¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Lemble or Lämble Weil’s identity is somewhat confusing and had been difficult to unravel. In fact, there were two of them: Asher (Lemble) ben Jacob Weyl () and Ascher (Lemle) ben Meir Weyl (). A critical record shows that the former died around 1671, and the latter, whose origins stemmed from Tiengen, took the former’s place by paying the death tax and marrying Scheinel Gugenheimb , a daughter of Seligmann () . In his later years, Ascher (Lemle) is listed in the tax records only as “Lemble alt” (Lemble the old). Starting as a relatively low-volume general merchant, Lemle, now referred to as “Lemble,” specialized in general goods such as cloth, ribbons, and hardware around 1690.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Lemble had two sons and a daughter. His first son, Meir (), was under protection from 1706 to 1717 when he moved away without a trace. Neither business transactions nor misdemeanours are recorded. The other son, Schmuly (), conducted general business more or less successfully. He accumulated debt and in 1731 was planning a move to Wangen on Lake Constance, because he could not pay his protection tax in Stühlingen . Schmuly’s sister was married to Faistel Gugenheimb (). Faistel had partially supported Lemble during the latter’s dotage and had been promised Lemble’s house. But Scheinel, Lemble’s widow, instead gave the house to her son Schmuly, which caused Faistel to take legal action .
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Salomon Weil () was under protection from 1691 to 1738. His daughter was married to Jonas Gugenheimb in Randegg , probably a son of Jopperle. Salomon traded occasionally in real estate but may have largely been a moneylender. In 1734 he and his son Jonas () tried to purchase “the barn in the Jew’s lane” for the relatively enormous sum of 250 fl. . Jonas, married to the daughter of Boroch of Oberendingen () , was under protection and ran a low-level business between 1712 and 1743 when he moved away, possibly to Endingen.
