    In 1739, the Jews from the neighboring community of Neufeld (who were also under the protection of the Esterházys) were permanently expelled from their homes, ostensibly to stop the spread of an epidemic. They were resettled in Eisenstadt, Mattersdorf, and the five other Jewish communities in the region.

    In Mattersdorf the exiles from Neufeld were compelled to drop whatever last name that they had used in their former home and were required to adopt the surname NEUFELD.

    It appears that this happened in Eisenstadt also. Therefore people with the surname of NEUFELD are not necessarily kin but it can be assumed that the family originally came from Neufeld.
