      p. 425:
      “Anna Olsdtr and Hans Jenssen (first mentioned in 1778) first leased more than half of the land of Ole Pedersen and Ingeborg Pedersdtr (see above), who were probably the parents of Anna. We have no sources that can confirm this, but in addition to the fact that Anna and her husband took over the major part of Ole and Ingeborg’s lease, they called one of their daughters Ingeborg.

      “Hans was born in Kvæfjord, but his mother came originally from Fiskenes. She was widowed early, and moved in with her son when he was a farmer at Skarstein.

      “The first leased parcel of Anna and Hans is roughly equivalent to what later became known as the farm Nerjorda. In 1782 they leased the land held by Lars Jakobsen when he died. This leased parcel then was called Elvebakken. Together, the couple had over half of Skarstein from this year.

      “It was rather unusual that the land on a farm was so unevenly distributed among the tenant farmers who lived at Skarstein. Anne and Hans must have been a very central couple, not only within Skarstein but also in the wider context. He was the captain of the fishing boat, without a doubt, and the economy remained generally well above average. Information from 1802 says that Skarstein had a mill. It must have belonged to Anna and Hans.

      “In 1798, the tax dropped sharply, but after two years, it came up at the old level again. Hans probably had lost his boat at a financial loss, which was common when revenues fell in a short period. At the same, during one of the worst periods of the crisis, we know that famine and epidemics also appeared.

      “These hard times created many tragedies, but Anna and Hans fared exceptionally well during these difficulties. During this time, they leased Bakken to a son and Nordjorda to a daughter, thus putting their family over all of the land of Skarstein for a few years.

      “Anna and Hans did not provide any of the leased land to the youngest son until he had married. Then they handed over all the land to him. Hans died in 1826 and Anna nine years after that.”«s92» [1]
