I.4 Hutstein 1509

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) of the dominion Rannariedl. 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 i.e. when it was sold.

In the 1537 Urbar it is known as “Hüetterstain”- or “Huetstain”, a location within the Falkenstein dominion.

This ‘Urbar’ is stored in the Hofkammerarchiv in Vienna, Austria (State Archive 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.
