The farm Nes has its name after the great nest that expands in the North Sea and is now called Nesodden. Here are many farms today, but Nes is the oldest of them all. It must have been a farm at Nes all before Christ's birth, in the oldest age of farm in this country, as it is known from stories and narratives. Nes was a single farm until the Viking Age. (Approx. 800-1000 AD). The farm was divided into three, southern, middle and north Nes. In the Old Norse era, even more farms were divided from the three old Nesgarden. But in the desert after the Black Death, most of the divorced farms were added to a few farms that were claimed. These farms were Søndre og Nordre Nes, Østgården and Vestgården, Kjørkjestugu (middle nes) and Hesthag., In total 6 farms. They all had a blame of 4 TD each. grain in the 1500s and later. From ancient times, powerful generations must have been linked to Nes, which, from nature's side, is well equipped and is particularly central and strategic to the North Sea. On Nes has a more strange place name that must be from pagan times. Outside Torslund, Torslundstand and Torslunstigen you have the unique Hildshågå, the hollow of the holy hilt. This is a name as a setter associated with Eddakvadet and the mysterious eating circle Hildingane. The Hyndlujod squad tells about the origins of Hilding hætta. The king of Halvdan was a forefather of Harald Grendske, who was the grandfather of Halvdan Svarte, father of Harald Hårfagre. The sagas have a lot of ancient letters (D.N) clearly defined to the settlements around the North Sea and the nearest waterways. Heddal and Bø were the outskirts of Grenland. Harald Hårfagre gave his son Bjørn Farmann a raid over Grenland, and then his landlord there for the sake and possession. Much indicates that Nes was one of the kingdoms of the ancient rulers of Grenland. The story that Nes was a royal estate is therefore probably right. From Bjørn Farmann went madly and flew over to his son Gudrød. He got a good married name, it's called in the saga.

Secure information about the people at Nes, we will first get from the 1300s. At that time, the storm man played from Hestbø on Finnøy in Ryfylke farm. Hestbø had a strong connection with Sudreim in Rome. At Sudereim there was one who called Jon and he was the father of Ivar Rova. He had at least three sons. The eldest, Sigurd became a lendmann in Ryfylke and got the big horse farm Hestbø on Finnøy as a lion god. Through several poems, the Horsemen became known as many landlords in southern Norway and south western Norway. But the only landlord that one knows about has belonged to the actual men's line from Sigurd Ivarson., Is Prestholt and Nes in Nesherad. Ivar Ogmundson was the son of Sigurd Ivarson's son. Mr. Ivar was the Governor of the Skiing Syslaw from 1335. He was sitting on the Dags Family's old family farm Bratsberg, which was probably his own and not good-bye. Mr. Ivar was married to Mrs Kristin Toresdtr. and had two daughters. Both married in 1341. One was Kristin and married the Swedish armed forces Nils Magnusson to Turku in Sødermannland. The other can not be other than Cecilia on Nes, first married to the hirsman Torleiv Saksabjørnson at Lindheim, and later with Vetrlide Borgarson from Hem in Sauherad. After the information one has, Nes and several farms who have gone out of Nes must have heard of Mr. Ivar and his posterity. If Nes was one of the royal farms of Harald Grendske, it is good that this farmhouse was excluded for so long.
