NOTE: Lorentz Mayer (K6KJ-LGR) on is assumed to have been married before in Ulm and born around 1612. While it may be possible, there isn't any supporting evidence to prove that Lorentz Mayer from Ulm and Lorentz Mayer from Schwenningen are the same person.

Research Notes

HHH, p 116 November 20 1652
Göttlicher Creditors Vergleich, So zwischen Lorentz Mayern, und seines Vaters seeligen Schuld Gläubigern getroffen worden, Anno 1652,
-Divine Creditors comparison, Sun Mayern between Lorentz and his father blessed debt creditors have been met, in the year 1652 .
-This would seem to indicate that his father was still alive in 1652. Except for the “seeligen” part which usually refers to a deceased person.
HHH, p 131 March 22 1653
Referring to the inventory of Anna, daughter of deceased Heinrich Barrho, and her out-of-wedlock son Michael, birth child of Balthasar Mueller. After Anna was executed for murdering a second illegitimate child (”Satan made me do it”), Michael came under the guardianship of Lorentz Majer and Georg Weiler. (Lorentz’s wife’s mother was a Barrho who might have been a relative of Michael’s mother.)
