In 1550, seven possessed men lived in Rahnisdorf , including a liege judge, four hookers and two gardeners who were directly subordinate to the Lochau office. The town hall bordered with the Annaburger Heide and the villages Buckau and Mahdel .

Rahnisdorf was parish in Buckau as early as the 16th century.

At the request of the chief forestry and game master Johann Günther from Annaburg, Elector Johann Georg II of Saxony handed him the villages of Rahnisdorf and Buckau belonging to the Office of Annaburg with all accessories for 1500 thalers for sale on August 17, 1680. Negotiations for this handover were completed as early as 1679. At that time, the manor in Rahnisdorf was given the status of writing , which was renewed in 1695. At the request of the new owner of the Rahnisdorf manor, Christoph Heinrich von Minckwitz , Elector Friedrich August II of Saxony granted the Rahnisdorf manor the rights of an old manor on October 21, 1734.

Rahnisdorf was the seat of a patrimonial court , which was dissolved in 1849 , to which Buckau also belonged.
