Brodeffer or Brodesser?

Recommended Posts

I was looking through on-line sources to find information about 2. Bayern Artillerie Regiment in the 1870s and keep finding the word "Brodeffer" or "Brodesser".  Unfortunately, I can't find a definition for the word anywhere.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Not a definition but a person:

Karl Ritter von Brodeßer, the Regimental "Inhaber" (literally owner) or honorary regimental chief from 1870 to 1876.

Thanks guys!  Sometimes I can't find the forest for the trees.  I had found the stuff on Wiki and some other sites, but when I was looking over all the on-line sources such as the Regierungsblatt, I was finding this kind of stuff:

https://books.google.com/books?id=K-pTAAAAcAAJ&pg=PR48-IA58&dq=Brodeffer&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi9u5yG4rTJAhVD4SYKHcvUCcEQ6AEIHzAA#v=onepage&q=Brodeffer&f=false

Rather than the name of the Regiment, I somehow came to the conclusion that it must be some sort of rank in the Regiment or a duty position related to the laying of the guns.   Thank you again.
