The Tales of the Jedi Companion says that 2 years prior (4001 BBY), Andur went to H'ratth, and six years prior to that (4007 BBY), he saw the Force ghost of his grandfather Jev, who the Companion says disappeared on a mission a year prior to that (4008 BBY). If you start at 3999 and count back the number of years (2, then 6, then 1) you arrive at 4008 BBY, which has to be the year of Jev's death, given that he appeared to Andur in ghost form a year later (4007 BBY).

  133. StarWarsDotComBlogsLogoStacked "Major Character Birth Years" — Keeper of the Holocron's BlogLeland Chee's StarWars.com Blog (backup link) establishes that Padmé Amidala was born 46 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 46 BBY per The New Essential Chronology. Darth Plagueis (25: The Discreet Charm of the Meritocracy) states that Padmé Amidala "has only just turned thirteen" and that Gravid's reign "elapsed some five centuries earlier" which would place the quote regarding Gravid's death in 33 BBY. Thus, this article assumes that Gravid died around 533 BBY.

Therefore, simple math places this event in 296 BBY.
