About Ole Ericksen Pukstad





Gnr. 28 It approx. The 1550-acre farm is located in the middle of Åsbygda between Helset, no. 27, on the southwest side, and Solem, gnr. 29, on the opposite edge. Towards the northwest Støter outcuts the parish boundary between Rissa and Stadsbygd. Towards the south-west the choice borders a short distance to Bliksås, no. 54, and for a longer stretch towards Askjem, no. 19. As for the other farms in Åsbygda, it is chalky and consists of several weathered younger rocks, this has provided nutrient-rich soil. Especially in earlier times when there was no fertilizer, soil quality was an important resource. The farm name hides an old Norwegian personal name in the first paragraph. Puke or Puki is known as the first place in farm names in Eastern Norway. As usual in the writing era, the form of writing has varied a lot, but largely not much. In the settlement, the name “p o k k s t a” is pronounced with two-spell tone layers. The farm name, size and location in the terrain indicate that it was in the early Viking age that the farm was "founded". In the Middle Ages, the Archdiocese gained ownership interests in the farm. Michel and Cathri rehearsing eight approx. half of Pukstad to far out in the 1600s. This ownership share then went over to the bishop. The other half was the Stadsbygd church that had the income. A small proportion of 6 ground layers belonged to Reins Kloster. A little out of the ordinary was that this owner part yardage to a specific area of the farm. It was called “Reinsdelen”, and was located along the border with Solem. After the fall in the late Middle Ages, the blame came down into 1 team of 6 ground layers. It was the probate party, later the bishop, who had the right of inheritance and thus the large additional income from the change of ownership

(first). That party was the most valuable. This was clearly expressed at the sale in 1861. The builder Ole Eriksen paid 200 dollars together for the 18 land layers that the church eight and the 3 land layers belonging to the Reinsklosteret, while the part of the 18 land layers the bishop had to pay for 350 dollars. The same relationship prevailed when Olbert Nilsen was allowed to buy the second farm on the farm a few years later. The farm was divided into two uses at the end of the 1500+ century, and the dough mix from that division, lasting until 1826. There was then a land change and the establishment of the present boundaries. The old common house was located on the site of Tuftan, a mountain mound just above and southwest of no. 28/1. At the turn of the century, the two had already moved to the present plots. On the old site, only Anders Olsen's living room was left. It is likely that this Anders is identical to Anders Olsen, born 1779, married Anne Olsdtr. Sørvik, see no. 28/1.

PUKSTAD Farm Book Number III Starting with page 235

The farm is the northernmost of the two farms in the Pukstad farm area. The total area is approx. 800 acres, the agricultural area is 170 acres, distributed on 66 acres of easy-to-use, and 49 acres of less-used land. In addition, 54 acres of land are used for grazing. The forest floor is approx. 300 acres, roughly equally distributed between high, medium and low quality. It is approx. 300 acres of other land, mostly on a low productive basis. Some plant fields are in good growth, but 140 acres can still be counted as forest clearing land, the Land Register shows. As usual, the agricultural area for the farm in Åsbygda is considered too high in the land register. A more correct figure for this use is 85 acres of plowed land and 15 acres of pasture. The yard is 185 m above sea level.

I. 1520. Erik Pukstad Erik is the first user we know. He paid the extra tax in 1520 with one and a half marks money, which was somewhat less than the average for the farm in the village. The Pukstad farm area was one user.

Berdor paid the extra tax to the King's war fleet with the usual equalized amount of 1 dollar. He had a daughter, Anne, who later shows up at the neighboring farm and creates some problems. In leidang and national debt, 7 1-2 fields delivered butter and half a pound of flour annually.

She did not get good publicity in 1619 when she had children with a husband Oluf at the neighboring farm. Both Anne and Oluf were fined. A daughter, Ellen Eriksdatter, married Ole Jensen Pukstad, two users following.

Was Anne Berdorsdtr. Pukstad married to both Erik Pukstad and also Jens Pukstad ? I think this is possible ! ! And she runs the farm for the 6 years that is said (between 1616 and 1622) ? ? ?

IV. 1622-1657 Jens Pukstad M. Anne We know the name of four children in the family: Ole, Randi, Marit and Magnhild. There is probably a relationship with the previous family, but we have no conclusive evidence. In the season, Jens fishes fish in Stjørna and Bjugn, shows a tithe list. When collecting the meat tax in 1657, the herd was divided between Jens and his son Ole, the next user. At Jens were brought 2 horses, 2 cows, 2 goats and 2 sheep, the rest is under the next user.
