I'm working through the history of the Humborstad farm in the Davik bygdebok
and finding some words very obscure. In this request, I'm stumbling over
the phrase "frå bolken fyre" which seems to translate to "from the fire
period" except that that makes no sense. The larger context is below. Can
anyone help me? Thanks.
