GEYMANN (compiled by George Gustav)
Rudolf I of Habsburg made a Grant of Arms (burgher arms) i.e. arms common to family or tribe which are not modified for personal use but remain, constant through succeeding generations. Granted in late 13th century, details in Paul Furstschen's Book of Heraldry page XVIl, in Munich Archives. Blazon -- per pale, argent and or, a pale sable charged with a rowel of four points, argent, in fesse. In the early years of the sixteenth century the scandals of the sale of indulgences, the concubinage in the church and the inquisition, and the spread of the printing press, gave Martin Luther and the Reformation enormous impetus. While the Diet of Augsburg in 1555 was hesitating in granting religious peace, a rival assembly of more princes than were at the Diet met at Naumberg and decided to adhere to the ‘Confession of Augsburg' . This principle was—’Cuius regio, eius religio;’ each prince might choose for himself between Catholicism and Protestantism; his subjects must submit to that choice unless they preferred to emigrate. The protestant Geymann tribe then emigrated from Bohemia and settled in Kitzingen and Mainbernheim. The farmers and wine— growers remaining in that area, distant cousins, now spell their name-GEUMANN. The direct ancesters settled in Wurzburg. Georg Geymann was born there in 1836 and became a minor post office official. He married Anna Marganita ? in 1873.
