In 1509 the name Hutstein was first mentioned as ‘Am Huestain’ (=at the Huestain) in an old tax document.
In 1537 it is known as “Hüetter”- or “Huetstain”, a location within the county of Falkenstein, stated in a record called ‘Urbar’ describing this dominion. An ‘Urbar’ is a description or list of all properties of a certain dominion or county often set up when a county changed its landlord.
This ‘Urbar’ is stored in the Hofkammer-Archiv in Vienna, Austria. Hutstein is mentioned on page f. 23, 37.
In 1570 it is again part of a new ‘Urbar’ of county of Falkenstein page f. 9, 52. Originally Hutstein was called Huet- or Huettenstain there.
Huetstain was also mentioned in 1581 in an ‘Urbar’ of the neighbouring county of Rannariedl, which was owned by Falkensteiner counts, too.
