Klein Nembschitz (Jihomoravský kraj, Czech Republic)
Klein Nembschitz (Czech, Němčice), a village near Upper Bayanovic, east of Auspitz (Hustopece) in Moravia, where the Hutterian Brethren had a Bruderhof which they had to abandon in 1559. They moved to Pellertitz (Polehraditz), and again set up a Bruderhof, from which they were driven in 1563 (Beck, 210, 214).
In 1562 the Hutterian Brethren also founded a Bruderhof in Klein Nembschitz near Pralitz on the right bank of the Jihlava and acquired a mill from Sigmund von Zastrizel, Baron of Kaunitz. In 1565 the brotherhood chose Leonhard Dax as preacher, who served temporarily as a missionary to the Palatinate. When they were driven out of their households in the Thirty Years' War, they settled in Farkeshin, a village on the Dudwaag, southeast of Tyrnau (Trnava). (Beck, 214, 410.)
