Aalen  (City of)/ Ostalbkreis (Ostalb Dist.), Baden-Wuertttemberg.  Location.  History. Dating back to 8th and 5th BC lived the Meslithic settlements in this area.  They left traces which include tools made of flint.  Behind Kocherburg castle there was found traced of humans living there during the Bronze Age.  The Celtics fortified the Schlossbaufeld settlement.  Along came the Romans after they abandon the Lines Line around 150 AD and set up camp and then a town in 150 AD and it became part of the Roman Empire and the new line known as "Rhaetian Limes".  The Roman cavalry unit "Ala II Flavia milliaria" were housed here and the remains of this is called "Kastell Aalen".  Forced to retreat, the Romans gave up the for t and moved bank to the Rhine and Danube Rivers.  Once the Romans left historians loose sight and knowledge of this area until the Middle Ages.  In this area a village of Hammerstadt is mention in 839 but Aalen is not directly mentioned until in 1136 along with a man by the name of Conrad of Aalen.  In 1214 to 1246 it's told the House of Hohenstaufen founded the town of Aalen.  The area was gained by the Count of Oettingen who exchanged Aalen for money from the House of Wuerttenberg in 1358 or 1359.  Village was destroyed in 1388 during the war between the Dukes of Bavaria and the Alliance of Swabian Cities.  On 3 Dec 1360  Emperor Charles IV of the Holy Roman Empire.  Charles IV declared Aalen as an Imperial free city which it kept until 1803.  Reformation resulted in Aalen's major change from Catholic to Protestant which was followed by the Thirty Year's War during which resulted in Aalen swinging back to Catholic which resulted in the Protestant Union and afterwards both were able to worship and practice in Aalen together.  1634 proved just as difficult for the townspeople as.  War and soldiers destroyed most of the city. The  Swedes, Benard of Saxe-Weimar army and the Croatians looted what was left.  During the Nine Years' War (1688) French troops enter Aalen and took their turn looting and destroying the town.  The French marched through, again during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1702 and again during the War of Austrian Succession in 1741.  The Imperial troops marched through in 1743,,, With the Catholic and Lutherans still in conflict it was ruled that both would have joint rule....  During the War of the Firs Coalition (1796) Aalen was looted. One has to wonder what there was to loot by this time.  Anyway, in 1801 the Treat of Luneville lead to the Germans Mediatisation in 1803 giving Aalen to the Electorate of Wuerttemberg, which became part of the Duchy of Wuerttemberg and later the Kingdom of Wuerttemberg.  Then came the War of the Third Coalition.  On 6 Oct 1805 Napoleon arrived in Aalen with 40,000.... Two days later the Austrian and Bavarian troops moved into town as the French left...  According to wikipedia the town clerk is credited in saying:  "no feather could describe" what was happening to Aalen.  In 1811 the municipality of Unterrombach was formed which merged parts of Aalen and territory of the Barons of Woellwarth.  Napoleon was defeated.  The town walls, gates and towers fell into disrepair.   Then the stones were taken and used elsewhere...  The fortification vanished....~


Aich n. Worms/ ___, Pfalz  [= Eich / Alzey-Worms (am der Rhine) Dist., Rhineland-Palatinate] Often times "A" and "E" are interchangable.  Eich and Aich are the same place.

Ainingen / __, Wuerttemberg  [Ainingen (??)] NOTE: I assume someone miss typed, which, unfortunaely, I am often guilty, and the village name may be Ensingen.  Tracking down other Stumpp/Stumpf family members I believe the village is Ensingen since Stumpps are listed as having migr. from Unterensingen (Unter.Einsingen = Under Ensingen)/ Nuerteingen, Baden-Wuerttemberg.  Also, sometimes "A" can be "E" as it is for Aich / Eich village.
