Trachselwald, Canton of Bern, Switzerland


Tree: Eby/Aebi and Bernethy Family
Notes: Trachselwald is a municipality in the district of Trachselwald in the Swiss canton of Berne. The name of this municipality means "Drechsler-Wald" ("Woodturner-Forest) and was first mentioned in 1131. The village around Trachselwald Castle first belonged to the barons of Trachselwald, then to the barons of Rüti bei Lyssach, and then finally to the barons of Sumiswald until the sovereignty over the village was sold to the city of Berne in 1408. The castle became the sheriffhood. In 1574 the village was destroyed by a fire. During the Swiss Peasants' War, on April 3, 1653, there was a gathering in the inn Tanne, which became the first public appearance of the peasants' leader Niklaus Leuenberger, who was executed in Trachselwald Castle on August 27 of the same year.
