Morzewo Translated from the Słownik Geograficzny (1880-1902)
by Helen Bienick

Morzewo, a village approximately three kilometers north of the Noteć River, was located in the county of Chodziez. There were 77 houses with 705 inhabitants, of whom 5 were Evangelicals, 693 were Roman Catholics, and 7 were Jews, 166 people were illiterate. The post office was located in the village of Kaczory, the railroad station and telegraph office were in Miasteczko, eight kilometers distant, and the main road was eight kilometers away. According to the tax records found in Nakło for 1578, Morzewo belonged to the county of Nakło, and had 24 fields, which were privately owned. Morzewo was once a member of the parish church in Miasteczko, as per the historian Pawinski in his writings on “Wielkopolska” (Great Poland), found in Volume #1, page 171. As of 1873, Morzewo built its own church, and the parish belongs to the Deanery of Nakło. The parish numbered 1700 souls, at that time.
