Identified Man

Tree Chaijm Veith ben Isac, Weyl is mentioned 25 times between 1679 and 1684. His designation in the Stühlingen family tree is 'U1.2'. His father was Isac, Weyl Schwerzen.

Veith Weyl was under protection in Donaueschingen, living mainly in Hofwiese. His descendancy has to be inferred. In 1681 he was punished together with his brother Salomon for beating a forrester bloody [R4744; 01.15.1680]. He further has a brother Marum in Oftringen [R1326; 10.07.1683] . The latter, in turn, has a brother Judel [R1113; 06.02.1693]. In 1681 both Veit [R4803; 03.06.1681] and Judele [R4817; 07.04.1681] lived in Hofwiese. Judel is also listed directly as Veit`s brother [R1356; 11.10.1684. Judel is identified as the son of Isac [R3575; 12.31.1680]. All four earned their living with cattle and horse dealing. Veit was frequently involved in fights and was fined repeatedly. In 1684 the priest of Oftringen lodged a complaint against Veit with the court of the Rheinau monastery for toll fraud [R1342; 02.09.1684] . The same year he was also suspected of horse theft. He with his wife and infant were ordered to leave for Lengnau [R1356; 11.10.1684] . .
