Kaspar Ullmann

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kaspar Anton Ullmann (* January 16, 1767 in Neudek; † July 28, 1853 ibid) was a Bohemian mining master, surveyor, land surveyor, imperial and royal branch tithe collector, and mathematical and physical instrument maker.

Life

Kaspar Ullmann was born as the son of Anton Jakob Ullmann (1732-1807) and his wife Maria Magdalena née Linck (* 1731) in Neudek in the Ore Mountains. Already his father and great uncle were active in Neudek as a mining master.

In 1799, Ullmann, as surveyor and surveyor, produced a topographic boundary map of the royally free mining town and dominion of Elbogen in five sheets.[1] In the beginning he worked as an adjunct of the mining office and on January 1, 1801 he took over the office of the mining master from his retired father, but not as a state mining master, but as a mining master of the lordship. He was confirmed in this capacity by the k. k. Bergoberamt St. Joachimsthal on February 12, 1802. Finally, Ullmann was appointed by the Imperial and Royal Mining Court of St. Joachimsthal as a branch tithe collector for the Imperial and Royal branch tax office remaining in Neudek[2] and remained in this function until its dissolution in 1851.

It is also known about Ullmann that he was a skilled master watchmaker who made mathematical and physical instruments.[3] Thus, in 1824, he is specifically listed as such in the Darstellung des Fabrik- und Gewerbswesens in seinem gegenwärtigen Zustande (Representation of the Factory and Trade System in its Present State )[4] and still mentioned as such in the Handbook of the Kingdom of Bohemia for the year 1851.[5] Ullmann died of old age in 1853 at the age of 86 and was the penultimate mining master of Neudek.

The son Franz Anton Ullmann (1800-1864) is presumably identical with the last mining foreman of Neudek, who had an accident in a water-filled die in the Hirschkopfzeche in the autumn of 1864.
