While every house in Slovenia has a civic address, many houses also carry a household name. These names are how other people typically referred to that family. This house carries the name of Dejanski. This name suggests that this may be an offshoot from one of the original Dejani houses.
Through the period of our studies, we have found three distinct houses which originally carried the Dejan surname in Dejani. This is the third of the three houses (in order of house address). The Dejan surname is only originally found in Dejani.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for the wife of the patriarch Barbara Grdun. Together, they had at least 2 children, including:
1A. Jurij Dejan b.1823, m. 1843 to Barbara Dejan (Velika Dejanova) — they remained at this house.
