In 1509 the name Hutstein was first mentioned as ‘Huestain’ or ‘Am Huestain’ (=at the Huestain) in an old tax and a cadastre document (Urbar). An ‘Urbar’ is a description or list of all properties of a certain dominion or county. Often it was set up when a county changed its landlord (similar to a cadastre document).
In the 1537 Urbar it is known as “Hüetterstain”- or “Huetstain”, a location within the county of Falkenstein.
This ‘Urbar’ is stored in the Hofkammer-Archiv in Vienna, Austria (State Archiv Vienna). Hutstein is mentioned on pages ff. 23, 37.
In 1570 it is again part of a new ‘Urbar’ of dominion Falkenstein pages ff. 9, 52. 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.
