Very good information. So a HL must be created, which is nothing to add. Funny is the source. Real estate development, a castle as a business park.
I can contribute something:
The castle Pretzfeld was mentioned in 1145 (or 1182) as the residence of the "Hademar de Bretevelt" (broad field). Pretzfeld itself is much older:
"The origin of the later place Pretzfeld is probably due to the settlement of a clan from the Germanic Thuringian tribe in the 6th Century.The origins of the elevation of this place to a parish may then be in a command of Charlemagne from the year 793 to find."
