Miller and bakers

We know that Lienhardt Hutsteiner was a miller on the newly erected Hutsteiner mill close to Messnerschlag. Unfortunately we do not anything about his children.

But we can find two more bakers in are family history: first there was Andreas Hutsteiner, second there had been Martin Hutsteiner.

Baker and miller profession at theses times had been quite related to each other, i.e. we can observe often that some children of millers learned the bakery profession.

Taking that into account – and that no other Hutsteiner ever was a miller or baker – we can assume that Andreas, who was became quite prominent himself, was a child of famous Lienhardt Hutsteiner. And also Martin Hutsteiner belongs to this family, perhaps a child of Andreas.
