NECPALSKOVCI A JUSTOVCI. PREVZATIE TURČIANSKYCH MAJETKOV V 15. STOROČÍ
The Necpaly family and the Justs. Take-over of Turiec estates in the 15th century
Languages of publication
The Necpaly family ancestors had acquired their first possession in the County of Turiec (village of Necpaly) in 1287. However, their biggest property acquisition was connected with Ladislav of Necpaly. This leading person of the family in the 15th century had received possession of Žabokreky, Jahodníky, Horné Vrútky and Blatnica castle estates in the form of deposit and donations. After the extinction of the family male line the ownership relations in its Turiec estates became very complicated. Blatnica and Necpaly estates originally formed a single property entity until the middle of the 15th century. The financial problems of Blažej of Necpaly (nephew of Ladislav) after a tragic event in the family when his closest relatives ended up in Turkish captivity and the subsequent extinction of this family in the male line were the causes of the fact that at the end of the Middle Ages Blatnica dominion was divided between several owners: the Korom family, the Justs, the Záblatský, the Balaša or the Zápoľský and the Erdődy families. As for the inheritance of the Necpaly family, the villages of Necpaly, Žabokreky and Horné Vrútky in Turiec County remained mostly in the hands of the Justs who lived there and used the name of the village of Necpaly as their family name, but smaller portions passed to the Komorovský and Záblatský families.
