Biography

Svein was born in 1714. He was married to Sara Engebrictsdatter 2 November 1741 in Finnås, Hordaland, Norway.[1] He passed away in 1791. [2]

Svein took over the farm Boroy when his fosterfather died and was thefarmer there until 1767, when he let the fosterson got the farm. Afterthis, Svein moved to the farm Straumoy (no. 4). Svein inherited one partin the farm after his fosterfather, the rest he leased. He owned one partin the north Meland farm and in Stokkvikjo.[3]

According to the Fjeldberg Bydgebok, Svein was the farmer at farm #1 ofArnevik a couple of years after the death of his own father; in turn,Svein farmed Arnevik until his death in 1791. The Bomlo Bygdebok,however, indicates that although Svein had alodial rights to his father'sfarm home in Arnevik, he let his brother Hans live and work on the home farm. In any case, Svein was an enterprising fellow to have interests in properties scattered across the area. He was also a court official.[4]

Svein died in 1791 at the age of seventy-seven. After his death, it islikely that Sara moved to live with her son Halvor on the home farm ofArnevik. Sara died eight years later at the age of seventy-eight.[5]

Note: The Fjelberg bygdebok lists the death date for Sara; however, the Bomlo bygdebok indicates that her death date is unknown. It is likely, therefore, that Sara died at Fjelberg parish.
