  • Marriage: Unknown

   Another name for Jon was Jan Gautesson På Ornes.

  General Notes:

Jon Gautsson was a lendermann (feudal lord, nobleman or royal vassal)
of King Magnus IV in 1181 and participated in the struggle against
King Sverre. Jon and his brother, Munan, are named as ship captains
at the Battle of Nordnes (near Bergen). In 1184, King Magnus was
killed in battle and later Jon and some of the other chief men of the
kingdom who had opposed Sverre appear to have reconciled with him as
they managed to retain their properties and offices.

Jon married.
