Donation of Count Péter Széchi to Ferenc Tulok


Rimaszécsi gr. Széchi Péter

1684. 09. 26.


Péter Széchi, the last male member of the famous Széchi family in Lendava and Rimaszécs, died in October 1684 in Vienna. In order to paying off his debts, and in return for the loyalty of his servants, his last orders practically distributed a substantial portion of his wealth. Antal Ferenc Tulok became one of the main beneficiaries of these donations. He was already very high-ranking, and in 1689 he was awarded the title of Baron. The significance of this document is given by the fact that it provides credible information about the population of several villages belonging to the Murska Sobota estate (Tessanóc, Mladetinc, Marác, etc., in total 32 households).
