The book of 1539 of Sigmund Schining (found here: Cod.I.6.2o.5 – Medienserver der Universität Augsburg ) contains the Augsburger Fechtordnung 1v-5v, and Frankfurter Fechtordnung 6v-20v. These chapter book were transcribed by Olivier Dupuis with some help of Robert Brunner, Alexander Kiermayer, and Andreas Meier. The transcription was the base for the following list of Captains (Hauptmann) of this guild. I transferred the names into a more modern spelling. The dates are partly calculated but most of them are named in the manuscript. The election of the new captain was usually done in the autumn after the 8th of September.

See the complete member list of Masters in the The Marxbrüder chronicle from the Cod.I.6.2o.5.

To this list I added further names of masters and captains collected from various sources.
