Foundation Information
 

According to Link, a small group of Beguines (originally numbering three) dwelled in a house next to the (cathedral?) chapter in Aschaffenberg.

 
First Members
 

Among these beguines was Petrissa von Röllbach, who contributed in 1285 a mill in Röllbach and two acres of vinyard in Heidebach (Großheubach) to the community. Her sister Mechthild granted three acres of vinyard to the community. Petrissa retained the rents from these properties and all her other donation for the duration of her life. Petrissa's father was the knight Harwich von Röllbach. Another member of the community was Adelheid from Aschaffenberg, a neice of the provost Gottfried of Schmerlenbach (Link, 613-14).
