The farm Haug belongs to the oldest farms in the area. Haug, and other farms with names of landscape formations, So Haug in Kvam was a great farm long time before birth of Christ, and it is supposed that Haug Farm also at first included other farms which now are independent estates, and have been so in more than thousand years, as Gudin, Veines, Gjerstad a.o. In 1559 the Haug Farm (Haug means: hill) was divided into two farms, and later in the history it was divided in various number, but in the early part of the 19th century Haug was divided in 8 farms: Land register No. 345 Hallan, 346 Grindberg the Lower, 347 Ho, Grønnes and Haugtrø, 348 Sør-Aunan, Nord Aunan and Grindberg the Upper. All of this farm sometimes is called only Haug.
We know nothing of the farms before 1650, so how it was here 1000 or 2000 years ago we dont know, other than what historians tell us about farming in the Bronze and Iron Ages. We know that the church owned much of the land in the Middle Ages, and that from 1600 on, (after the reformation) the church sold land to farmers. We also know that big farms from the Middle Ages later got divided in smaller farms, and as the population increased, that there often were the youngest sons in a family, who got some small areas on the fringe of the farm, and became a cotter (or crofter, "husman" in Norwegian), where they hardly could exist. And that it were their duty to work on the main farm for a numbers of weeks a year. That was what we call the "husman"-ship, as it developed in Norway, and divided the farmers in lower and upper class.
First thing we know about Haugtrø is from 1743, and it might have been a cotter's farm in the beginning. The name "Ho" is an old form of "Haug" and means hill.
