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

Samocice, with Łąka Samocka, was once known as “Samoczyce” in the 15th century. It is a village in the county of Dąbrowa Tarnowska, and lies in a lowland on the right bank of the Wisła (Vistula) River. The parish church is located in Bolesław. In the late 1800s, the district had 172 houses with 974 inhabitants, of whom 942 were Catholics and 32 were Israelites.

The major estate belonging to Count Artur Potocki, covered 20 morgen (mr.) [1] of farms, 22 mr. of meadows, 3 mr. of pastures and 11 mr. of forests. Another large farmstead or folwark covered 747 mr. of farmland, 137 mr. of meadows and 90 mr. of pastureland. According to Siarczynski, as per documents found in the Ossolinski Biblioteka (Library) dating back to 1424, Samocice was granted governing laws and rights, based on a German governing method.

In the 15th century, Samocice was in the parish of Bolesław, and was the property of the royal house of Poland. There were five large fields that were allocated to private farmers.

The rector of the parish in Bolesław was given the proceeds of the Christmas collections. A tenth of their sheaf crop was paid to the Bishop of Kraków, according to the book Liber Beneficiorum, Volume II, pages 433-435, written by the historian Długosz.

Samocice borders Kanna and Bolesław on the east, on the south lie Podlipie and Zalipie, and Gręboszowska Wola on the west.

[1] One morgen equals ~1.4 acres.
