Heinrichsdorf (Przysiersk), Kreis Schwetz

Heinrichsdorf (Przysiersk) was likely owned by the Polish Noble Hutten-Czapski family who also owned Bankowo (Bakowo) and Bukowitz (Bukowice). The Hutten-Czapski family was very progressive in that it granted farming privileges on its land. This village dates back to the time of the Teutonic Knights. My interest in this village stems from the presence of the Remus family in the village; click here for the genealogy.

Much earlier there was a church in this village. However, the Swedish Army totally destroyed that church and the village around 1650. Here is a picture of the current Catholic Church:
