Your German town of Dobrenz is called Dobr^enec in Czech.
Located 57 miles (88 km) WNW of Praha in Czech Republic at geo
coordinates 50 N 15 Lat and 13 E 15 Long.
Other close village are Konice, Mas^tov, and Ne^mc^any.
Each has its own church.
Or the town located near Jihlava (Cz) Iglau (G) called Dobronin (Cz)
and Dobrenz in German and located 68 miles SE of Praha geo
coordinates 49 N 29 Lat and 15 E 40 Long.
You will have to decide which town you are seeking ?
In Moravia or Czech-Bohemia ?
Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a kingdom
(10th century-1918) and part of the Österreichisch-ungarische
Monarchie, or in English, Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
It was an Austrian Kronland (province)
Mähren => Maehren => Marin => Moravia.
Mähren was an Austrian Crownland located East of Böhmen (Bohemia).
Its capital was Brünn (Brno).
Mähren had been a separate crownland until 1849 when it became a part
of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Österreichisch-Schleisen
