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. In the case of some smaller settlements such as Ogulin and Drežnik, household names were never widely adopted as there was no need to differentiate families from each other. In the case of Drežnik, there is very limited repetition of surnames leading to the use of surnames as the “household name”.
This house is the second of 2 documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Drežnik. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1820.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Jurij Lesica b. 1793. He married Katarina Muhič (Muhičeva) b. 1813. Together, they had at least 1 child, including:
1A. Katarina Lesica b. 1845, had 1 illegitimate child — she remained at this house.
Before marrying Jurij Lesica, Katarina Muhič had 1 child:
1B. Jurij Muhič b. 1836, m. 1864 to Marija Frankovič (Matačeva from Nova Lipa) — they remained at this house.
Katarina Lesica [1A] had 1 illegitimate children which died in infancy.
Jurij Muhič [1B] and his wife Marija Frankovič had 3 children which died in infancy or early childhood..
