I found a Frigan who is not mine!

In Zagreb there is a possibility of viewing old courtyards of noble families that lived there in the past. Among these courtyards I visited the Frigan family home and found that Vjekoslav Alojz Frigan used to live there. He was the mayor of Zagreb from 1861. to 1867. Although we have the same surname, he was an aristocrat, and my ancestors were mere peasants! As I work as a geneologist, it intrigued me, so I looked him up in the birth records of the parish Velika. Alojz  was born on Jun 22, 1801 and had a twin brother whose fate is unknown.
