Tor eide gårder og gårdparter i mange bygder. Han var den rikeste bonden i Kviteseid og en av de rikeste bøndene i hele Telemark i gammel tid.

Han eide Tveit i Tørdal i 1624 og hadde odel til gården så gården må ha vært i familien hans. Fjågesund betalte kvegskatt av tre hester, 14 kuer, 14 sauer og sju geiter i 1657. Det var regnet som 1 1/2 full gård.

He owned Tveit in Tørdal in 1624 and was heir to the farm so the farm must have been in his family. Fjågesund paid cattle tax on 3 horses, 14 cows, 14 sheep and 7 goats in 1657. It was considered as 1 1/2 full farms.
