In the 1879 status animarum, the households at Zilje 10 and Zilje 11 were recorded as the Gornji and Dolnji Vranešiči, reflecting the surname of both families. There is a record of a marriage in 1774 between a Helena Muretič from Zilje and a Matija Vranešič from Podklanec, and while we cannot yet link this marriage to the lineages of families with the Vranešič surname, it would explain the end of the Muretič surname in Zilje. Most living Ziljani regard the household at Zilje 10 as the Matki.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Matija Vranešič (Dolnji Vranešičev). He married Marija Malešič (Čaporova from Podklanec). Together they had 10 children, including:
1B. Marija Vranešič b. 1867, m. 1886 to Johan Jaketič (Mikulašev).

1D. Ana Vranešič b. 1873, m. 1896 to Marko Brožič (Gornji Brožičev).
1E. Franc Vranešič b. 1876, m. 1904 to Barbara Starešičic (Špeličeva) — they remained at this house.
