Sten, which is mentioned for the first time on May 19, 1399, in preserved documents, never came to play any particularly prominent political role but rarely participated in Nordic Grand Duchy assemblies and Swedish council meetings. If one disregards that he is after his cousin Ture Stensson(see above 7) Death was chieftain of the Småland fortress Piksborg, he should have mainly devoted himself to the care of his individual earthly goods. These were many and significant. Thus he owned Viks, Örby and Ekholmens farms in Uppland, of which the first two had originally belonged to his mother's family, while Ekholmen joined him through the marriage with the notorious Karl Ulfssons to Tofta daughter. In addition, from 1419 he had Fågelvik in Småland, but the estate, which was also owned by Karl Ulfsson, came at the inheritance after S's first wife in 1429 to move to her son in the previous married, later King Karl Knutsson, whose guardian and foster father S. had been. - In keeping with his family's traditions, S. faced generosity against spiritual foundations. So for example. In 1419 he founded the wish of two prebends in Uppsala Cathedral in connection with his father's lifetime, and in Vadstena's monastery he is praised as a special benefactor of Birgitta's creation. On the other hand, he became the involuntary instigator of another monastery's abomination: according to a note from Stockholm Franciscan's calendar, he caused, through his "ignorantia", the latter monastery's fire an October night in 1424.

Of Stens children, two sons and three daughters, all born in marriage to Margareta Karlsdotter and thus half-siblings of King Karl Knutsson, reached mature age. The most significant of the sons was Ture Stensson, b. About 1416, d. 1439. During his later years he made himself very noted as one of Karl Knutsson's closest friends and confidants and participated diligently in the many ranks of 1435—39, from 1436 as a member by the National Council. Lagman in Uppland from 1437 or 1438, he was also introduced at the beginning of 1439 by Karl Knutsson as chieftain of the important Älvsborg, where in the following summer he triumphantly fought against a Norwegian siege army who wanted to recover the West Swedish fortress for King Erik but who at last as a result of the young palace chieftain's good-natured and valiant behavior with the great man pile must retreat. After this event, which is drastically and vividly portrayed in the Karl Skronikan, Ture Stensson made in the fall of 1439 to Karl Knutsson's summit in Tälge, where King Erik was definitely deposed. So, the Riksbank, along with his young half-brother, took a trip to Kalmar to take this castle into his possession. However, after traveling on a journey south of Nyköping, Ture Stensson fell short of time and died after a couple of days, probably October 23. (he was buried in Vadstena Oct 29). The writer of the Christian chronicle, who may have been close to him during his lifetime, interprets in seemingly personally known words the profound grief of Karl Knutsson and the whole of the Swedish people over the hopeful youngster's passing and characterizes him in this context as a "hero, male both in storm and battle "and abstained from everyone with whom he touched. Ture's probably younger brother Knut Stensson, d. 1451 (buried Nov. 11), became a knight at King Kristoffers crown 1441 and each later a national council and (probably 1450) lawyer in Uppland. After having received Axvall's castle county at Karl Knutsson's throne climb, he soon exchanged this (probably 1450) against Nyköping's castle and county. Married to Elin Gustavsdotter (Sture), who after his death (probably at the end of 1452 or at the beginning of 1453) remarried with later the Riksbank Erik Axelsson (Tott), he left as little as Ture Stensson had some children. Of the three sisters, Margareta Stensdotter was probably the oldest. She married in 1436 with Nils Stensson (Night and Day), the end of 1439, and would have survived her husband but was dead in 1451. Sister Birgitta Stensdotter, between 2 Jan. 1461 and June 4, 1464, stayed in before 29 August. 1438 entered into marriage with the knight and the government council Gustav Sture, d. 1444, mother of the governor Sten Sture d. Ä. Since she married in 1445 or 1446 with the knight and the national council Gustav Karlsson (gumsehuvud), she came through the brother Knut Stensson's death in 1451 in possession by Ekholmen, who has been his seat farm. At the same time, of S's other earthly goods, Vik went to the youngest daughter K.atarina Stensdotter, who in October. In 1438, the Danish knight and the national council Klas Nilsson (sparre) to Ällinge in Skåne and after his death 1458 lived at Vik. Örby, on the other hand, came to belong to their mother, S widow Agneta Eriksdotter, after S's trained child in the later marriage of the late age.
