the bygdebok for Alenfit/Hordaland includes a table displaying total lease fees (expressed in butter-equivalents) for several categories of farm is from 1624. The categories of ownership are: king's properties; church's properties; monastery's properties; properties of the Rosenkrantz family; and farmer-owned properties.
What puzzles me is, I read elsewhere that the church and monastery properties were seized by the Danish king in the Reformation...100 years before 1624.
Can anyone explain this? Maybe these categories of ownership are traditional, not reflecting the reality of 1624.
My interest is in: who owned these farms before they began to be sold off to the resident farmers in the 1500s - 1600s?
