Vincent Fischer has French origins.

Verrier à Eigenthal à partir de 1680

Note individuelle : #Commentaires#Vincent FISCHER n'était pas originaire du comté de Dabo, puisque le 03/04/1666, le comte de Dabo s'adresse à son bailli pour lui recommander que le verrier Vincent FISCHER, dont il a reçu les plaintes, soit employé avant l'embauche de verriers étrangers ainsi que cela était entendu lorsqu'il est venu s'établir dans le comté; source : Antoine Stenger

The First Glassworks at Wulfingerthal

On April 3, 1666 the Count advised his bailiff that the glassworker Vincent Fischer had been accused of engaging foreign workers. It is definitely the period in which the glassmakers of the region of Bitche were moving into this region. The glassworks that the Count mentions in his writings have not been located, but it must have been in the region of Wangenbourg. The parish records of Marmoutier indicate three births between 1665 and 1670 to Vincent Fischer and Anne Greiner at "Wangenbourg und Glasshutt."
