The knights of Bocksberg were noble free in the bishopric Augsburg . When this family died out, the Marschalken von Bocksberg appeared as servants of the bishopric. In 1379 the Rehm patrician family from Augsburg acquired the rule. In 1462 Andreas Rieter von Kornburg married into the family and in 1542 the rule went to the Lords of Stetten . In 1613, Hans Friedrich Schertlin von Burtenbach bought the manor and in the same year sold it together with Emersacker and Laugna to Marquardt and Max Philipp Fugger . In 1635 the castle was destroyed in the Thirty Years War and no longer rebuilt. The management of the estate was taken over by the Fugger Family Foundation, which moved its administrative headquarters to the castle in Laugna.
