Neuschwanger = 'newly pregnant' (or 'pregnant again')
The name was probably 'Neuenschwander'. THe Neuenschwander were citizens in Eggiwil.
Never heard about 'Meckenmuhl'.
The closest place from Eggiswil where the 'Steffen' were native is Lützelflüh.
The Stauffer were also citizens from Eggiwil.
You should find these people in the Staatsarchiv Bern.
