my name is Roy Starbanow. My maternal grandfather was a SCHLUTTIG. I am looking for his ancestors. I assume, the family emigrated from Bohemia about 1630. The oldest known ancestor is SIGISMUND ZLUTICKY, born 1640 in Jöhstadt, Germany. His descendants in Germany are relatively well known; today, there are also families in Croatia and USA.
My research shows that the name ZLUTICKY rises from the nowadays Czech Republic. Maybe from the town Zlutice. I found a lot of people who lived in the period 1340-1780, carrying the name ZLUTICKY (ZLUTIC, von ZLUTITZ, von LUDITZ, VON LUTICZ, SCHLUTITZKY) then it nearly disappeared. There is also an aristocratic ZLUTICKY family, if there is any connection, is an open question.
Other names and places that may serve as a hint is the family name ERITTENA (Sigismund Oswald ZLUTICKY oo Maria Ignutia ERITTENA, abt. 1590) and the place ZLANY (Schlan) near Praque.
If you have any hints, please contact me or leave a message in the forum. www.starbanow.com
