I am not certain of the meaning of the whole phrase, particularly since there is no German "Lieutenant" as far as I know. (If this refers to a military rank, it would be "Leutnant").  My translation is "General tenant of the crown (or municipal) land in Grünberg".

    I am confused regarding the occupation (below) of a member of the Marsch family in Grünberg, Niederschlesien in 1843.  I would be grateful for any translation or explanation forthcoming.  The information was obtained from the Grünberg Wochenblatter of that time.
'General-Pächter der Grünberg'schen Kämmerei-Güter Lieutenant'

Thank you, 
John Marsch
