Asker is probably a courtyard for a sibling group, which is due to A in the late 13th and early 14th century. B Matsson establishes 1274 testaments for himself and his wife Lucia on the 'Sätesgården A' (mansio) (DS 582). In 1289, Agnes Matsdotter establishes in her her will and gives money to the church and the vicar in Näs (DS 1007). In 1298 Rörik Matsson is mentioned in A (DS 1233); the same year writes, also to Tuna, this sn (DS 1215). Rörik is mentioned in 1287-96 as 'R by Sollentuna' (DS 949, 1744), which is related to the fact that he is the holder of the eleventh canonical at Uppsala Cathedral, to which Sollentuna church is the grant (DS 3850). Agnes son Jacob in A (ox head in broken shield) will bequeathing money to the church and the vicar in Näs, when his sons Harald and Birger were buried; they will now be moved to Sigtuna (DS 1614). In 1312, Jacob is mentioned in A widow Ingrid (DS 1856)

1384, Anund Jonsson (Lion's Face) surrenders his wife Ramborg lsraelsdotter's (Finsta-eden) estate in A to Vadstena monastery (RAP 10 / I 2; see Tuna).

In 1447, the interest rate was previously reported to have been 10 pounds of grain and 5: 0 for the two farms together. It is further stated that the two farms are settlers under Tuna. (VaKIJb)

A study of the village of Tuna on the Lennartsnäh peninsula, by Olle Södergren

Kloster donation 1384

A couple of generations later, we find a letter that gives us a clearer picture of the ownership conditions on the Lennartsnäshalvön during the 14th century. It can be seen here that the dragon Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta) and his heirs had gathered all the eastern part of the peninsula. In this gift letter, knight Anund Jonsson (Lion's Face) clarified that he fulfilled his deceased wife Ramborg Israel's daughter's (by Finstaätten) desire to donate the assets she received in the morning gift in her previous marriage to Vadstena monastery. This transaction included Tuna, Öråker and Asker, which probably means the entire eastern part of the peninsula. However, there is no indication of whether other settlements existed in the southeastern parts of the peninsula. Ramborg's former husband Filip Nilsson (Sparre of Tofta) was the son of Nils Abjörsson, and grandchild of the murderer Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta). The family had thereby acquired significant assets in the area during the 14th century. The properties were inherited by Filip Nilsson's wife Ramborg after his passing, and then on to her new husband Anund who completed her wish for the monastery donation. (SDHK-no: 12757) Here I want to link back to the original acquisition of the farm in Tuna 1307, where the dukes Erik and Valdemar donated the goods to their dragon Asbjörn Sixtensson (Sparre of Tofta). This transaction took place in the middle of the civil war called the Håtunaleken, where Erik, supported by Valdemar, sought to seize power from his younger brother King Birger Magnusson, and shortly thereafter he beheaded his guardian Torgils Knutsson. The dukes were allies with Norway while King Birger was allied with Denmark. In 1307, King Birger was imprisoned while the Duke brothers in January managed to negotiate a truce that lasted until December of the same year (Wadbring 2008). My interpretation is that the donation of Tuna to Asbjörn Sixtensson touched on the crown or the imprisoned king's property, which the duke brothers during the ceasefire suited to hand out to their allies, as a reward for their support. In another letter it appears that the dukes had donated another property in the parish a month earlier, namely Aspvik's mill a few kilometers from Tuna, which the king had used for his own use (DS 1548) according to the gift letter. I mean that it is possible and likely that the circumstances of Sixtensson's acquisition of Tuna are something that has remained in the memory of men and beyond. Possibly this has stigmatized the possession of the property and contributed to Ramborg Israel's daughter's desire to donate the property to the monastery Big eggs and possible medieval economy The ownership of the peninsula during the 13th century is unclear and I have found few clues that can say anything about the agriculture organization, but I believe that there can nevertheless be a basis for an interpretation. The supposed family group consisting of B. Matsson, Rörik Mattsson, Agnes Matsdotter and Jacob Agnesson owned properties both in Asker and Tuna at the end of the 13th century. Ashtrays are described with the term "mansione", while Asbjörn's gift items in Tuna are described with "curiam", both of which could indicate a large-scale farm operation with a subordinate home. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case. It can nevertheless be the name of a larger farm, without saying anything about the form of organization (see Hansson 2001 p.39). I want to make the interpretation with caution that Asker is the basis for the family group with the father Mats, who then put some of the homeowners in Tuna to their farm under the main farm in Asker. Based on my account of the background for Asbjörn's donated farm, I mean that it probably did not belong to the family from Asker, but was a crown goods at the time of the donation. Rörik Mattsson signed up to Tuna 1298 and the family from Asker thus also had a physical presence in the village, even when the time for the acquisition of this property is unclear. If the presumed crown goods in Tuna had conducted large-scale farming at the time of the acquisition, I mean that it would seem unlikely that one would have cut off parts of the goods for the benefit of an adjacent manor. I mean that this could be interpreted as an indication of farm operations in Tuna at the time of the Asker-based family acquisition. However, this does not preclude the fact that there has previously been a centralized operation of agriculture in the village under a main farm. The place name Tuna, like the name "curiam", can be said to support such an interpretation. Previous research has shown that it is possible to see a change in the organization of agriculture during the 13th century, where former large farms in some cases completely switched to rural farming and gave rise to the formation of villages. Villages that are later under single owners are said to be an indicator of previous economies of scale. (Berg 2003 p.94). At the end of the 14th century, Asbjörn Sixtensson's descendants owned the entire eastern peninsula. Whether or not the acquisition of Asker and other parts of these coherent major properties took place shortly after his entry into the village, or if it was an extended process is unclear. On the other hand, this can be assumed to have had significant consequences for the organization of farm operations. I understand that this change of ownership represents a shift between what can be called a low-resident to a high-resident. This is a term that has been coined in the past for various status layers within the salvation, where the low-salvation had a tangible local anchorage and presence in the village, and no alternative main yard. The High Redeemer, on the other hand, had many other possessions, and thus did not have the same presence or anchorage in the local countryside, nor his identity attached to the property in the same way. (Hansson 2001 p.46) I mean that the family from Asker seems to have been based in the village, and thus probably drove agriculture on their own under the family farm in Asker. Furthermore, I mean that it is likely that Asbjörn Sixtensson with descendants had a much more modest presence, and relied on passive taxation of independent countrymen. Asbjörn Sixtensson's original donation from the duke brothers shows that in addition to the farm in Tuna he also received a number of other properties, including a manor in Vikbolandet and all the mills in Torshälla.

The gift of the great possessions on the Lennartsnal peninsula to Vadstena monastery in 1384 marks the start of a long period of ecclesiastical ownership of the eastern part of the peninsula, which contributed to keeping the property together.
