumby Parish in Odense Municipality. Its oldest parts are probably from the 1200s, and the parish is mentioned as early as 1231 in King Valdemar's Land Book, where it belonged to the king's ancestral estate. The estate passed down to Valdemar the Victorious's nephew, Otto of Brunswick-Lünenburg, and when his heirs' sale of the estate was confirmed in 1300, it is mentioned that the estate also included "what in the vernacular is called the church", i.e. probably the right of patronage. It apparently returned to the Crown in 1357 and later lay to Næsbyhoved.
