I 1652 fekk Anbjørn Ile i Ilsvåg tinglese eit pantebrev, utskrive året før. Han hadde lånt ut så mykje som 612 dalar til Gunnar Romsaland og Tore Gjerde mot pant i Ile. Tre år etter at dette pantebrevet blei skrive ut, møtte Gunnar på eit målestemne på Ile i Ilsvåg. Der var han med på å leggja fram "enn deell gamell Pergementz breffue" om eldre eigedomsforholdet på Ile, slektsgarden hans. Ved manntala kring midten av 1660-åra, budde Gunnar på dette gardsbruket saman med sønene Rasmus som var soldat, Torbjørn og Rasmus d.y.
