Reading 1.3: Settling in Greenland (from Saga of the Greenlanders)

Herjólfr var Bárðarson Herjólfssonar;
hann var frændi Ingólfs landnámsmanns.
Ingólfr gaf Herjólfi land á milli Vágs ok Reykjaness.
Herjólfr bjó fyrst á Drepstokki.
Þorgerðr hét kona hans, en Bjarni sonr þeira,
ok var efniligr maðr.
