Óleifur hinn hvíti herjaði í vesturvíking og vann Dyflinni á Írlandi og Dyflinnarskíði og gerðist þar konungur yfir; hann fékk Auðar hinnar djúpauðgu dóttur Ketils flatnefs; Þorsteinn rauður hét son þeirra. Óleifur féll á Írlandi í orustu, en Auður og Þorsteinn fóru þá í Suðureyjar. Þar fékk Þorsteinn Þuríðar dóttur Eyvindar austmanns, systur Helga hins magra; þau áttu mörg börn. Óláfur feilan hét son þeirra, en dætur Gróa og Álöf, Ósk og Þórhildur, Þorgerður og Vigdís. Þorsteinn gerðist herkonungur; hann réðst til félags með Sigurði (jarli) hinum ríka, syni Eysteins glumru.
