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 Gornji Flajniki. Given the fact that the Flajnik surname is also part of the household name, it is conceivable to believe that this family may have been one of the first Flajnik families in Hrast.
Through the period of our studies, we have found seventeen distinct houses which originally carried the Flajnik surname. This is the fourth of the seventeen houses (in order of house address). The Flajnik surname is only originally found in Hrast and Perudina.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is Jurij Flajnik b. 1770. He married Marija Šutej b. 1776 and had at least 5 children, including:
1A. Ana Flajnik b. 1802, died at the age of 45. At this time, it is unknown if she was ever married or had children.
1B. Katarina Flajnik b. 1807. At this time, it is unknown what happened to her afterwards.
1C. Barbara Flajnik b. 1810, died at the age of 37. At this time, it is unknown if she was ever married or had children.
1D. Matija Flajnik b. 1813, m. ca. 1835 to Barbara Kambič (Kambičevi from Sečje Selo) — they remained at this house.
1E. Nikolaj Flajnik b. 1818, died at the age of 25. At this time, it is unknown if he was ever married or had children.
Matija Flajnik [1D] and his wife Barbara Kambič had 5 children, including:
2A. Katarina Flajnik b. 1836. At this time, it is unknown what happened to her afterwards.
2B. Jurij Flajnik b. 1846, m. 1876 to Ana Juršinič (Perudina 7) — they remained at this house.
2C. Marija Flajnik b. 1849, m. 1873 to Nikolaj Pavlešič (Perudina 15).
2D. Matija Flajnik b. 1855. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
Matija Flajnik [1D] m. aft. 1857 to Barbara Runtič (Kovačji Grad 4). They had no children.
Jurij Flajnik [2B] and his wife Ana Juršinič had 1 child who died in infancy.
At this point, the original Flajnik lineage ended. Jože Kunič (Mala Lahinja 9) and his wife Marija Butala (Mihelja Vas 6) moved in with their family.
Jože Kunič and his wife Marija Butala had 7 children.
