German term or phrase: Beumund ?
From a handwritten Bavarian marriage contract, dated 1831: "Nachdem die anwesenden Aeltern beider Verlobten mit der Verehelichung ihrer Kinder einverstanden waren, und der Gemeindevorsteher Hoerl den Gemeindebeschluß zu den Akten gegeben hatte und den guten [Beumund?] des Verlobten Fischer bezeugt hatte…" The critical word is difficult to make out. I would think it would refer to the prospective bridegroom's conduct or intentions, but that is only based on context. Any ideas?
