Konrad Lemlin of Sintelfingen (called Angelfingen in the Passau records) was an Anabaptist martyr who had baptized the wife of Michel (Khumbauf) of Bruchsal, Baden, Germany, at Barnbach in 1530 and Hans Steuber (Stober) of Durlach, Baden, in 1531. At the end of 1531 he was seized with his wife Ursula Spanner of Gmünd and put into the prison in Vaihingen on the Enz, Wurttemberg, because of his Anabaptist convictions. Because he would not recant he was burned at the stake. His wife, who also remained true to her faith, was also to have been executed, but because of her unborn child she was spared; she had to swear that she would leave Wurttemberg and never return.
