About the Kitzinger surname

Loeb Uri and his wife were ejected from Kitzingen in 1754-5 (hence the surname). Samuel Kit9zinger was born in Sickershausen in 1756 where his mother died within a year. That was just outside the Bishop of Wuerzburg's domains, in the Margarve Friedrich's margravate of Ansbach.

Loeb Uri was buried in Ansbach where his son Samuel (1756-1842) entered a bank and married Rainle Oberndoerffer, his boss's daughter. Samuel and his son Gabriel (1809 -1881), who owned a business school, were prominent in the (slowly liberalising) Jewish congregation of Ansbach.

Gabriel's son Sam (1842-1903) co-founded the Bank Hirschmann&Kitzinger, which his son Gabriel (1881-1963) sold to the Commerzbank in 1918. Sam's four surviving children and their spouses left Germany in 1939 and died in Israel, Britain or the USA.
