About Jacob Gumpel Gumplowicz

Jacob Gumplowicz, was described in the classic history of Krakow Jewry by Meyer Balaban as a rich man, a supplier of the Krakow mint, co-owner of a firm that went bankrupt in 1790.

He did not use Gumplowicz as his family name at that point. He was recorded in the Austrian census of 1796 as Jacob Guempel, age 36, i.e. born around 1758, family # 551, living in building 106, married to Sara of the family of the Abeles, age 30, i.e. born around 1766.

In other official documents, such as the birth records of his children he was referred to as Jacob Gimple or Gompl, living in building 205

Only after 1805, did the name Gumplowicz appear as a surname. In 1793 Jacob received a coveted right to sell alcohol in bottles. He was obviously a prominent citizen in spite of his bankruptcy.
