Between 1516-1622 Samuel Fürth was expelled from Fürth, Bavaria, Germany. He then settled in Sušice (Schuttenhofen), Plzeň, Czech Republic. (Fürth is a town near to Nuremberg, Germany.) The expulsion of Jews was regulated by the Matriculation Laws, which required that, when the Jewish population of a town exceeded a specified level, those surplus to requirement had to leave.

www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/bohemia/boh587.html: The History of the Jews in the Royal Town of Sušice (Sušice, Czech Republic) The local Jews were mostly merchants. They bought their supplies in Bavaria. This is illustrated by a complaint from Karel Wolf, an alderman from Passau, who sued Samuel Fürth on 16 June 1638 for a debt of 188 guilders and 13 crowns for goods supplied. The guarantors were Samuel Šťastný and Löbl. However, Fürth had paid for the goods, and already had a receipt for payment on 23 September 1638.
