Saga mentions, that Steinar Ínundarson requested the help of Chieftain
Einar against Torsteinn Egilsson at Borg. Snorri Sturluson lived
at Stafholt for three years, where he married his daughter Tordis to
Torvaldur Vatnsfirdingur. Oraekja, Snorri's son, lived there
until his nephew, Sturla Sighvatsson, drove him into exile. He
returned three years later, after Sturla had been killed, but was
rather unpopular in the area. In 1242, one year after his
father, Snorri, was killed in Reykholt, Kolbeinn the young and Gissur
Torvaldsson drove him again into exile. He did not return this
Finnur Jonsson's Church story mentions a monastery at Stafholt.
The church at Stafholt posessed great wealth.
