Recent information indicates that Jasper was also Justa/Gustaf PÓlsson, son of Olle PÓlsson of Fer(e)n Hook, New Castle Hundred.

He was born in Sweden altho his brother, Bengt was not. Identity of his parents or arrival date is unconfirmed. Olle/Olaf/Wooley/William is first mentioned 13 Feb 1667/8 in a patent issued to him and Thomas Jacobsson for Bread and Cheese Island, (this located on Christina River, north of Crane Hook, {Wilmington, DE}). The 1671 census identifies him as "Clocker Olla"..."klockare" or parish clerk for the Crane Hook Church, (Old Swede's/Holy Trinity). By 1684 he had moved to a 200A. tract at Fer(e)n Hook, where he resided in 1693. In 1696/7 his widow, Christina, was shown as property owner. Also living in the household was eldest son PÓl and his wife Elisabeth Lemmens, sons Olaf and Peter PÓlsson and daughters Christina and Maria. eldest daughter Brita had just married Eric Andersson. Source: the 1693 Census of the Swedes on the Delaware, pg 126, by Peter Craig.
