Zuppinger (Supinger) Ancestry

Zuppinger
The name orginated from a farm hamlet "Zuppigen" near St. Gallenkappel in present day Swiss Canton of St. Gall. Folks from there were "Zuppigers" and one branch that moved away wound up as Zuppinger. A young married couple, first names unknown, are listed as residents of the parish of Fischenthal in Canton Zurich in a 1469 tax record. Much thanks to Daniel Bly for the information on this page!

Rudolph Zuppinger   ?   Rudolph Zuppinger was listed in later records as the tenant of a farm called "Wydum" that belonged to the monastery at Fischenthal.

The farm became property of the Reformed Church, but the descendants of Rudolph continued to occupy it for another century and half. The six sons were Vinzenz, Simon, Hans, Moritz, Jacob and Wilhelm.
