1773: Jiří Janeczek Assumes Ownership of the Farm

Jiří Janeczek, as the youngest son, appeared before the seignorial court in 1773 to assume ownership of the farm. His father Melichar died in 1749 according to vital records, meaning the transfer occurred 24 years after his death. Despite not transferring ownership of the farm, the previous entry in the seignorial books indicate payments made on the mortgage until the transfer.

The documents from the  Horažďovice Estate land books record the transfer, family obligations, and obligations to the estate and church. This entry also provides insight into which of Melichar’s siblings, as well as Jiří’s siblings, were living at the time as their account balances are described.

New entry of Jiří Janeček

In the year 1773, 13th January, during the session of land accounts in presence of Vojtěch Lavička, the reeve of Vlkonice, Jiří Janeczek took the stand with his humble speech that he still has no entry about the farm after his deceased father and that he as the bereaved youngest son assumes the ownership of the farm after his deceased father Melichar Janeczek, if the glorious seignorial office doesn’t object.

Therefore this farm with all the rights and all the from way back belonging equipment is assigned and submitted to him and his children and to his descendants and to his heirs for now and for all the future eternal times in the price of one hundred and twenty guldens
