The work deals with several estates and set- tlements grouped about the village of Čvrstec east from Križevci. The data on these places appeared relatively late. The first to be described is Čvrstec, mentioned with its church in 1334 and as an es- tate since 1351. Owing to its owner it had early links with Koruška near Križevci. Names Čvrstec and Chwerztechfew have often been mixed and equalized, which is shown by examples. The par- ish and its priests were mentioned a few times in mediaeval documents. The Church of St Peter still
displays fragments characteristic of the 16th cen- tury architecture which certainly formed part of a citadel built by the local gentry at the beginning of the 16th century. Nothing has been found so far about the citadel, but numerous toponyms lead to such conclusions.
The property of Osuđevo can be traced from the mid 14th century. Its owners held some of im- portant topographic items: road Dubrava-Koprivni- ca, stream Osuđevo etc. There is no evidence of a citadel. Further on the work states several minor settlements mentioned since the 15th century. Some of them have preserved their ancient names to the present day (Ruševec, Većeslavec, Raščani), some have given names to different parts of places (Brestovica, Gunjak), of others the location and owners are only known (Šumečec, Vrhovljan). The text closes with a list of ten villages rarely mentioned but once existing in the area.
