Hochstein and Huthstein

It happened several times in history that Hochstein and Hutstein was incorrectly swapped.

Johann Hochstein in Wermelskirchen was written as Huthstein, likely because known Ludwig Conrad Hutsteiner, a bailiff, lived there, too.

One of Johann Hochstein’s children, Wilhelmina, was recorded as Wilhelmina Huthstein in state records of Wermelskirchen.
