Castle Hohenneuffen stands about 22 Km's southeast of Stuttgart, Baden, Germany, which
is thought to have built (Abt. 1100) by Manegold von Zähringen, Noble & Count of Rohrdorf,
Count of Sulmetingen, to Neuffen (b. Abt. 1080, fell in battle, 8-11-1122, who had m. Matilde,
Cuntess of Urach (d. Bef. 11-20-1138, a dau. of Egino III, Count of Urach & Kunigunde,

Duke of Swabia (1057), King of Germany (3-15-1077) & 1st Wife- Thietburg, Countess of ___?,
b. Abt. 1015 in Germany, d. Bef. 1059).. Count Manegold was a nephew of the Holy Ulrich of
Augsburg. The castle passed down by hereditary Rights, to the Counts of Neuffen, then, the
Counts of Neuffen, to Märstetten.

Prince Heinrich's earliest known home was in Swabia; later in the Village Munderkingen a .d.
Tonaw (Krs. Ehringen a.d. Donau ), Duchy of Baden, Germany.
"The Counts of Zimmern recorded in their Chronicle of about the middle 1500's, that the
Möhringen were already the source which borders the "shadow course", also here the
inestimable evidence for the Knight Möringer of the legend. The Chronicle carries a 6-page
poem under the Knight which the author suggests, dates between 1100 - 1200's A.D., and it
is recorded:

"The oldest land driver in these high German Lands (Baden, southern Württemberg
and southern Bavaria) is that of the Noble Möringer. This Möringer was a Swabian
and one powerful reigning Prince. He had his home in Munderkingen a.d. Tonaw and
had Penance. Equally well, man not wise of his history. He also had one different
name, the name "Möringer" being his family name, as in ancient usage. Man says
that he received the name from the Village Meringen a.d. Tonaw, where he was born;
which 'the Möhringen not commands without Meringen.' Also bears witness- the Town
Coat of Arms and Seal; it is from times 'immemorial years', traditional with the Mohr

This Möringer had equal commands or one history of many honours and temporal qualities.
He took one beautiful and pious wife, as is verified in folk songs. In such a manner, he was
very fortunate in all things, therefore, he decided upon a journey to foreign lands to honour
the Apostle Saint Thomas, one of the Twelve Apostles."
"Saint Thomas, also called Didymus (Tomas being the Aramaic; Didymus, the Greek word
signifying "twin"), one of the Twelve Apostles known as The Doubter. He is said to have
been a native of Antioch, the twin brother of a sister Lysias, children of Diophanes and Rhea.

Eusebius implies that he was a stepbrother of Jesus and that his real name was Judas. The
scene in the Gospel, in which the doubts were at last dissipated, that Thomas had expressed
with great vehemence as to the fact of the resurrection, is the chief of the three occasions on
which he is prominent (consul John 20: 24-29; Luke 24: 36-49). After the crucifixion of Jesus it
fell to the lot of Saint Thomas to proselytize India, and tradition relates with great circumstantiality
that he hesitated to travel there until Jesus appeared to him in a vision and ordered him to go
to Condophares, the Indo-Parthian King, who ruled over the Kabul Valley and the Punjab, and to
build him a palace. Saint Thomas accordingly went to India, and converted and baptized
King Gundphoras or Gondophares whose name is known to archeologists through many
inscriptions and coins as reigning from 21 to 52 A.D. at Peshawar on the Indus. Later traidtions
state that Thomas went farther south and east than the Punjab; founded the Church of the
Christians of Saint Thomas in Malabar, and was martyred with buddha the honor of the footprint
on Adam's Peak, reputed as left on his ascension into heaven. His remains were transferred to
Edessa where Chrysostom mentions his grave as one of the four genuine tombs of the apostles,
the other three being those of Peter, Paul, and John". (Ref. Am. Ency., 1956).
"The Knight Möringer decided to go to India to search out the Saint's home. In preparing for his
journey, he left his wife, children, Fief's and Fief Peoples in the Guardianship of his nearest cousin,
the young "Hach", Count of Neuffen. Upon his departure, he presented his wife, the Countess with
one golden ring and one wedding ring to show her his travels. With this, he set out for his travels
through many distant lands to wander.

The Count of Neuffen was the young "Hach", (says Karl Bursche) sheltered his companion's wife
and children and after seven years and no more hopes of the old Knight Möringer even returning,
he proposed marriage to the Countess. This was suggested so that she may have a man, also
to preserve the lands and the peoples and to make the children "serviceable". He promised not to
beat or scorn them; she accepted, then the Count appointed one wedding day .

The old Knight Prince von Möringer prayed to St. Thomas to "deliver him out of these lands".
Upon awaking, he discovered that he was outside of his Castle by the Mill. He went to his Castle
and ask the Gate Keeper if he recognized his Liegelord, however, no one knew the old Knight, who
had aged considerably. Then the old Knight Möringer proceeded to ask for admission. The Gate
Keeper was advised that the old Knight was a Pilgrim who had just returned from Saint Thomas
lands. The Gate Keeper then departed and ask the Countess if the Pilgrim could be admitted. Upon
hearing that the stranger was a Pilgrim just returning from St. Thomas Lands, she granted the
Pilgrim admission to the Castle.

The Count of Neuffen approached the Pilgrim (Knight von Möringer) and not recognizing him, ask the
old Knight, as was tradition upon such an occasion, that the Pilgrim make a Sonnet for the occasion.
The old Knight, being with heavy heart at the news of his old bride, thinking that he was dead, and
about to take a new husband, composed the following sonnet:

"In Angst und Not eine schöne Frau
(In Fear and need one beautiful woman)

Hat mich gebracht der Walt zur Schau,
(Had myself to fallow the world to the view,)

Ihre Treu an mir vergessen ward,
(Hers' faithful on to me forget are,)

Das sie mein (er) nicht gewart et hat.
(That she mine not to watch had.)

Hie fernd ein Herr, iz bin ein Knecht,
(Here for one Lord, I be one servant,)

Mir wurde eine alte Schüsselrecht".
(Myself comes one old dish right" .)

The old Knight Prince von Möringer then drew a ring off his finger and threw it into a wine goblet
which he had previously given his wife. The Countess recognized him and begged him pardon.
The old Knight Möringer ask the young "Hach", Count of Neuffen for his old bride back, and in return,
the Count received the hand of the old Knight's daughter in marriage."

The Name

The earliest known ancestors of our Name-Carrier (the Alamannish) began to settle on the banks
of the Moors in northern Germany. They in turn, called themselves "the Moors" from the black-
colored moors they lived on. As time went on, these people moved from these areas and when
ask their names, they would simply reply "Moor".

Many people could not understand why, where or how the Moor's had gotten their Names.
Therefore, the people named Moor soon began to change the spelling to that of "Mohr", which
means "black" in German (after the color of the soil or the waters of the moors).

The Alamannish people had only a Christian Name (Mör or Möringen) in the earliest periods such
as that of "Moor", therefore, as his descendants multiplied, each community became heavily
populated with Moor's. When someone was referring to one particular Moor, he often confused the
other person by not being able to make himself clear as to which particular Moor he was talking of,
i.e. The Fat Moor, The Tall Moor, The Younger Moor, etc. Eventually all Christian names were
adopted as the Surname and each member gave themself a "new" Christian name, different from that
of their surname to be easily identified wherever he or she might be or to whomever his name might
be mentioned by in their conversation.

One variation of the name Möhring (a middle high German name in this case) was adopted to designate
the descendants of Möhr, a tribal chieftain of the Rhineland, in what is now western Germany, who
descended from the clan of Moor (also spelled Mör, Möro, Märo)..
This place was called Möhringen bei Stuttgart, Baden, Germany, which was settled by the Mohr tribe
about 260 A.D. (Ref. "Heimatbuch Möhringen", by Dr. Franz Bühler, Badendruck Gmb. H., Karlsruhe,
1958, S. 282-295, und des Stuttgart Staatarchiv).

Another town near by- Möhringen über Donaueschingen a.d. Donau, Baden, Germany.
Note: There are more than 35 Villages and Towns throughout Germany with variant spelling of the
family Möhring.
An example: "Möhringer" symbolized that he was a Möhring belonging to, or originated from the Town
of Möhring(en). This characteristic of "er" can be seen throughout this illustration:

Möhr - ing - people the
- er - by the

The suffix "ing" and "inger" added to a German or Anglo-Saxon name means: "descendant of" or
"belonging to" the person or thing to whose name it was affixed, i.e. Möhr(ing), Möhr(inger), Möhr(ingen)..
One variant of the name "Mehring" is believed to have descended from the old high Germanic stem of
Morah (Märo), also a descendant of Moor, i.e. Mor(a)(o). From this word, Mohra, the verb name Mora
In Spain, Portugal and Italy, one will find the spellings of Marin(o)(a)(i ).. (Desc's. of the Alemannish..)
Listed here are some of the name-carrier's and what their names meant in Germany:

Moor, Mor(o), Möro, Mohr Northern Germany "Black"
Mehring Hannover area "War Horse"
Möhr "A Thin and Old Horse"
Möhr, Möhring Prussia "Moor or Swamp"
"Ocean or Water "
Möhring, Morrecke, Mohrrecke Saxony "Pioneer or Fighter"
"Recke of the Pi oneer"
Märo, Mar, Mari Lower Saxony "Bright" or "Brill iant"
Moor, Mor(o), Möro, Mohr Bavaria "Famous"
Moring, Möring, Mering "The Man on the Moor or Swamp"
Mehring "An Explorer"

Many people in Germany still spell their name Möhring, but many others in that country use Möring,
Moering, Mehring, Mering and Maring. While in Switerland, one will find the spelling of "Maring". There
is a family in France that spell their name "Marin", but the "n" is nasal and they pronounce it the same
way most of the Mehring's in America do. Over 160 variants of spelling have been found throughout the
centuries in ancient documents, stemming from the original spellings.
Möhring Coat of Arms
(Photo Goes Here)

In the early history of mankind, in Germany as throughout the world, the decmposition of the accumulated
swampy growth was generally a low flat swampy area where the formation of pear or coal were in the
process of being formed. These areas are called "moors" which are generally "black" in color.
The earliest family Coat of Arms were a silver shield with a black left slopping black bar. Eventually, these
black bars, were replaced by a black Mohr's head profile; and many of the silver shields were replaced by
a red shield..
The vast regions from the Netherlands across northern Germany, especially to the town of Rathenow,
are thickly dominated by moors or swamps:

## Hamburg

Oldenburg ## Uelzen # #
# ## ### #### # ### #
# Osnabrück # #### # ##
# ## ##
Hannover ##

Many members of the various spellings within this genealogical data of the European branches have
used a Mohr (black) head profile of some sort in their Coats of Arms. This color has nothing to do with
the origin or descent of the families. The simple word in English would be "speaking arms". Since the
earliest members adopted Moor as their Names, and being the color of the moors and their waters were
"black" that they settled on, this is reflected in their Coats of Arms to denote the originality of the arms in
association with the Family Name.
The arms allusive to the name, e.g. Möhr with Möhring, are called "canting arms" in English, "Rendende
Wappen" in German, and "armes parlantes" in French".. (Ref. Kenfenheurer 's International Index).

Hungarians invading the plains of the Donau (i.e. Towns of Mehring & Mering by Landshut) comes
the Möro (Moro, Mero) ("Man on the Moor") peoples." This statement does not mean that the Moro's
came with the Hungarian races (as part of their people). The Moro's came into this area between the
Lech and the Donau rivers about the 2nd Century A.D., under their Marcomanni King- "Marbod". They
were known to have settled in colonization by 166 A.D., in the area and the author challenges their
statement; according to ancient archive records of "The Races".

AUTHOR's Supposition:
Is it possible that Lorentz Möring who appears 1495 in Gülchsheim, Mfr., Bavaria, is a desc. of
Diemar I the Old (von Möringen), Count in Swabia, Count in the Breis & Augst Districts, Count of
Kaltenthal-Büsnau, Knight de Rütingen (in 1081), part of who's territoral possessions belonged
to the branch of "von Meringen of Kaltenthal", out of Baden-Württemberg lines..
The last members of the Kaltenthal branch supposedly either died out/or sold their Possessions
and moved away in the beginning of the 12th Century. However, the lateral branches continued to
flourish into the 1700's. Therefore, it is plausible that Lorentz Möring's earlier lineage also belonged
to this Diemar I lineage. And owing to the fact that many earlier extensive family possessions were
sold off throughout the centuries, it is also possible that through such sales and later desc's. of
Diemar I "lost" their titles as well, or perhaps the King took up the lands at the time, as well as the
titles, sometimes bearing the titles himself, or giving lands and titles to his trusted personal friends,
who were behind his causes. And all dau's. with Heiress titles and lands married into other families,
therefore, "taking everything off to their husband's bed". And quite often the husbands would assume
all of his wife's titles and lands. In the early centuries for the most part, only the Nobility and the very
rich were well-educated people. Most of them could read and write. Records indicate this achievement
throughout most of Lorentz Mö(h)ring's desc's. as well.

An obscure minor noble family in Swabia, the Zähringen dynasty owed their rise to power to the support
they gave to the cause of the nobility in its long running dispute with Emp. Heinrich IV, King of Germany
during the final decades of the 11th century. They sided with the anti-king of Germany, Rudolf von
Rheinfelden, Duke of Swabia, after his election in 1077. The Zähringer were by that time of sufficient
local importance to be courted by both sides in the dispute, the emperor appointing family members as
Duke of Carinthia and Duke of Swabia at different times. The dynasty concentrated its attention on building
its territorial influence around Freiburg im Breisgau. Like the less power family of the Grafen von Hohenburg
which was centred on Wiesneck, the Zähringer held property in the Black Forest on both banks of the upper
reaches of the river Rhine. It held countships in the Thurgau, Albgau, Ortenau and Breisgau. The ducal branch
acquired the family's Swabian possessions, maintained the title duke after it ceased to be the duke of Swabia
and eventually applied it to the imperial fief of Zähringen which it held directly from the German crown.
The Genealogia Zaringorum was written at the Monastery of St. Peter in the Black Forest, early in the
13th century judging by its recording the death of the youngest son of Konrad, Duke of Zähringen. It is
accompanied by a Continuation, probably written just over a century later as it ends with a marriage dated
elsewhere to Bef. 1318.
Berthold I in 1024 followed into all possessions and titles and became also Count in the Albgau and
the Baar, Bailiff of the Swabian possessions of the Diocese of Bamberg and von Stein, Gengenbach and
Schuttern. He remained loyal and in 1061 was given the honours of Carinthia (Kärnten) and the Margrave
of Verona. In 1072 for the first time Carinthia and Verona were recognized to him by King Henrich IV.

Berthold I lost the papal election to the Abbot's Seat in the Monastery Reichenau in 1071 to a distant
relative, Eberhard III, Count of Nellenburg (d. 1088). Berthold I founded the Benedictine Monastery St.
Peter on the southern border of the Kandel Mountains not far from Zäringen and Freiburg in the Black
Forest in 1073. He also lost the Dukedom of Carinthia to the Eppensteiner through King Heinrich IV in

Duke Berthold II and the counts- "equal how his brother be subject to religion" - Bishop Gebhard III of
Zäringen, Bishop of Konstanz.

Berthold II as Duke of Swabia was a strong champion for his party. Finally in 1096 through Agreement of the
party head of the long-lacked peace of the Swabian lands was made happy, which Berthold II held, when the
Hohenstaufen dukedom of Swabia was renounced. First, formal came to Berthold II, the ducal dignity in the
Districts of Swabia, where his House possessions stood (Breisgau, the Ortenau, the Black Forest and the

From 1096 onward, Berthold II appears in the records of Emperor Heinrich IV, later with Emp. Heinrich V

his attachment on the first named king of Pope Paschalis II in 1103, which he himself severely reproached.
