Tepavcevic surname started in 1410. Family tree starts with Vuk Crnogorac-Orle ( 1330 ). Vuk had 3 sons, Milija Crnogorac(1348), Pavle Orlovic(1359-1389), and Martin Orlovic( ?-1389). Pavle Orlovic had 4 sons Bjelan( Tepa-1384), Nenoje, Bojko(1385), and Cejo. Bjelan Orlovic was nicknamed Tepa since he stuttered because the Ottamans cut his tongue. Therefore his son took the name Tepavcevic in 1410, his name was either Ivan or Vaso...not sure. The first Tepavcevic lived in Bobotovo Groblje, in the present day Rupublik of Serbia. I am not sure at what clan Tepavcevici belong to. I sure would like to find out. Please help me if you have any info. Thanks, Pavle Tepavcevich
Is there any other Tepavcevici out there?
