Eyrbyggja saga says:

Ketill flatnefur gifti Auði dóttur sína Ólafi hvíta er þá var mestur herkonungur fyrir vestan haf. Hann var sonur Ingjalds Helgasonar en móðir Ingjalds var Þóra, dóttir Sigurðar orms í auga, Ragnarssonar loðbrókar.

in English:

Ketil Flatneb gave his daughter Auth to Olaf the White, who at that time was the greatest war-king West-over-the-sea; he was the son of Ingiald, the son of Helgi; but the mother of Ingiald was Thora, the daughter of Sigurd Worm-in-eye, the son of Ragnar Hairy-breeks.
