The Sources:

L. Baroti:
"Beitrage zur Geschichte des Vampyrismus in Südungarn"
in: "Ethnologische Mitteilungen aus Ungarn", Budapest, 1894

The Case:

1756. 27. April. --
"Temesvarer Verwalteramt berichtet dass 30 Seelen in dem Dorf Knez seit zehn Tagen gestorben sind und selbes ouf Wambirn den Argwohn habe."

In other words:

The "Verwalteramt" of Temesvar (= Timisoara) reports that in the village Knez 30 people have died ten days ago, and there is a suspiscion that it is the work of "Wambirs".

The Date:

The report dates back to the year of 1756.

The Place:

Knes (German) or Knez (Hungarian) is now called Satchinez (Romanian) and can be found North-West of Timisoara.

Possible Follow-Up:

Following a lead in some weird old magazine, that almost exclusively contained references to other people's work, I found Prof. Dr. Baroti's 2 page article in another old magazine. Amazingly the good man managed to squeeze no less than 13 cases of vampirism on to those pages. So go check it out !
