VI. Holzstein and Hutstein

Hutstein Martin *1748 in Allersberg

Another issue is Hutstein Simon, son of Hutstein Martin in Preith, grandson of Holzstein Adam from Amberg. 

This family does not belong to any ‘Hutstein’-line but to ‘Holzstein’ instead. Sometimes these family names became mixed up. Obviously this happened here, too.

While Adam and most of his children were recorded as Holzstein resp.  Holzsteiner, only Martin became a “Hutstein” (Huetstein) within official church records. And he and his descendants kept this family name, founding another Hutstein family line during the 19th century until the family name got extinct at the beginning of the 20th century.
