Georg Henckel was born in the midst of the 30 Years War. He was descended from Dr. Johann Henkel, chaplain to Queen marie of Hungary. The family belonged to the nobility, the Count Henkel Von Poeltzig. He matriculated at Giessen University July 25, 1650, in the fourth class, at the age of 15 years. He became a teacher and was made preceptor of the school at Mehrenberg (near Weilberg) in 1662 where he remained until his death in 1678. He was buried in the Lutheran Church Cemetery at Mehrenberg and his widow who returned with her family to Steinberg, her early home, died there and was buried on March 11, 1770 in the Lutheran Cemetery.
