Sibilla Köhl-Cleric (1651–†1723)

Sibilla Köhl married Bernhard von Cleric (1618-†1691), pharmacist and city captain, 33 years her senior, around 1670, when she was only 19 years old. Bernhard von Cleric was the brother of Martin von Cleric, a close friend of their father, and son of the wealthy and influential mayor Martin von Cleric and Appolonia Pitsch. Bernhard von Cleric had previously been married to Dorothea Sprecher von Bernegg. His first wife, however, died in 1662 without any descendants.

Sibilla was more fortunate with her choice than her sisters, even though she became a widow at the age of 40 and had to raise the 5 children alone. Since her husband had been very wealthy, she had no financial worries. Her children all received a good education and later held important offices in the city of Chur.

  1. Martin Cleric (1671-†1724), Dr. med. pharmacist, ∞ Elisabeth von Bavier. After the early death of his first wife ∞ Anna Paula Enderlin von Montzwick, a scion of the Maienfeld noble family.
