The Walhorn bank in Limburg
Not only Hauset, but almost all places in the southern part of the County of Limburg were administered by one of the five high banks. One of the high banks was Walhorn, the others Baelen, Herve, Montzen and Sprimont. Walhorn emerged from the royal court "Harna", which was founded around 850. It is mentioned for the first time in 888 in a bull by Emperor Lothar II, a grandson of Charlemagne. In 1072 Henry IV from the Salier dynasty donated the royal court to the Marienstift Aachen-Burtscheid. The Marienstift now had feudal lordship over the area of Bank Walhorn in the county of Limburg. The extent to which Hauset already wholly or partially belonged to Bank Walhorn at that time has not yet been fully clarified. Historians have at least different opinions on this. (hauset.info)
