Olav was living in 1630 in Fosen gård #50, Avaldsnes, Rogaland,
Norway. He died in 1677 in Håland gård #68, Erfjord, Rogaland, Norway.
Olav Larsson took over his father's farm of Håland in 1635 and was the
lensmann in Jelsa between 1640 and 1650 and also in the 1660's. He
also served as the lensmann in Hetland skipreide from 1633 to 1635.
During Olav's term as lensmann in the 1660's, there were a number of
witchcraft trials in Jelsa. In 1663, Sigrid Vikeleite was tried for
witchcraft (verdict unknown) and Turid Hausland was acquitted of the
same charge. At the district ting on 30 Oct 1666, Olav was commended
for his excellent service as lensmann during troublesome times. Olav
Larsson's estate was valued at 26 laupar butter, quite a considerable
amount of property. Olav and Marit had only one child.
Olav married Marit Lauritsdatter Hogganvik, daughter of Laurits Knutsson Hogganvik and N.N. Torsnes, in 1630 in Avaldsnes, Rogaland, Norway. (Marit Lauritsdatter Hogganvik was born about 1590 in Hogganvik, Vikedal, Rogaland, Norway and died after 1663 in Håland, Erfjord, Rogaland, Norway.)
