Bjørnør is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county in Norway. The 865-square-kilometre (334 sq mi) municipality existed from 1838 until 1892.[1] It encompassed the area of what is now the municipalities of Roan and Osen, plus the Stoksund area in the present day municipality of Åfjord, all in the western part of the Fosen peninsula in Trøndelag county. Bjørnør bordered the municipality of Aafjord to the south and Nordre Trondhjem county to the north and west. The administrative centre of the municipality was the village of Roan where the Roan Church is located.[2][3]

History[edit]

The municipality of Bjørnør was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). On 15 January 1892, the King approved a royal resolution to split up the municipality of Bjørør. It went into effect on 1 June 1892 when Bjørnør ceased to exist, and it was split into three new municipalities: Osen (population: 1,575), Roan (population: 2,069), and Stoksund (population: 1,122).[4]
