The Hellenbach von Paczolay family originated in Slovakia where it was first recorded at the beginning of the seventeenth century under the name od Čeh (Chech, Tschech). The first of the family to be known by name was Jeremija who lived in the mining town of Kremnica. The arms of the Hellenbach family still bear a mining symbol. Jeremija's son, Johann Gottfried, as court physician to Emperor Leopold I, was made a baron in 1686 with a change of name to Hellenbach. He became a confidential imperial Councellor and gained great estates. The Hellenbach family first appeared in Croatian history in the time of Vilim born on the family estate of Paczolay in Hungary. In 1825 he married the daughter of one of the Slavonian Adamović-Čepinski nobility, and as dowry his wife brought him the Sveta Helena estate, near Zelina, once owned by Count Janković Daruvarski. The Sveta Helena manor today no longer exists. The Hellenbachs came into the Bistrica region when Vilim's son, Lazar, married Klotilda Jelačić, whose family owned Marija Bistrica. Lazar Hellenbach sold the family estates in Hungary and Slovakia and moved to Marija Bistrica. Lazar, who died in 1887, was the most distinguished member of the family. As a philosopher, writer and politician his house was a centre of cultural life and art. He was a follower of Schopenhauer, and in the political sense a moderate unionist. 1861-1868 he took part in the work of the Croatian Sabor. The last male member of the Hellenbach family was Zdenko Hellenbach, a captain in the merchant marine, he died in 1979. His granddaughter with her family lives in the manor today.
