Sumiswald, Trachselwald, Canton of Bern, Switzerland



 



Tree: Eby/Aebi and Bernethy Family
Notes: Sumiswald is a municipality in the district of Trachselwald in the canton of Berne, Switzerland.
Sumiswald consists of three localities (Sumiswald, Grünen and Wasen) in the lower Emmental. It is one of the largest municipalities in the canton with an area of 5933 ha. The town has a population of around 5,000. The name Sumiswald is first mentioned in 1130. The name either comes from the Germanic settler "Suomolt", the Latin term summa vallis ("bank over the valley") or the designation "Zum Oswald" ("to Oswald"), because in the Middle Ages there was a chapel in Sumiswald dedicated to Oswald of Northumbria. From 1225, Sumiswald was a commandery of the Teutonic Knights of the "Ballei" Swabia-Alsace-Burgundy. In 1525, the town bought its way out of serfdom, but stayed a part of the Teutonic Knights even after the Protestant Reformation was introduced in 1528; Sumiswald was sold to the city of Berne for 36,000 Reichsthaler in 1698. Hans Haslibacher, who was decapitated on October 20, 1571 in Berne because of his Anabaptist conviction came from Sumiswald; his decapitation was the last execution of an Anabaptist in Berne.
