Dönz von Luzein GR

Post by F.Meignant » Thu 15. Nov 2012, 12:09

Bonjour,
Désolé de poster ce message en Français : je ne parle hélas pas Allemand… English text below.
Le trisaïeul de ma femme se nommait Christian Gustave TEUNTZ. Il est né à Moulins (Allier, 03, France) en 1844 et est décédé dans la même ville en 1910. Il s’est marié le 17/1/1870 Moulins avec Jeanne BONNEAU.
Le père de Christian Gustave était Gilbert Gustave THŬNTZ, né à Moulins le 14/1/1817 et décédé dans la même ville le 29/6/1872. Le 16/07/1841 il avait épousé, toujours à Moulins, Marie (dite Alexandrine) PINASSON, née le 13/5/1822 à Donzy (Nièvre, 58, France) et décédée le 4/4/1899 à Moulins.
Le père de Gilbert Gustave s’appelait Christian TOËNS. Il s’est marié à Moulins le 20 mars 1816 avec Pétronille SAULNIER, née dans cette même ville le 27 mai 1789. Selon l’acte de mariage, Christian TOËNS est né en 1785 en Suisse, Canton des Grisons, District de Haute-Engadine, dans le village de Tuntz. Il était le fils de Gaspard et Marguerite TOËNS. Selon le même acte, Christian était pâtissier et son père, Gaspard, aubergiste.
Selon un de leurs descendants, le nom de Gaspard TOËNS s’écrivait aussi DÖNZ et Gaspard avait un second fils également prénommé Gaspard.
Christian TOËNS a quitté la Suisse avant 1816, à une date que je n’ai pas pu déterminer.
Malgré mes recherches, je n’ai pas non plus pu retrouver le village de Tuntz en Haute-Engadine… Il ne se trouvait peut-être pas dans ce District.
Disposeriez-vous d’informations sur cette famille ?
Un grand merci !
F.M.

My wife’s great-great-grandfather was called Christian, Gustave TEUNTZ. He was born in Moulins (Allier, 03, France) in 1844 and died in the same city in 1910. On 17/1/1870, he married Jeanne BONNEAU in Moulins.
His father was Gilbert, Gustave THŬNTZ, born in Moulins on 14/1/1817 and deceased in the same town on 29/6/1872. On 16/07/1841, he married in Moulins, Marie (Alexandrine) PINASSON, born 13/5/1822 at Donzy (Nièvre, 58, France) and deceased 4/4/1899 in Moulins.
Gilbert Gustave’s father was Christian TOËNS. He was married in Moulins 20/03/1816 with Pétronille SAULNIER, born in the same city 27/05/1789. According to his marriage certificate, Christian TOËNS was born in 1785 in Switzerland, Canton des Grisons, District of Haute-Engadine, in a village called Tuntz. He was the son of Gaspard and Marguerite TOËNS. According the same certificate, Christian was a pastry-cook and his father, Gaspard, an inn-keeper.
According to one of their descendants, Gaspard TOËNS’s first name was also written DÖNZ and Gaspard got a second son, also named Gaspard.
Christian TOËNS entered France before 1816, at an undetermined date.
Despite my search, I could not find the village of Tuntz in Haute-Engadine… Maybe it was not in this District.
Would you have some information about this family?
Many thanks!
F.M.

Bonjour, il pourrait s'agir éventuellement du village de Putz dans la commune actuelle de Luzein, où - entre autres - les Dönz possèdent la bourgeoisie. Mais cette commune se trouvait dans le district d'Oberlandquart avant 2001.
Je vous propose de contacter les Archives de l'état à Coire, qui connaissent mieux la situation avant 1800.

Merci Peter.
Je vais essayer...
J'ai aussi fait quelques recherches avec le patronyme DÖNZ, mais je n'ai rien trouvé...

Bonjour,
(English text below)
Je n’avais initialement pas posté ce sujet dans le sous-forum des Grisons car je n’avais aucune certitude quant au lieu d’origine de ces personnes.

Cela dit, il semble que cette famille n’ait pas laissé beaucoup de traces !
J’ai découvert hier seulement que Christian TOËNS (qui a immigré en France avant 1816) avait aussi un frère, Henry TEUNTZ. Henry est décédé à Moulins (France, Allier, 03) le 25/03/1848, âgé de 58 ans. Il était donc probablement né vers 1790. Son acte de décès, enregistré à Moulins, mentionne le nom de sa mère, que j’ignorais jusqu’à présent : Marguerite MAYER. Il n’y a hélas pas d’autres informations.
Cela vous inspire-t-il ?
Merci !
F.M.

So, he was probably born around 1790. His death declaration, registered in Moulins, mentions the family name of his and Christian’s mother: Marguerite MAYER. Unfortunately, no more information!
Does it help?
Thank you

Christian Dönz ist in keinem Kirchenbuch aus dem Engadin und auch nicht in Luzein eingatragen. Hingegen ist Andreas Dönz geb. 18.12.1782 in Zuoz in Luzein eingetragen aber nicht in Zuoz. Am 11.11.1792 ist wieder ein Andrea Dönz geboren, hier ist der Eintrag in Zuoz aber nicht in Luzein. Meine Vermutung ist, dass er in Zuoz geboren ist aber nirgens eingetragen. Dazwischen ist noch Anna Peter und Hans geboren immer in Luzein eingetragen.

Kaspar Dönz geb. 20.12.1754 ist verheiratet am 7.4.1775 in Luzein mit Margaretha Meyer

Kinder:
Jacob 23.6.1776 Luzein
Verena 5.7.1778 Luzein
Caspar 26.1.1787 Luzein
Conradin 23.8.1781 Luzein
Andreas 18.12.1782 Zuoz
Anna 20.3.1783 Pany
Peter 20.9.1787 Luzein
Hans 8.9.1789 Luzein
Andrea 11.11.1792 Zuoz

Wenn sie mir die E-Mail Adress angeben kann ich ihnen noch mehr daten und Bilder senden

Bonjour,
Un grand merci pour ces informations concernant la famille DÖNZ!
J'ai vu votre premier message ce matin mais je n'avais pas le temps d'y répondre.
Je suis surpris que Christian ne semble enregistré nulle part...!
Je suis bien entendu intéressé par toutes informations complémentaires concernant cette branche de la famille de ma femme.
Je vous ai également répondu par "mail privé"
Cordialement
François MEIGNANT

Good afernoon,
Many thanks for the information about the DÖNZ family!
I got your first mail this morning but had no time to answer immediately.
I'm quite surprised by the fact that Christian seems not registered...!
I'm of course interested with any information about this branch of my wife's family tree.
I sent you an answer by "private mail" too.
Thanks again
François MEIGNANT

Hello I have Doenz ancestry. My Great Grandfather was Christian Doenz son of Hans Doenz and Anna (Loetscher) from Pany, Switzerland. He has brothers named Peter, Andrew, Leonard, Nicholas, and John. And one sister Leni. Most immigrated to Canada in the early 1900's. Could we be of the same family? Thank you for your time.

Hello,
Here is the page of my tree concerning "my" Christian DÖNZ. Maybe they have the same origin, but it seems that it's not the same person than "yours": his father was named Gaspard...

Good luck!

Donz in Luzern

Dear,

I am a Belgian genealogist and I discovered the forum on google.
This is my first message on the forum, please excuse the fact I am writing it in English, my written German is not good enough.

I am looking for Georg Donz (+1850 Brussels) birth certificate. According to his death certificate, he is born in Lutzen (Luzern?), Switzerland in 1800 or 1801.

It is probable that he was the brother of Jacques Donz https://gw.geneanet.org/marani?lang=en& ... ues&n=donz https://gw.geneanet.org/parmentier3?n=d ... &p=jacques

Indeed, they share the same name, the same job (confectioner), and their potential father left Switzerland before 1816.

Would you mind helping me to make this link?

Thank you very much,

Welcome to the forum, Lucien !

Dönz is not a name with citizenships in canton Lutern - but in Graubünden, including Luzein. Also Graubünden was famous for their confectioners, and many emigrated to France. I have therefore shifted your contribution to this topic (Dönz von Luzein), where people researching this family have already been involved.

Thank you very much Wolf, it is very interesting !

I am now trying to relate Georg to the other Donz/Dönz/Toënz, ... Is it an online archive for Luzein for births in 1800-1801?

Best regards,



Wolf

Luzein church records (1642-1875) have been filmed and digitized by the Mormons. Unfortunately Graubünden has not (yet) allowed to make these records freely available - you have to visit one of their Family History Centres.

I wrote to the nearest "Family history Centre", but no answer for the moment.

On the wedding act of the first belgian Donz, I found his parents names : Christian (farmer) and Anna Donz, from Luzein, GR.

Sadly, I couldn't find them among the other Donz/Toënz/Teuntz...

Maybe the birth certificate can give me his maiden name?

Best regards,

Hello Lucien, there is a Jori Tonz born to Christen Tönz and Anna Tönz 19 November 1801 in Luzein, Graubunden if that appears to be your ancestor I could post a copy of the birth record.

Having grown up in the Grison, I believe that Jori is another form of Jörg or Georg. So I would suspect that this could be the man and is well worth more research.
