Biography

Metta was born in about 1729 on Fatland farm on Halsnøy island in Fjelberg clerical district in Hordaland, Norway. She was the daughter of Ole Hansen Fatland and Brita Monsdatter Aksdal. She grew up at Fatland. In 1756 at the age of about 27, she married Bjørn Person (Aksdal) Ve in Fjelberg kyrkje. She joined her husband at his farm at Aksdal on the Etnefjord in the Etne clerical district where they had four children together, two of whom died in infancy. Between 1762 and 1765, they resettled across the Etnefjord at Ve where her husband had been born. They added six more children there, and again two died in infancy. Her husband Bjørn passed away in 1792. Metta continued to live with her children who took over the farm at Ve, until her death there in 1805 at the age of 75.
