Both Hašek and Vrtiška families lived there in that time area. And the surname change was normal, in earlier times people often changed their surnames when they moved into an another house - the previous owner or lodger´s surname became their new one. There was a law in 1780 that surnames should be hereditary and stay unalterable, but it seems that laws just didn´t apply in that area. :-)

Good luck with finding what you need, sometimes it´s a real horror. People with three or four different surnames are not that uncommon.
