Dan(n)fald(t) in Herrnsheim, Germany

The name

  • Dann=??
  • fald=feld=field??
Note: The first record for the name Dannfald in Herrnsheim was the marriage of Johann "Theobald" Dannfald to Maria Barbara Gorb in 1694. This was followed by the baptism of their children in 1689, 1699 and 1702. The first record for Johann "Ewald" and Maria Barbara Dannfald in Herrnshiem was the baptism Maria Christina in 1707.

Question: Is it possible that the persons called Theobald and Ewald are one and the same? At her marriage to Henrich Bardong in 1721 Anna Margarethe was listed as the daughter of "Ewald" Donnfald and his wife, Maria Barbara. The baptism of an Anna Margarethe Dannfald at the appropriate time with the appropriate mother listed her as the daughter of Johann "Theobald" Dannfald.

Since all of the records for Theobald occur before 1702 and all of the records for Ewald occur after 1709 (while Maria Barbara remains the same) it is possible that Theobald and Ewald were relatives and Ewald married Theobald's widow.

Hopefully more research will clarify the situation.

The family appears to be from Osthofen. Ostehofen is several miles north of Hernsheim. Unfortunately, the Catholic records available through LDS so not start until 1721.

All records are from Herrnsheim unless otherwise noted.

Death of Maria Barbara Dannfald:

[Johann] Ewald Dannfald(t)★ (c 1671-1731) and Maria Barbara _______ ★ (c 1669-1762)

Name: Ewald was an old German name meaning "he who rules by law".

Birth: Possibly Osthofen. No later than 1683. 1671 based on his age of 60 years at his death in 1731.


scabino = juror from the marriage of his daughter Anna Margarethe in 1721

pratoris [meaning unknown] from the 1726 baptism of Anna Barbara Gorb when Ewald's daughter Anna Barbara was listed as the daughter of "Ewaldi Dannfold pratoris". His son Jacob was also listed as a pratoris. The only similar word I can find is "praetoris" loosely meaning chief magistrate.

D [Domini] Ewaldi Dannfald was a witness to a lot of marriages around 1726. It appears that he was an official witness because there is otherwise no apparent connection to the people who were marrying.

Domini [master] was an honorific given to Catholic priests and certain lay notables. Ewald Dannfald was a layman.

Move from Osthofen to Herrnsheim: Ewaldi Dannfald was in Herrnseim by 1707 when his daughter Marie Christina was born.


  • When Anna Margrethe Dannfald, the daughter of Ewald Dannfald and his wife Maria Barbara _ born in 1701, married Henrich Bardong the son of J. Adam Bardong and and Maria Catherine ____ they needed a dispensation of consanguinity.
  • When Jacob Dannfald son of Ewald Dannfald and his wife Maria Barbara -- born circa 1701 married Maria Barbara Bardong daughter of J Adam Bardong etc they also got a dispensation

Note: Impediments of consanguinity can extend as far as the forth degree of kinship. Generally it means that the intended spouses shared a common ancestor.

1718 Lease: Dalberg bekunden, dass sie den (Herrnsheimer Einwohnern) Adrian Scheffer, Hans Ewald Dannefeld, Hans Jakob Hagenauer, Johann Hagenauer, Johann Sei, Jakob Hagenauer, Philipp Holzemer und Wilhelm Rurig fr einen jhrlichen Zins von 161 Malter Frucht und 20 Gulden ihr in Herrnsheim belegenes freiadeliges Hofgut auf 12 Jahre in Bestand gegeben haben 1718-02-12 Stadtarchiv Worms, Abt. 159 K 32 UA 236 - Ausf., Papier, aufgedr. Signet des A 2; beiliegend 4 Vertragsentw?rfe(Sent by Peter Schulz, October 2007)

Loose translation: Franz Anton and Uolfgang Eberhard "Kmmerer" v. Baron von Dalberg state that Herrnsheim inhabitants, Adrian Scheffer, Hans Ewald Dannefeld, Hans Jakob Hagenauer, Johann Hagenauer, Johann Sei, Jakob Hagenauer, Philipp Holzemer und Wilhelm Rurig agree to rent a large farm situated in Herrnsheim for a period of 12 years at a rate of 161 "Malter" fruit and 20 "gulden" [a type of money] 1718-02-12

Peter Schulz says:

"the consequences are that these families will have lived and worked closer together for a period of time and this can be some kind of economical or social background for some marriages among them."

    Occupation of Conrad Bexmann: Hurtulane [gardener]

    I believe that this was a relatively important job. The Von Dalbergs were a wealthy and important family, the schloss at Herrnsheim was grand, and the gardens must have been well tended. ("Around 1790 under the lord of the castle, Wolfgang Heribert von Dahlberg, the park was redesigned by the renowned landscape gardener Friedrich Ludwig Sckell. He designed it in the form of an English garden with lawns, woods, ponds and an island." Worms Tourism). In addition, Johann Bexmann was given the honorific "Domini" [Dni] which was used for Catholic priests and certain lay notables.
