Lehman Families in the parish of Eggiwil in the Emmental of Canton Bern, Switzerland, 1550-1725

A record of the Lehman baptisms abstracted below, unless otherwise noted, may be found in the Eggiwil Kirchebucher. Almost invariably, however, those families originate elsewhere. There is considerable shuttling between Eggiwil, Signau and Rothenbach. Martin Lehman from Eggiwil, whose date of birth we will estimate as abt. 1690, immigrated to the Palatinate 12 Aug 1717. Otherwise, few records of Lehman families who appear to be established at Eggiwil have been found. Those are:
