Jean de Büren 1567-1622

Jean was the first son of Jean de Büren (1544-1594) and Barbara Koch (1550-1577). He was said to have been a gifted magistrate and was a very religious and pious man. He became a member of the Grand Council of Bern in 1591, would later become a Senator and was appointed as Governor of the Abbey of Königsfelden in 1608.

For many generations the de Büren almost died out, and that was almost the case with Jean. He would not live long enough to see his last son David start a new era in the family, one of greater prominence, wealth and vigor.
