you are right when you think there are two lines of Andersen in Klægsbøl (nowadays Klixbüll in the north of Germany).
Anders Sønnicksen was ennobled march 29 1452 and his descandents take the last name "von Andersen" after that time.
Momme Andersen born 1484 in Tønder was a merchant and town councillor, thats the meaning of raadmand.
One of his sons was:
1. Anders Momsen merchant and town councillor in Tønder. His wife was may be named Margaret.
After killing a nobleman in self-defence on sunday the 8 july 1554 he had to leave the country. He died 1559 in foreign abroad.
The only child of him who is named is:
Thomas Andersen merchant in Tønder.
Died may 2. 1588, 45 years old. He was married with Catharina Jensen died september 8. 1608, 56 years old.

I hope this Information will help you a little bit to clear.
Ancestors of Momme Andersen are un known. Churchbooks will not be available for that time.
It is very unlikely that there is a relationship between Momme Andersen and Anders Sønnicksen.
