Janetto de Tassis was since 1490 Courier champion under King Maximilian I and co-founder of Horse Post of the Holy Roman Empire. Successor in this position from 1506 was his nephew Johann Baptista von Taxis. Both master courier workers normally members of their own tribe as couriers. Seraphin de Tassis was first mentioned in 1507 in the postal service of Maximilian. After 1513 Johann Baptista drew back from the line of the imperial courier service in order to take on tasks in Brussels. Then the brothers knew it Seraphin, Bartholomew and Jeremiah (Jerome), and a relative, named Christopher and his son Anton the imperial courier. These five persons received in 1514 by Maximilian I the simple nobility. They justified except Jeremiah, who was postmaster from 1520 to 1565 in Enzweihingen, the Augsburg postmaster dynasty.

The first Augsburger line was founded by(Johann) Anton of Taxis since 1522. He was the sole postmaster in Augsburg and married three times, including with Janettos only child, Catherine of Taxis. Anton's sons John, Ambrose and Christopher of Taxis working in the postal service of King Ferdinand I. They left no male heirs entitled to inherit, and so died from this line. The second line of Augsburg was founded by brothers Seraphin I and Bartholomew.
