  • Notes 
    • From Chip Kalb is the explanation for the Occupation of Georg which was given as fraenk. marckgrefl. Pfar- und Pfrindtverwalther in Hof

      “Fraenk. marckgrefl. Pfar- und Pfrindtverwalther in Hof” is the windy way to say that Georg Steiner was the assistant pastor from the North Court of the Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth.

      “Pfrindt” is an old German word for “sinecure”, meaning that, because Steiner was just an assistant pastor, he was on half-pay while the senior pastor was on full pay.  “Fraenk. marckgrefl.” is an old abbreviation for fränkische markgräfliche, meaning that Rev. Steiner’s boss was the Margrave of Franconia.  Since 1398, it had been the traditional title of the Princes of Bayreuth, who controlled Franconia, and held by the Margraves of Brandenburg, who were already margraves by 1398.  The Principality had two administrative towns for the Oberland and the Unterland.  One of them was Hof, which was responsible for the Oberland, the northern highlands, including Bayreuth and the Saale River.  As you’ll see from the following map, the Oberland of the Principality was one of the neighbors of Saxe-Coburg.
