Commemorative plaque for Franz Mozart in Augsburg

Franz Mozart (3 October 1649 – 1693 or 1694) was a mason. He was father of the bookbinder Johann Georg Mozart, the grandfather of Leopold Mozart, and the great-grandfather of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The son of bricklayer David Mozart [de] (1621–1685), Franz worked as a master mason and lived in the Fuggerei beginning in 1681. He was born in Augsburg and died there. A commemorative plaque at his house there, Mittlere Gasse Nr. 14, commemorates him today.

Franz Mozart is not to be confused with his great-great-grandson Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart, the youngest son of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
