Hmmm. It is difficult to know from this, but here are some questions
First, are you doing the mount command as root or a regular user?
you generally need to be root unless you set up some extra things.
Second, is /dev/ad1s1e already mounted somethere ?
run df -k and see if it shows up.
Third, what are the ownership and permissions on /data1 ?
Fourth, was newfs run on the /dev/ad1s1e partition?
Note, that /dev/ad1s1e is a partition not a slice.
the associated slice is ad1s1 (eg without specifying the 'e' partition)
In FreeBSD, a slice is the primary division of the disk identified by
the numbers 1..4 and partitions are subdivisions of slices identified
by letters a..h where 'c' is reserved for system use, 'a' is for root
on the boot slice but can be anything on other slices and 'b' is
commonly used for swap on any drive/slice.

That is another possible issue if the OP messed around with it.
