German Names from Kosice, 1300 to 1500

This list of names was taken from a register of mayors and governors at Mikluš Prison, a medieval prison/legislative center in Kosice, Slovakia. The names cover the two centuries from 1300 to 1500; as far as I know the original spellings have been preserved. Master Talan Gwynek has compiled notes on the surnames.

My thanks to Lady Anya Mstyslavyaya for collecting the names for me.

Occurrence of Given Names I have eliminated double counts where the entries appear to refer to one person. Thus I have assumed that the Albertus lsted in 1347 is the same as the one in 1361, and similarly that Arnold in 1307 is the same Arnoldus in 1343. That one is not entirely clear but since the other Arnoldus entries have surnames I think it is a reasonable assumption.
