VEIGL, Franz Xavier, missionary, born in Gratz, Austria, 1 December, 1723 ; died in Klagenfurt, in the same country, 19 April, 1798. He entered the Society of Jesus at Vienna in 1738, and for several years was professor in the Jesuit college there. He was sent to the American missions in 1753, and labored among the South American Indians until 1777, when he returned to Europe, and was appointed professor at Judenburg. He wrote "Reisen einiger Missionitrien der Gesellschaft Jesu in Amerika" (Nuremberg, 1785) and "Franz Xav. Veigl's vormaligen Missionars der Gesellschaft Jesu, grundliche Nachrichten fiber die Verfassung der Landschaft Maynas in Sud-Amerika bis zum Jahr 1768" (1798; in Latin, 1792). No. 773 and No. 774 of Stocklein's "Welt-Bore" (Gratz, 1727 et seq.) contain his "Summa epistolarum duarum ad cognatos suos in itinere scriptarum 1753 et 1755 quibus id ipsum et quae in eo observavit describit" and "Epistola ad cosdem ex Quito 1 Septembris 1755 qua horribilem terrae in civitate hac, et statum missionum ad flumen Maragnon describit."
