¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The first of the two lesser families, Meyer or Mayer, first appear in records of 1660. A David Jew of Lauchringen was mentioned in 1662, and by 1663 he was read as David Mey[er] in Oberlauchringen. He was mentioned a few times in Tiengen documents. Two Stühlingen records, one of 1660 and one of 1666 , call him “Menckhe’s brother.” This reference cannot mean brother-in-law, since David was married to a daughter of David Dreyfuoss in Tiengen; however, it could mean step-brother or simply a close relative. The family name Meyer could have derived from the patronymic “Meyer,” indicating that David too is a son of Meyerle Bloch (). Naming and trading patterns show similarities between the Meyer and Bloch family, thus adding support to the hypothesis of a link between these families.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In 1673 David moved to Eberfingen and was there under protection until 1706 when he probably died. With him moved his brother Hirtzlin or Hürtzlin (), who was under protection until 1710. David had two sons: Jäckhlin (), who was married to the daughter of Leheman Bikert (B126.96.36.199) , and Elias (). Jäckhlin was under protection from 1673 to 1700, first in Ofteringen, then in Obermettingen, Horheim, and finally in Eberfingen. Jäckhlin had four sons: Salomon (), Elias (), David (), and Isac (). Salomon and David each had a son named Menckhin (, ). Isac moved to Baisingen around 1700 . Jäckhlin’s brother Elias was under protection in Stühlingen from 1692 to 1743 and had two sons, Israel () and Marx (). Israel left Stühlingen in 1717 to an unknown destination, while Marx stayed to the end and probably moved to Lengnau with Marum Dicker, although he does not appear in the Lengnau burial list. Hürtzlin was under protection from 1673 to 1710. His son Jäckhele () was under protection in Eberfingen from 1700 to 1717.
