About Brynhild Knutsdotter Nising

8140. Johannes* ÅSMUNDSSON Stokka(867) (766)(827) (767) was born about 1590 in Viland gård #30, Vikedal, Rogaland, Norway. He was leased his father-in-law's farm in 1617 in Stokka gård #139, Vats, Rogaland, Norway. He died in 1658 in Stokka gård #139, Vats, Rogaland, Norway. Lensmann Johannes Osmundsson Stokka was a renowned and wealthy man, the wealthiest man and largest landowner in the entire skiprede. In 1645, Johannes had 5 farm hands and 8 female servants. He was the lensmann in Vikedal from 1612 to 1622. Folk traditions about him and his wife, Brynhild, have survived right up to the present day.

It is said that Johannes and Brynhild had 28 children. Only 9 are known to have reached adulthood. Interestingly enough, Johannes had to pay a fine of 61/2 dalar in 1610, because his eldest son was born very shortly after their wedding.

Johannes started out with 41/2 laupar smør in 1610, but by 1658 he owned about 44 laupar. Both his parents owned considerable property and since he was the only child of his mother, he inherited her entire estate. He divided his father's estate with two half-brothers, although one of these died without issue and he inherited half of his estate also. But Johannes was also a shrewd businessman and acquired a considerable amount of property in addition to what he inherited. He seems to have made a lot of money selling lumber to Scottish merchants.

There is a pew in the old church in Vats in which "Brønela Knudsdatter 1637" is carved and there is a rosemaled board in the church which has Johannes' seal on it. There is also a large painting hanging in the church believed to portray Johannes, Brynhild and their alleged 28 children.

The origins of Johannes' family has been the subject of a great deal of genealogical research and scholarly study. Based on an exhaustive study of original records concerning land transactions, inheritances and tax payments, Einar Balle has made considerable progress in conclusively identifying the ancestors of Johannes. Mr Balle determined that Johannes' mother was the daughter of Arnbjørn Amundsson Ile and his father was Åsmund Eriksson Viland. Both appear to be descended from the ancient Norwegian noble families of Ingemund, Koll and Ænes. He was married to Brynhild* KNUTSDATTER Stokka in 1609 in Ryfylke, Rogaland, Norway.(640) (765)(640)

8141. Brynhild* KNUTSDATTER Stokka (868)(827) (767) was born about 1580 in Stokka gård #139, Vats, Rogaland, Norway. She was christened about 1581 in Vats, Rogaland, Norway.(640) She died in 1664 in Stokka gård #139, Vats, Rogaland, Norway.

  1. 2037

-------------------- Brynhild er kvinnen som er vist som moren til 28 barn (!!!) på epitafiumen "Stokkatavla" i Vats kirke. 9 av dem skal ha vokst opp.

Link til bilde av og informasjon om Stokkatavla: http://vatsnett.com/institusjonar/kyrkja.html

Se ellers mer omtale under mannen Johannes.

Det antatte fødselsåret til Brynhild er basert på at førstefødte ble født i 1610, og hun må nødvendigvis ha startet i morsrollen relativt tidlig.

Hun var selv eldst av to barn på Stokka, begge jenter. Søsteren Eli giftet seg med hennes egen svoger Jon Osmundsen Nes i Vikedal(broren til Johannes).

På en utskåret stoldør i kirken i Vats står det "BRØNELA KNUDSDATTER 1637"

Kilde: Soga om Vats, 1984, s. 594-5. -------------------- I følge koppskatten for 1645 betalte Johannes og Brynhild 5 ort. De hadde 5 drenger og 8 tjenestejenter dette året. Selv om noen av disse antageligvis har vært deres egne barn, tyder det på at det var en stor familie på Stokkagården på denne tiden. Brynhild skal ha vært meget aktiv i religiøst arbeid, og blir i en bok "Misjonen: velsigning i tusen ledd" beskrevet som misjonens mor. Forfatteren mener også å ha funnet at Brynhild kan føre sine aner tilbake til både Olav Trygvasson og kong Sverre. I kirken i Vats henger det et epitafium som blir kalt Stokkatavla. Det forestiller mann og kone med 28 barn. Det sies at det i generasjoner var tradisjon i Vats at lensmenn skulle ha mange barn. Dette høres ganske utrolig ut, og det var bare 9 av barna til Johannes og Brynhild som vokste opp.Det er sagt mye om Johannes i tingbøkene. Bl.a. måtte han i 1610 betale bot fordi kona ble for tidlig gravid.I 1612 ble han lensmann i Vats, og året etter eier han parter i 17 gårder. Han kjøper og makeskifter seg til enda mer:I 1626: parter i Ø. Helgeland på Sandeid 1627: makeskifter til seg nabogården Skjervheim 1633: parter i Heggem 1635: parter i Nerim i Suldal og Østebø i Sandeid 1640: pantebrev på 1/4 av Ørkesvåg Fiskeri i Sandeid.I 1618 er Johannes en av de lensmennene i Ryfylke som som leverte galeiane i Stavanger. Han drev handel med tømmer bl. a. til Skottland. Han er også lagrettsmann flere ganger.At han hadde penger går fram av at folk ved flere anledninger panta gården eller parter i gården hos han når de trengte kontanter.Er nevnt i boka om Bergesen-ætta side 49 av forfattar Ola Aursnes.
