While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either.
This house is the third of ten documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Hrast. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1830.
The Špehar family that originally inhabited this house is an offshoot of the marriage between a Špehar man from Perudina and Katarina Flajnik of Hrast 17.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Jurij Špehar (Mavričin from Perudina) b. 1844. He married Katarina Flajnik b. 1837 in 1870. Together they had 1 child which died in infancy..
With no children to continue the family, Johan Juršinič (Vrtinov) moved in with his wife Katarina Mravinec (Hrast 21).
Johan Juršinič and his wife Katarina Mravinec had 1 child which died in early childhood..
Again, with no children to continue the family, another family moved in to live here. Matija Flajnik (Kaplanov) b. 1838 moved in with Katarina Flajnik (Kovačeva from Perudina) b. 1845. Having had children at Hrast 4, they were already an established family.
Matija Flajnik and his wife Katarina Flajnik had 5 children, including:
1A. Marija Flajnik b. 1872, m. 1896 to Miha Jarnjevič — they lived at Hrast 40.
1B. Matija Flajnik b. 1874, m. 1901 to Katarina Zatovšek (Lukinova from Podklanec) — they remained at this house.
1C. Johan Flajnik b. 1880. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
Matija Flajnik [1B] and his wife Katarina Zatovšek had 1 child which died in early childhood.. At this point, they moved to Hrast 3.
