Reply with quote

My family surname in Polish is Kęsikowski, I have also found out that is it sometimes spelled Kęskowski which comes from the Prawdzic coat of arms. I never could find out the real origin of our surname, from a village, person or could it come from Kęsikowskiewicz? I know Kęs means small bite in polish.
Thank you.
