Look under Tjernagel North for the Tjernagel farms. In the old days there was no differentiation made between the Tjernagel farms, they were called Tjernagel in various forms.

The name Tjernagel South has later been written in various ways, such as: In 1647: Sore Tiørnagell and Ytt Tiernagell, 1668: Wester Tiernagel, 1701: Sore Tiernaglen, 1704: Lille Tiernagel 1716: Søndre Tiernagelen, 1802: Sore Tiernagelen, 1838: Tjernagelen, søndte, 1865: Tjemagl,søndre and in 1890: Tjernagl, søndre. Now the name is written Tjernagel Søre [Tjernagel South, hereafter].

Property tax on Tjernagel South was a half "laup"(archaic measurement, aproximately 33 lbs.) butter, and one goatskin. This tax was kept unchanged.

The income tax was set at 2 pounds 1 "spann"(archaic unit of measurement, aproximately 20 lbs.) butter which was unchanged until 1838 when it was recalculated to 2 skylddalar (unit of money) 4 on (a coin equal to one fifth speciedalar) and 22 shillings. In 1890 the income tax was set at 4.07 skyldmarks (unit of money).

In 1668 it was said about the farm:" Good fields and meadows, with fish, near the water, good for planting hops".

In 1723 the farm had neither forest nor mill and the land was similar to Tjernagel North. The farm did not have any other income besides the crops.

In 'l 802 the farm had a poor pasture, no forest, but had a little peat for fuel. The worth of the farm was set higher than on the neighboring farms. The reason for this is not known.

In 1866 the farm had 16 5/6mål (1 mål=.247 acres) fields and cultivated pasture.

Of that, 2 mål was good, 11 mål was medium good, and 3 5/6 mål was poor. 110 mål
natural pasture, of which 11 mål was good, 67 mål was medium good, and 33 mål was poor. At that time only 2 mål was able to be cultivated. The pasture was in a convenient location, but was poor quality and only big enough for half the cattle. Roots and peat  could be found for burning, but there was not enough. Seaweed was used to help. Farm number 1 was somewhat easy to farm, farm number 2 was easy to farm, and farm number 3 was hard to farm. The farm as a whole was generally well cultivated. No special rights and privileges attached to this land are mentioned.

Amicable border plotting was held in 1835. Division of outlying fields, peat bog and some cultivated plots in 1881. Division of cultivated and outlying plots in 1918. Redivision of outer plots in 1968.

1668: 1. horse, 12 cattle, 12 sheep
1723: 8 cattle, 9 sheep
1802; 2 horses, 11 cattle, 10 sheep
1866: 3 horses, 18 cattle, 58 sheep

1668: Sowed: 2 "stads" barrels. Harvested: 8 barrels.

1723: Sowed: 3 barrels oats. Harvested: 14 barrels.

1802: Sowed: 2 1/2 barrels oats, 1/4 barrel potatoes. Harvested: 23 barrels oats, 2 barrels potatoes.

1866: Sowed: 7 7 1/2 barrels oats, 5 barrels potatoes. Harvested: 46 barrels oats, 26 barrels potatoes, 99 skippund (unit of measurement, approximately 350 lbs.) hay, 34 1/2 skippund straw.

Tjernagel South was Lyse monastery property until 1874, when farm number 4 was
redeemed, farm number 3 in 1877, farm number 2 in 1888 and farm number 1 in 1890. Later the farmers have mostly been self owners.
