Lehman Families in the Parish of Rueggisberg 
in the Emmental Area of Canton Bern, Switzerland, 1550-1725


Rueggisberg is about 19 kilometers south of downtown Bern. It is a small parish. Nearby hamlets include Ruschegg-Graben, Vorderfultigen, Ratzenberg and Riggisberg. Baptism records begin in 1581 but the first Lehman baptism is not recorded until 1585. Apparently there were no Lehmans at Rueggisberg until Christian arrived and in 1585 married Kunigunde Boss, the daughter of a farmer who lived in the hamlet of Vorderfultigen. Christian settled there. Peter Lehman arrived on the scene and in 1635 married Anna Hassener. He also ultimately settled at Vorderfultigen, leading us to speculate that he and Christian were related and perhaps came from the same locality.


Vorderfultigen Family 1

..1. Christian Lehman, b. abt. 1562, d. aft. 26 Jun 1608. In Kirchebuch 1, p. 21 it is noted that Christen Leeman had settled at Vorderfultigen but he was not a citizen of Rueggisberg. On 26 Jun 1608 he was now a widower and asked for the citizenship. Because of his honest and conscientious life he was accepted as a citizen of Rueggisberg.
