Vinzenz Zuppinger

Born about 1490. (S2. He was of Fischenthal, Zurich, Switzerland. Son of Rudolph ZUPPINGER. He fought in the Italian campaigns with the King of France between 1513 and 1515.

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!
