Based on family records, we know that the founder of the Ványi family in Rápolt were Sándor Ványi (1834-12-08, Porcsalma, parents Gáspár Ványi and Éva Tomori) and his wife, Bobrála Veres. The above mentioned Károly's parents were also Sándor and Borbála, so we can suppose that he was their son.

This gives us the following tree:

Ványi Gáspár
Tomori Éva
Ványi Sándor
Veres Borbála
Ványi N.
