Long-established family in the Rems valley with very good existing sources and documents

The Mayer family is an long-established and quite rich winmakers family in Großheppach. Friedrich Immanuel Mayer married 1893 her cousin Elisabethe Pauline Mayer, so their fathers were brothers. Mayer in Grossheppach

Their ancestors were mostly winemakers, some were crafts men. The marriage was normally within the village, sometimes from a village near by. Marriages from far away (>15 km) were very rare. The age of marriage was around 25 years. They had a lot children, but the chld mortality was also quite high. There were also frequently epidemics. All ahead the plague, which has killed a lot of people in a very short period of time. In the lower Rems vally I could recognise epedemics e.g. 1596 (dysentery "rote Ruhr"), 1607 (plague), 1611 (plague), 1626 (the big plague) or 1635/36 (plague).

A detailled list of ancestors you will find in a kekule-sorted list.

I had to devide the family chart into four brances, as the width is too wide to have a proper view.
