The original surname at the Stegneti household was Jaketič. Ive Čadonič (Krčmarov) married into this household in 1832 and started the Čadonič lineage that remained. He died, however, ca. 1850, and his wife remarried Mate Stegne from Golek 3, resulting in the name Stegneti. The Stegneti household at Zilje 3 became known as the Gornji Stegneti when the household was split between two brothers, creating the Dolnji Stegneti at the new Zilje 47.
The oldest record we have found to date for an ancestor of the Gornji Stegneti family is for Jure Jaketič. He married Kata Šimec. Together, they had at least 2 children:
1A. Ane Jaketič b. 1804, m. 1830 to Jure Miroslavič from Sela
