Norwegian: Landshøvding, Brukspatron

< Previous | Next >


Hi everyone, there is a section in Knut Hamson's Markens Grøde when an expedition comes to survey for a copper mine, and each gentleman in the expedition has a title and a profession with some connection to the mining industry. here's the section:

- det var en Bergkyndig iblant dem og en Ingeniør iblant dem, en kaldtes Landshøvding, en Brukspatron

so I'm not sure what the last two are supposed to mean. I thought perhaps Landshøvding could be connected to logistics and Brukspatron to ironworks?

Thank you
