Schtotle sounds a bit like Städtle, a diminutive term meaning town (Stadt). Think of the folksong made popular by Elvis Presley "Muss I denn, muss I denn, zum Städtele hinaus, ...." Or think of the website called the Jewish Shtetl Seeker.

Your ancestors might simply have referred to "the city" with this word.

On the other hand, there are at least four places in today's Austria called Stadl (pronounced Shtodle), and there may have been yet more in the much larger territory of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
