About Birgit Sevartdatter Skiftun

4737. Bergitte or Birgit SAVATSDTR.(539) (540) was born about 1540 in Sandanger, Norway. (541) She died in 1626. Resident and then owner of the family farm of Skiftun (see Note for her father Sjovat for more information on Skiftun). First marriage to Olav. Administration & distribution of her estate ("skifte") recorded in Skiftun, Norway. (Slooper book) After Olav's death she married to the next farmer of the place.

Prior to this the "farm had been used as one 'bruk' (or farm)," but the widow Birgit, her granddaughter Ingeborg Ellingsdotter and her husband Alv or Orm Olavson (b. abt 1540 in Nesheim in Sjernarøy?) lived all on the farm in early 1600s. They probably used different parts of the farm. Later on Sjovat Olavson, son of Olav and Birgit, moved from Sandanger and took over the farm as an old man. He had the whole farm. His two sons got a part each; Ola got Norda Skiftun, the part north of the Skiftun creek, Hans got Søra (south) Skiftun." Ola's north part later became farms number 1 and 2; Hans southern section became farms number 3, 4 and 5.

Orm and Birgit had 2 children: Ola, who lived in Byrkjeland in Vikedal, and Ingrid, who married the Finnøy-priest Elling Simonson. Brigit may have survived her second husband, Orm, also. "She is listed as farmer (user of the farm) in the district lists (lensrekneskapa) 1603-1625. Kruna(?) owned one half ‘laup smør’ (smør = butter) in Skiftun, and of that Birgit payed the tredjeårsbygsel (third-year-usage) in 1603. She owned one laup in Skiftun in 1617. In 1624 she owned 4 laupar and 1 pund in four other farms. Her inheritance was distributed in 1625. The estate was well equiped, both in terms of land and in terms of goods like silver, pewter, bedding, cabinets, and chests. Among others there was «8 Malide Leritz thaffler» -- (no clue what that is). It was only valued to 2 dlr., but it anyway indicates a standard of living well above average." (Skiftun Bygdebok) Children were:

i. Sjovat Olavson SKIFTUN(542). " Sjovat Olavson moved here (Skiftun) from Sandanger. He is listed as farmer here from 1625 - 1637. His sons Ola and Hans took over one part each of Skiftun after their father. Ola may have taken over the part of his brother-in-law Tore when he moved to Sandanger. Hans is not listed as farmer here before after his fathers time, when his brother-in-law moved to Sandanger."

2368 ii. Holger Olavsen LINDANGER.
