as per translation from the Fatland farm entry in Kvinnherad V farm book online here: http://kittymunson.com/index.php?page=fatland-farm-kvinnherad-v
Ola Hansson, 1696-1772, married Brita Monsdotter (nedre Aksdal), 1701-1783, bought one part of the farm Fatland and was registered self owner 1733. Ola was the son of Hans Olsson Brekke in Granby and mother Anna Katharina Rieber. Ola grew up on Unneland Ulvik, where his parents lived. He came to Fatland by a switch of farms in 1724 between himself and his brother Anders, who at the switch got the family farm in Ulvik.
Ola Hansson was eventually a very well off man. Mora (his mother) was the daughter of the daughter of Laurits Johannesson Galtung on Torsnes. John (Johannes) was for some time a time bailiff of Halsnøy monastery goods and Hardanger County. Laurits was a large land owner, and some of the heritage of Ola Hansson had probably originates in the legacy of his great grandfather on Torsnes, and grandfather, Reverend Anders Andersen Rieber in Eidfjord.
Here in the district Ola owned farms Fatland, nedre Aksdal, Østhus, Kambe and southern Sydnesplassen. These farms he gave in turn and order by donation letter to his sons and daughters and their husbands.
