From several inherited residences well into the 1600's we hear about Såvi and Ragnhild of Nape. They owned among other things 3 tnK at Sitje including Lie. Såvi died early, but we find Ragnhild several times. She wrote in support of Sitje in a 1588(?) document and then testified about the allodial farm Lie. Her son-in-law Folke had leased it for 9 years. It should therefore be certain that it was Folke Tjodgeirson from Straume who was the first owner we find in the skattelistene [tax rolls]. Some time after he moved home to Hylestad, we find the other son-in-law [Tarjei Folkeson] of Ragnhild.
Tarjei Folkeson from S.Rygnestad was married to Gjertrud Såvisdtr. Ragnhild of Nape had 1 tnK at Sitje in 1603, but probably already lived at Sitje then. A document from 1605 tells that Ragnhild Tarjeisdtr had lived with her son-in-law Tarjei Folkeson several years. The children of her son were minors. Tarjei would get all she had in payments due and land rents of the 4 tnK she had for her lifetime in return for bestowing her pension.
Tarjei probably died around 1610. After that we find a line of names at the farm, probably his children and grandchildren. From that we hear in the dispute about Nape and other places, there may have been many children. Owners in 1615 were Olav Svalestog with 5 mK and Torkjell Lindem of Nesherad with 2½ tnK.
Gjertrud was still alive in 1624. She had then 2 tnK at Sitje as property, 1 mK at Bergland as allodial property and 1 mK at Austad in Nednes [Aust-Agder] as marital property. Olav Svalestog had 5 mK marital property. Gjertrud probably died around 1630 and must have then been an old woman.
