[#61312] Ole Pedersen Berg (Eiker, Buskerud)

Recommended Posts

I found a reference below, to Ole Pedersen (Kortvedt) Berg (abt.1678-1841) and not sure if I have it translated properly - but it sounds like he was a fairly wealthy farmer and 'owned' the four farms listed below. If this is true, was this not unusual to own and not lease a farm at that time.'Ole Pedersen Berg var antagelig den rikeste bonden på Eiker i sin tid. Han var eier av følgende gårder: Kortvedt, Berg, Foterud, Vollstad, Kirkeås, Horgen og Søndre Mosnes. I perioden 1711 til 1720 var han en av de største kjørselforpaktere ved Kongsberg Sølvverk, og i dette tiåret hadde han inntekter av dette som beløp seg til ca. 2500 riksdaler. Skiftet som ble avholdt på Berg i april 1741 forteller om uvanlig stor rikdom. På gården sto det 25 hus, foruten flere utløer.'Any biographical information on Ole would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks Dale Nelson

O.P.B. was no doubt the richest farmer on Eiker in his time. He was the proprietor of the following farms: Kortvedt, Berg, Foterud, Vollstad, Kirkeås, Horgen and Søndre (Southern) Mosnes. From 1711 to 1720, he was one of the most important 'carrier lessees' ( I have no idea what a 'kjørsels forpakter' is. I guess he lent his wagons to the mine company, but someone else might be able to tell you that)at Kongsberg silver mines, in in this decade he had an income thereof which amounted to about 2500 rd (riksdaler was a former currency in Norway). The probate on Berg in April 1741 shows an exceptional huge wealth. 25 houses were situated on the farm added to that several barns (an 'utløe' is a barn out in the country on the person's propriety).I doubt that he lived from 1678 to 1841, though-:)Maybe this is his daughter?

Thank you Kjellaug for the translation - I was unable to translate kjørselforpaktere myself. The ability to speak Norwegian was lost in my family with the lost of my father and his siblings who still spoke the language at home (after three generation in America) until they went to school. I also thank you for the link to my recently created family webpage - I'm still trying to work the cyber bugs out of it and hope it has some useful info for others. Dale
