Königgrätz is Hradec Králové.
Rokizan (or Rokitzan) is a German spelling of Rokicany.
Wossek is Velký Osek.
Daudleb is Doudleby nad Orlicí; Daudlub is a misspelling of Daudleb.
Adlerkosteletz is Kostelec nad Orlicí
Wessely could be Veselí nad Moravou, although there are some more towns with the name Veselí.
Bezdiekau is the German spelling of Bezděkov. There are several towns with this name.
The terms "Familiant", "Schutzdominium", "zuständig nach", "gehört nach" are legal terms regarding the right of settlement. Ask at the Austria-Czech SIG forum for details.
"Sandel" seems to be a misspelling of "sandek".
