Rampersdorf (Jihomoravský kraj, Czech Republic)
Rampersdorf (Ladná, Lanštorf), a Hutterite Bruderhof in Moravia, located between Kostel (Gostal) and Lundenburg (coordinates: 48° 48' 21" N, 16° 52' 23" E). As early as 1545 the Brethren here and at Pulgram and Schackowitz were plundered by Anderle von Villach, who wanted to take back into his own possession the estate which his brother Stoffel von Villach had granted the Hutterian Brethren when he united with them. In 1576 Johann von Zierotin confiscated four horses; "he needed them down in Hungary for use in war or things in which we do not help; therefore he took them by force; he, to be sure, repaid a part, but spoiled enough." In the Hungarian war a brother was killed and three persons taken away on 28 June 1605. At the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, 19-20 September 1619, Rampersdorf was plundered and burned, and on 8 October 1621, the miller's wife was drowned.
