II.1.1 First Bavarian Hutsteiner records
The first bavarian records are about Lienhard Hutsteiner’s records stating his tax payments in 1539 (http://hutstein.org/2018/01/12/first-named-hutsteiner/) and the dispute of 1560 (The millers’ dispute of 1560 | HUTSTEIN Origins), i.e. he became the first recorded bavarian Hutsteiner.
The third one we find in 1617 when Paul Hutsteiner took over the seat in the church of Wegscheid from a man called Oberwelfel. Likely, Paul was a citizen of Wegscheid as no location is mentioned within this record.
