The families at Botner in Løken, Høland, and O in Vang.

The connection between the younger and older families at Botner in Løken, Høland and O in Vang is not clarified.

Graphical overview.

Even though I am convinced that there has to be a connection between the families,
I have decided to end the overview of my ancestors in «Østfold/Akershus» with

Halle Torchildsen at Botner.

In a Users Forum discussion in the Digital Archive of The National Archives of Norway dated 2005 March 31,
Tore H. Vigerust found the connection likely):
We cannot take any information from the 18th century that the people of Botner are descended in the direct male line from Jutuls and other pre-Christian giants (by authors such as Reiar Gjellebøl; Wilse etc.), nor from nobles on the farm in the 15th century (something which not mentioned in 18th-century sources).But it is reasonable that the Botner people around 1600 descend (on the male and/or female side) from one of the two brothers of the O family, Eivind Gjordsson, mentioned 1438-1471, and Jon Gjordsson (at Botner?), known 1438-1448. The relationship can go via Nils Jensson. Or via Mogens O. Or without both Nils Jensson and Mogens O. (I think it is still possible that this Mogens O 1528 could be identical to the Halland nobleman Mogens 0.)
