72. Knud Andersen KLEIBERG (298) (299)(211) was born about 1735 on Kleiberg farm (above Nedstrand), Tysvær, Rogaland, Norway. [Tysvær bygdebok, vol.2, gives birth year as 1735; Slooper book and Nedstrand bygdebok indicates that he was baptized in 1737.] He was baptized on 15 Dec 1737. He died in Dec 1797 in Tysvær, Rogaland, Norway. He was buried on 19 Dec 1797. He lived on the Aksland farm near Kleiberg before moving to Slogvik. Knut got the deed to Aksland from Ola Helgesen and Peder Knutsen at 1/2 measure of land from each, dated 20 Jun 1768. This would indicate that he would take possession the whole "bondelaupen" farm from 1769. (Possibly additional land in this farm was owned by the crown, the church or some other large landowner.) Knut sold the farm to an in-law in 1777. He and his family then moved to Tysvær. His first 2 children were born at Aksland, while those born after 1777 were born at Slogvik. (Nedstrand bygdebok)
Moved to Slogvik in Tysvær abt. 1770 probably from Kleiberg, Nedstrand Parish, Rogaland County. (Slooper Book)
"He owned and used the whole farm (Slogvik) in 1796 and at the settlement of the estate in 1799, his son Anders got a deed to the place. The gross value of the estate in 1801 was 349 dollars and 3/5 dollars and 6 shillings and the net for distribution (was) 123 dollars and 16 shillings." (Tysvær bygdebok #2) He was married to Malene Stensdtr VASSENDEN.
