184 Axel was a navy officer, (Captain) in 1628 on several war ships and in 1631 became Vice Admiral. When illness forced him to leave the sea he settled in Hovland. Axel was the biggest land owner in Western Norway. He inherited Hovland from his father and Seim from his mother besides many other farms. By 1648, he owned the following manors (estates): Hovland, Onarheim, Gjersvik and Malkenes at Tysnes: Hatteberg, Mel and Seim in Kvinnherad: Ask on Askoy and Axelvold in Lindas (now called Fonnes). A year later he also had the use of Haaland and Amland, mortgaged by Christopher Orning. Besides all that, he had property in Strandebarm, Skanevik, Fjelberg, Etne, Os and Hardanger.

About 1620 Axel Mowat was the father of an illegitimate son: a) Anders with Margrethe Eriksdtr (see Dahl IVe). About 1625 he married Karen Bildt, daughter of Knut Bildt, (Morland on Orust and Lungefarm by Bergen) and wife Sidsel Brun. At Rosenholm Castle in Denmark, there are large portraits of Axel Mowat and his wife Karen with their coat of arms in one corner of the painting. They were proud looking people, a little heavy-set. Axel died 27 January 1661 and his wife in 1662 in Bergen. Their bodies were brought to Hovland but later moved to the baronial burial chapel by the church in Rosendal.

200 Bothwell, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of (1536-78), Scottish nobleman, the third husband of Mary, queen of Scots. Although he was a Protestant, Bothwell supported his future mother-in-law, Mary of Guise, a Roman Catholic, during her regency. When Mary, queen of Scots, returned to Scotland from France in 1561, Bothwell became one of her favorites at court. In 1562 he was accused of plotting to abduct the queen and was imprisoned for a short time, but he escaped and fled to France. He returned in 1565, at Mary's request, to aid in suppressing a rebellion led by her half brother, James Stuart, earl of Moray. The next year, after the murder of her trusted secretary, David Rizzio, by her husband, Lord Darnley, and other nobles, the queen took refuge with Bothwell at Dunbar Castle.
In February 1567 Darnley was murdered, almost certainly by Bothwell, who was, however, acquitted of the crime at a mock trial. Shortly thereafter he abducted the queen, with her probable consent, and carried her to Dunbar Castle. He divorced hiis wife and married the queen on May 15, 1567. On May 12, 1567 he had been created Duke of Orkney. Both Roman Catholic and Protestant nobles, angered by the marriage and the circumstances surrounding it, rebelled. Mary and Bothwell, with a strong force, met the insurgents, but the royal army refused to fight. At that point Bothwell fled to Denmark, where he was imprisoned and later died insane. Mary divorced him in 1570.
