Brynhild was the daughter of Berge Haldorson Fister and Eli Sveinsdotter, and was born at Øvre Fister in 1789.[1]

She was recorded as Brønnelde, 10 years old, in the 1801 census.[2]

She was mentally ill.[1]

She moved to Stavanger in 1828.[1]

Research Notes

The Hjelmeland farm book lists that her father had a daughter with his first wife Siri, who was also named Brynhild but born in 1784 and died in 1800.

This profile originally had a birthdate of 8 Nov 1789 and deathdate of 10 May 1800, which must be due to a conflation of the two Brynhilds.
