Ecklandt, Hirssen???

  • A 1695 marriage record (attached) in the church book of Königsbach an der Weinstraße in Rheinland-Pfalz mentions the town of origin of the groom, and someone has written it as "Ecklandt, Hirssen". Can anyone tell me where that is?

  • Hello Chris,


    "Ecklandt, Hirssen" is obviously not the town of origin. Unfortunately I can't decipher Hirssen, but that is the town. Ecklandt, the current spelling is Eckland, is a ground surface. "auß das Eckland zu ???" means: from the angled ground of ???


    Kind regards
