About Hans Heinrich Pfister Bruppacher

The three son, Hans Heinrich, Peter, Hans Jakob, were educated at Oetenbach. Afterwards, Hans Heinrich learned the glazier trade in Richterswil, and Peter and Hans Jakob were sent to foster parents in Wadenswil. In 1645 Hans Heinrich finished his apprenticeship, and one year later his brothers began to learn their trade. Peter became a scharer (barber/surgeon), and Hans Jacob became a shoemaker. Both learned their trade in Mannedorf, and when they had finished their apprenticeships, they began their time as traveling journeymen. On May 2, 1648, Hans Heinrich Bruppacher was married in Wadenswil to Elisabeth Rusterholz, daughter of Jacob Rusterholz. On this occasion, he received 40 guilders of the Bruppacher fortune, and his brothers also received a sum of money so that they could make a present to the couple. In 1661 Hans Heinrich Bruppacher lived in Ibersheim when he wrote, with his brother Hans Jakob, a letter to the Elector Karl Ludwig, requesting his intercession for receiving the inheritance of their mother, Anna Pfister, in Wadenswil. They were not successful because the authorities of Zurich distributed inheritances only to people who renounced the Anabaptist faith. One of the sons however traveled to Zurich in 1663 to claim the fortune, but received only 30 guilders for food for the journe In 1662 Hans Heinrich Bruppacher, the glazier, was recorded by the Hirzel pastor as living with his wife, Elisabeth Rusterholz and two children in Mackenheim. In 1668, 5,000 guilders of the Bruppacher fortune were definitively confiscated because the father, Peter Bruppacher, had died in "disobedience". (taken from Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage Volume XVI July 1993) and http://miles-shute-kouns-families.com/getperson.php?personID=I0591&...

Heinrich was an Anabaptist. In about 1642 he was sent to Richterswil to learn the trade of glazier. He finished his apprenticeship in 1645. Heinrich married Elizabeth Rusterholtz on May 2, 1648 at Wadenswil, Zurich. He received 40 guldens at the time of his marriage. His two brothers also received money at that time so they could make a present to the couple. He emigrated about 1651 to Alsace. The pastor of Hirzel noted in 1662 that Heinrich was living at Mackenheim in Alsace with his wife and two children. However, he was already living at Ibersheim by 1661. He signed a letter with his brother Hans Jacob as hereditary tenants of Ibersheim in 1661.
