URSIĆ U BRELIMA

Prezime spada u skupinu prezimena koje je proizvela okolina ističući osobi određene odlike, u ovom slučaju isticane su osobine karakteristične za biokovske gorštake. Preci Ursića isticali su se po visini, snazi, izdržljivosti, što je okolicu asociralo u pozitivnom smislu na medvjeda. Imena Urso, Ure, Uro, Urica, Urko proizlaze od latinskog ursus - medvjed. Ovo staro i često romansko ime (Ursus) je osnova mnogim prezimenima MEDO, MEDVJED, MEDAK i sl., od kojeg su od starine nastali različiti oblici današnjih prezimena, kao na primjer: URAVA, URSIĆ(Urso), URIĆ(Ure) - mlađe su tvorbe i sva se zbivaju na primorju u arealu dugovjekovne simbioze romanskog i hrvatskog življa. Mnoge živuće Ursiće i danas krase odlike kao što su visina, snaga i izdržljivost, što su naslijedili od svojih predaka.
Oko 1830. godine Ursići su živjeli i imali građevinske objekte u trima zaseocima:
 a) GORNJA MALA
 b) ZAVETERJE
 c) DONJE SELO - predio zvan Dunaj
U spomenutom periodu Ursići nisu imali građevinske objekte u gornjem Prosiku, a današnji objekti koji su vlasništvo Ursića bili su vlasništvo Raosa, Vučkovića i Vojvodića (Vojvoda). Objekte i zemljište su najvjerojatnije Ursići naslijedili od Vojvodića i Vučkovića.
Prema popisu stanovnika koji je sačinio Jurju Celergi 27. lipnja 1686., u Brelima je živjelo sedam obitelji Ursića.

U Elaboratu Austrijskog katastarskog premjera od 1830. godine Ursiće susrećemo kao vlasnike građevinskih objekata i zemljišta u trima zaseocima, a objekti su bili upisani na imena:
 a) Dunaj - Mate, Josipa, Ivana, Petra, Jure pok. Mije, Tadije, Marka, Mate pok. Nikole, jedan objekt je upisan na imena Mije Raosa i Mate Ursića a jedan objekt je kupio ili naslijedio Jure Ursić od Mate Ivanca,
 b) Gornja Mala - Mate, Mije, Ivana, Petra, Petra pok. Mate, Antonije udova Petra, Ilije, Josipa, Filipa, Mate pok. Pavla, Tadije pok. Iva, Tadije pok. Nikole.
 c) Zaveterje - Mate, Mate pok. Pavla, Josipa, Tadije, Nikole, Petra, Ilije,
Mate pok. Tadije. Jedan objekt je upisan kao zajednički Ivana Medića, Stjepana Raosa i Mije Ursića.
Ursići su najvjerojatnije najprije živjeli u Zaveterju u blizini granice između Osmanlijskog carstva i Venecije te su gradili staje i kuće na sigurnijim mjestima kako bi se zaštitili od Turaka pljačkaša, gdje su pojedinci zasnovali nove obitelji.
Za vrijeme popisa stanovništva iz 1948. godine u Republici Hrvatskoj Ursići su živjeli u dvadeset mjesta. U Brelima je živjelo 135 Ursića u 29 obitelji, a breljanska skupina Ursića bila je najveća.

URSIĆ IN BRELA

Last name belongs to a group of names produced by the environment emphasizing certain characteristics of a person, in this case emphasized the characteristic features of Biokovo mountaineers. Ancestors of the Ursić were known for their height, strength, endurance, and in the countryside this reminded people in a positive sense to a bear. Names Urso, Ure, Uro, Urica, Urko derived from the Latin ursus - bear. This old and often Roman name (Ursus) is the basis of many surnames Medo, Medvjed, Medak, etc., from which they originated from the ancient names of today’s various forms, for example, URAVA, URSIĆ (Urso), Uric (Ure) - under the formation of all occurring at the coast for many centuries a symbiosis of the Roman and Croatian population. Many living Ursić and today boasts features such as height, strength and stamina, which they inherited from their ancestors. Around 1830 the Ursić lived and had buildings in three villages: a) GORNJA MALA b) ZAVETERJE c) DONJE SELO - an area called Dunaj in that period Ursić did not have buildings in the top Prosik, and today’s facilities that are owned by Ursić were Property Raosa, Vucković and Vojvodić (Duke). Buildings and land were most likely inherited from Vojvodić Ursić and Vucković. According to the census, which was compiled by George Celergi June 27, 1686, in Brela lived seven families Ursić. Two families, Ivan Ursić with 12 members and Pavla Ursić with 6 members are on the list among the 476 Vinjančanima.
