May 18, 1808

“Order” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria, Hungary]: “[…] His Majesty, have come to the decision in reference to the Royal Court Chancellery Decree of May 7, 1808, that the ordered rejection of Jews who emigrate to Hungary from other hereditary lands back to their place of birth, are to only apply to those, who – after a decade of residency in Hungary – have not acquired the Inkolat* (‘Incolat’), or have not gotten married there after emigrating. […]” [Researcher’s note: *Inkolat is an old term from the rights of the nobility and could either be obtained by birth or formal admission into the societies of knights. It could award the recipient permission to purchase or acquire noble estates or to participate in state councils etc.]
