Family history

The Heilbronn family of the Stupphil or Steffalter is first documented in 1287 in the person of Heinrich Stupphil. Stupphil was of great importance in the Heilbronn patriciate because he was one of the three seniores there . The Stupphil are likely to be identical to the Steffalter family, who later appeared in the person of Mayor Benz Steffalter.
