Even Olsen HUSEBY (b. 1640)

Even was born in 1640 and bought the farm in about 1690. Further research is required to determine the various sub-farms of the HUSEBY farm, but for now all we know for certain is that the farm he bought was then named after him and called Evenstua. (Hveberg, 304.)

Even married Kari Olsdtr and they had a son named Ole who took over the farm after his father.
