Here is what I was able to find:

Surname Lorbiecki comes from the German name Rolbeck and toponym Rolbecke. This surname is the most popular in Kashubia region. See the distribution map: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Lorbiecki

See the records with lorbiecki people available in Geneteka database: https://geneszukacz.genealodzy.pl/index.php?search_lastname=Lorbiecki&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&bdm=&url1=&w=&lang=eng&op=se

Listen how this surname is pronounced in Polish (click on the “Listen” button): https://translate.google.pl/#view=home&op=translate&sl=en&tl=pl&text=Lorbiecki

Surname Wicki and its feminine version Wicka comes from names beginning with "Wi-" such as Wit, Wincenty, Wiktor. See the distribution map: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Wicki. As you will see it is also a Kashubian surname.
Geneteka database: https://geneszukacz.genealodzy.pl/index.php?search_lastname=Wicka&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&bdm=&url1=&w=&lang=pol&op=se

Surname Quade is not Polish, however still there are some indexed records in Geneteka: https://geneszukacz.genealodzy.pl/index.php?search_lastname=Quade&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&bdm=&url1=&w=&lang=eng&op=se
