The Sources:

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

The Case:

1753. 14. Feber. --
"Csakovaer Verwalteramt zeigt an dass in dem Districtsort Wermesch die Vampire grassiren sollen."
(Rot. Csakovaer Verwalteramt, II. 542)

Which means that the "Verwalteramt" of Csakova reports that in Wermesch, a village within the district, there is a plague of vampires.

The Date:

The report dates back to the year of 1753.

The Place:

Wermesch has been renamed to Vermes. It can be found South-East of Timisoara and South-West of Lugoj.

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 !
