He was Bailiff (Pfleger) of Biedermannsdorf, Bez.Mödling NÖ, the estate
was owned by the Liechtenstein family until 1607.
He took service with the Imperial Court and in 1621 he was a Paymaster (Kriegs
Zahlambt diener) in the Imperial Army Pay Office (Hofkammerarchiv, Akten der
Hoffinanz, 1621, Prot. Expdt.s.29, 12 Jänner ). In the absence of the Imperial
Paymaster-in-Chief Engelbrunner was acting Paymaster-in-Chief at the Hungarian
Diet (Reichstag ) as well as at the Imperial Diet and Congress of Princes at
Regensburg (1630). The last reference found is a letter end 1630 send to Warcommissioner
(Kriegskommissar also called Commissarius) Engelbrunner end 1630 in which is
referred to the Regiment zu Fuss of Colonel Julius Count von Witzleben
The Hofkammer archivs mention his wife twice that year:
1.Dorothea Englprunnerin travelpass letter for household effects and several
persons to Frankfuhrt am Main;
2.Travelpass letter for Dorothea Engelbrunnerin and her family through the Holy
Roman Empire to her husband.
Frankfurt-am-Main was the constitutional centre of the Holy Roman Empire.
Christoph apparently decided to leave the Imperial Service because of his protestant
faith. From 1631/2 -1634 Christoph served the Regent of Württemberg at his
Court in Stuttgart (Pfeilsticker, Wurttembergische Dienerbuch, §§
396 & 2804 ). In the battle of Nördlingen on 6 Sept.1634 the Imperial
(Roman Catholic) forces defeated the Protestant and Swedish troops. Stuttgart
(and Württemberg) fell on 20 Sept. and the Emperor established control over
Württemberg. The Heilbronn league troops under Bernard of Saxe-Weimar withdrew
in November to the leftbank of the Rhine (Elsas). Christoph and his family fled
to Strassburg as did the Regent and the ducal family.
From 1634-1640 Christoph was Generalkommissar to the King of Sweden in Strassburg
, Elsass. End 1640 he went back to Stuttgart as Chiefguardian (Obervogt) of Duke
Eberhard III von Württemberg. He died a fortnight after his arrival in Stuttgart.
Dorothea, her two daughters Salome and Katharina, son Christoph and the daughter
of her husband`s brother Joachim Maria Magdalena were taken care of by the Duke`s
family and the girls were educated wih the princesses at the Court.
Christoph Hans sent a Petition to the Roman Emperor, King of Hungary and Bohemia
etc. for Zuerkennung des Reichsadels und Wappenverbesserung with copies of the
Patent of Nobility (sub A), Armorial Bearings (sub B) and Noble Coat of Arms
(sub D) granted by Your Imperial Majesty`s etc. Highly Honoured Father The Imperial
Highness Archduke Karl to my father and his offspring born in wedlock and their
heirs/heirs. The Petition was for himself and for his only surviving brother
At the time he sent the Petition, Commissarius Engelbrunner was posted to the
Army of General the Duke of Mecklenburg, Friedland and Sagans as Mustercommissioner
and Quartermaster-General and he was staying in Meinigen until further orders
of the Imperial Military Council.
The Imperial Assent of this Petition is highly probable because the newly granted
Coat of Arms is in the Austrian State-archives (Allgem. Verwaltungsarchiv, Reichsakten,
Wappenbuch II, S.18).
