Åsland is situated high on a ridge overlooking Dalen and Bandak Lake.
Records date back as far as 1359 that mention this farm. The Åsland line can be traced back to Kjetil Ormson who was possibly the father of Orm Kjetilson. Kjetil Ormson was mentioned as lagrettman [juror] from 1481 to 1497.
Orm Kjetilson bought land at Åsland from Olav Bø, who was somehow related to Orm Kjetilson's wife, Torbjørg Drengsdotter. Orm also acquired land at N.Midjås and Rykkeli, by trading land at Akre in Lårdal with Vetle Bjørguvson. Orm Kjetilson had purchased yet more land from Olav Bø and Asbjørn Gunvaldson, including the deserted Hedebø and Skremestøyl, as well as several fishing lakes. Records of these transactions were destroyed by fire, but in 1536, a letter was sent to Orm's son Dreng Ormson which attested that the transactions had taken place.
Dreng inherited the land at N.Midjås and Rykkeli from his father, and in 1544 traded it to Tarjei "Agir" for land at Jordet. By 1600 the land at N.Midjås and Rykkeli had transferred to Gunnuv. It appears there were numerous lawsuits over these lands.
A land transaction in 1577 identifies the name of Dreng's wife as Signe.
