I would like to know the meaning of kuenishe Freibauern who lived in the
Eisenstein (Zelezna Ruda), Bohemia. Please tell me about property ownership
in the Eisenstein region, which was settled by Bavarian settlers in the mid to
late 1600s. Did these settlers get free land? Who were the land-owners for
this area from the 1600- 1800s? When did everyday citizens begin owning land?
Any ideas on books in German or English that would explain this for me.
