From 1596 legal documents are known concerning the inheritance of a Margarethe BINDER, Thomas FRIES, Thomas ANOTSCH and Simon FLEISCHHACKER. In the middle of the 16th century Pamhagen annexed the (area of the) former village Micheldorf, which had been destroyed in 1529 by the Turks. The Pamhagen inhabitants subsequently became Lutherans. Lutheran church records for 1653-1660 have been used to (try to) prove Lutheran immigration from Styria and the Bodensee area in 1606-1620. PATSCH, PHILIPP, MUHR, GRAISY, GUTSCHI and DENK have been said to be Styrian names, WUNDERLE (WUNDERLICH, WUNDERLE) has been said to be a Bodensee area name. The Urbarium for 1675 gives the following surnames: 6 ANDERT; 4 RAUHORT, MUT, LENTSCH; 3 KOHLNDORFER, WUNDERELE (WUNDERLE, WUNDERLICH), KOTZENMACHER, OBRECHT; 2 WEISS, SCHNEIDER, FLACKER, KRAMMER, SCHUSTER, SCHERER (SCHIER), IRMITZ, FRONAUER, LANG, BAUMGARTNER, PERICH, HOLZBAUER; 1 HALBBAUER, WENIGER, DÜNNAGL, NERMANZ (NEMAC ?), DACHS, GRAF, ROTH, KLENGER, GUTENDINGER, BIERBAUER, FROMM, GRÜNBERGER, PFANN, PREINER, GELBMANN, RAHMKÄS, KÜHRAIN, PLANK, REINHARDT, BUSCH, ECKER (EGGER), TURKER, MANNER, HEISS, MAURER, RIEPL, WORTA (BERTA ?), WIEGER, KOPPA (KAPI), KAINZ, WEINER, SCHEDL, RIECHEL, GROSS, DENK, GREISY, MÜNZENEDER, SPRENZL, FLEISCHHACKER, KLINGER, SCHAFFER, TATEN, MUHR; additional Söllner surnames: FUCHS, WAGNER, WEIDINGER, PFAIDL, SAGENMEISTER, KEGL, KAMITZ, HOFER.
Catholic church records started in 1681 by a priest named Gregor STANITZ, stopped in 1683, restarted in 1686; seems that the Turks burned down village and church during the 2nd siege of Vienna (1683). 1734 Wallern became an independent parish, having belonged to Pamhagen until then. Teachers: Paul STUPPACHER (1726-1728); Josef HALLER (1800-1808; married to a STUPPACHER); the "praeceptores" (assisting teachers) Johann NEUKAM (1807) and Franz WESSELY (1819); Michael GRAIL (1810-1825); Georg OPITZ (1825; praeceptor); Johann NABINGER (1830-59); Franz KIRCHKNOPF (1860-1902); assisting teachers Franz SCHÖNTAG and Stefan MATTASCHITZ; Johann KRAJASCHITZ (KEMENY) (1902-1921).
