My father was born in Barcs in Hungary in around the 30's with this surname - it's not common in Hungary. You got the stirrup bit right, but I was told it is closer to stirrup-master. I live in the UK, my father and grandmother have been dead a while. There was another family around the Drava area with our surname - related to us, but I can't remember the village. I am guessing with this surname we are related somehow (small world!) I have a number of very old photos from around the turn of the last century showing family members - no idea now who they are. Please feel free to contact me - I'm on facebook and could post the pictures for you to have a look at. Any info from you side would be very interestign, how did you trace so far back?
