The unidentified ancestor of the kindred received the estate of Monoszló (today Podravska Moslavina, Croatia) in Križevci County in Slavonia from Béla III of Hungary. There he was also granted the right of marturina, a type of tax in Slavonia which was collected in the then highly valued marten skins. As János Karácsonyi wrote, he had four children because Monoszló was divided into four parts in 1231 according to a property contract.[1] One of them was Macarius, who served as ispán (head) of Szolnok County from 1192 to 1193.[2] By 1196, he owned Szond, Bács County (today Sonta, Serbia) and married a daughter of Peter Győr from the Szenterzsébet branch.
