Christian Hutsteiner left Hartmannsdorf and joined the staff of the court in Dresden and his uncle, the royal secret chamber clerk Christian Hutsteiner, there. In 1648 he became the King’s royal cashier and went to Poland, which was ruled by the Saxonian king during these times.

He was mentioned several times at Roman Catholic records of the Church of the Holy Cross in Warszawa-Srodmiescie as godfather, but baptism of his own children in Warsaw are still not found.

A family legend says that in Warsaw he made his career and became colonel of the Saxonian troops. This I could not verify as the ranking lists of the saxonian army does not mention him. But he already came to Warsaw as a member of the court, i.e. with a certain career he already had in Dresden which he certainly expanded in Warsaw.

In 1763 the union of Poland and Saxony ended, so he came back.
