About Ole Hansen Fatland

translated from p 299 Kvinnherad bygdesoga Author: Vaage, Erling, 1917-; Havnelid, Anders, 1929-

1 Ola Hansson, 1696-1772, married Brita Monsdotter (nedre Aksdal) (2), 1701-1783, bought one part of the farm Fatland and was registered self owner 1733. Ola was the son of Hans Olsson Brekke in Granby and mother Anna Katharina Rieber. Ola grew up on Unneland Ulvik, where his parents lived. He came to Fatland by a switch of farms in 1724 between himself and his brother Anders, who at the switch got the family farm in Ulvik.


Ola Hansson was eventually a very well off man. Mora (his mother) was the daughter of the daughter of Laurits Johannesson Galtung on Torsnes. John (Johannes) was for some time a time bailiff of Halsnøy monastery goods and Hardanger County. Laurits was a large land owner, and some of the heritage of Ola Hansson had probably originated in the legacy of his great grandfather on Torsnes, and grandfather, Reverend Anders Andersen Rieber in Eidfjord.

Here in the district Ola owned farms Fatland, nedre Aksdal, Østhus, Kambe and southern Sydnesplassen. These farms he gave in turn and order by donation letter to his sons and daughters and their husbands.

FOLKET PÅ FATLAND ETTER 1700

1 Ola Hansson, 1696-1772, g m

Brita Monsdotter nedre Aksdal (2), 1701-83, kjøpte det eine bruket på Fatland og vart registrert som sjølveigar 1733.

Ola var son til Hans Olsson Brekke i Granvin og mor Anna Katharina Rieber. Ola var opp- vaksen på Unneland i Ulvik, der foreldra budde.

Han kom til Fatland ved eit makeskifte 1724 mellom seg og broren Anders, som ved bytet fekk farsgarden i Ulvik.

Ola Hansson vart etter kvart ein 'svært velhal- den mann. Mora var dotterdotter til Laurits Johannesson Galtung på Torsnes. Johannes var ei tid fogd over Halsnøy klostergods og Hardanger len. Laurits var ein stor jordeigar, og noko av medelen til Ola Hansson hadde nok utspring i arv etter oldefaren på Torsnes, og bestefaren, sokneprest Anders Andersen Rieber i Eidfjord.

Her i distriktet åtte Ola Fatland nedre Aksdal, Østhus, Kambe og søre Sydnes utanom Fat- land. Desse gardane gav han frå seg i tur og orden ved gåvebrev til sønene og døtrene sine og mennene deira.
