Reply with quote

I wonder what the surname Fryzlewicz means. It seems all the family originated in Nowy Targ ! The name seems to be rare also.

PJVA,

Fryzlewicz or Fryźlewicz (I found this surname in such two variations) is from fryz, “Friesian horse,” or fryza, “ruffled collar,”

In 2002 there were 351 individuals using the surname Fryźlewicz living in Poland. Detailed map of the surname distribution can be found here: http://www.moikrewni.pl/mapa/kompletny/fry%25C5%25BAlewicz.html - indeed the most of them (277) is living in Nowy Targ!

There were only 5 people bearing the surname Fryzlewicz, see the map: http://www.moikrewni.pl/mapa/kompletny/fryzlewicz.html

Aga, thank you. I appreciate the information. The earliest Fryzlewicz ancestor I know of was Adalbert Fryzlewicz born 1743. When did they start using surnames in Poland? I have heard of the actor Jozef Fryzlewicz born 1932 in Nowy Targ, and his nephew Marek Fryzlewicz who was mayor. I wonder if they are related to me?

PJVA,

Read the article about how surnames came into being: http://polishorigins.com/document/surnames

The famous Fryzlewicz from Nowy Targ might be related to you, however it will be difficult to check, because the records younger than 100 years are protected by law and available only to close relatives.[/quote]

Aga, If I knew the father's name of the famous Jozef Fryzlewicz I could check to see if his father is in my tree already. My great grandfather Barlomiej had 12 children, many of them immigrated but some didn't. I have the list of Bartlomiej's brothers and uncles etc all going back. Any way it was just a curiosity.

Thanks for the link !
