Adelheyt (Adelheid) Egli (Egly), the wife of Felix Landis, was imprisoned at Oetenbach, canton of Zürich, Switzerland, in 1642 and repeatedly harshly treated. After four years in prison, she escaped, but found her house stripped by the authorities, who had confiscated the 5,000 guilders, and put her children out among strangers.
