About the Boglić surname

Boglić (Boglich,Boghlich) family is from the town of Hvar, island of Hvar (Lesina in Italian), Croatia.

They originated from the village of Vrbanj on the same island and were at first farmers and craftsmen, but soon entered military service and then followed barristers' careers. That gradually acquired them a considerable amount of landed property, which increased in the late 18th century when a prominent member married a noblewoman of the Jakša family.

With family ties to the old patrician houses of Ivanić, Fazanić, Hektorović, Bartučević. In the 19th century Boglićs, who in 1798 were given a short-lived communal nobility, took to intellectual professions and/or civil service. Their landed property was lost in the Yugoslav agrarian reforms in 1930's and 1940's; roughly at the same time one branch of the family settled permanently in ltaly, their country of preference for cultural and political reasons. The other branch became extinct in the early 1900's and was inherited by their cousins Božićs, afamily originating from Herzegovina.
