Brita was born about 1743 at Steine in Suldal, and was the daughter of Sven Rasmusson from Hjelmeland and Ingrid Torstensdotter Stråpa.[1]

She married Ola Torkelsen Indre Vanvik, and lived at Indre Vanvik in Suldal.[2] Their children were:

  • Sissela, born 1767, married Anders Sebjørnsen Teigen from Sauda in 1815[2]
