About [dd] Christiaan Lessing



Matthias Lessing was the first to go to Schkeuditz. His son, Christian Lessing, who later had 4 sons, was a town judge until 1624. The 1st son, also called Christian Lessing, was born in 1607, became mayor of Schkeuditz and landlord of the Blue Angel until 1685. All citizens had during this time of the 30-year-old war under its consequences and underbranding troops, as the troops of Tillys , Wallenstein, Holcks and the Swedes. Schkeuditz burned 12 times in these yearsFrom Unfortunately there are no concrete records in how far the Blue Angel was affected. The second son, Christian Friedrich Lessing, was, like his father, until 1682 also a debtor in Schkeuditz. The 3rd son, Carl Lessing, took over the Blue Angel from 1641 to 1687 and was also a judge. The fourth son, born only in 1647, Theophilus Lessing, moved to Kamenz, where the war had largely destroyed the prosperity of the family. His son, Johann Gottlieb Lessing, was pastor and author of many theological writings and is the father of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, (1729-1781) The second son of Carl Lessing, who was also known as Carl Lessing and who was the town's governor, led the inn until 1722. His ten son, Carl Friedrich, then led the inn. Once again the following years were characterized by wars (Silesian War 1744/45 and the Seven Years War 1756/63). At the same time, the changing occupations caused great burdens for the city and the inn.
