Zgórsko Translated from the Słownik Geograficzny (1880-1902)
by Helen C. Bienick

Zgórsko, in the district of Podborze, in the county of Mielec, lies on a stream called Partynia, at the junction where it flows into a stream called Dąbrowa. It is a peculiar village, as it also includes two other “wołki” (small tax free villages) namely, Podkościele, with 14 houses, & Wilcza Wola, with 7 houses. Zgórsko had 10 houses. In total there were 31 houses, with 135 inhabitants (65 men, and 70 women) all Catholics. The local parish church was erected in 1583. A large estate belonging to the Ossolinski nobles of Lwów, covered 779 mr. of land. A second smaller estate covered 129 mr. In the 15th century, the village of Zgórsko near Radomyśl, belonged to the parish church in Mielec, and was the property of the Pacanów (Pac) nobles, whose coat of arms was "Jelita". At that time, there were four large private farmsteads, which paid a "tithe" to the church in the village of Pacanów. (This is noted in the book Liber Beneficiorum, by the author and historian Długosz, volume II, page 423.) In the book “Małopolska,” (Little Poland) by Pawinski, page 208, it is written that in 1578, Zgórsko was the property of Mikołaj (Nicholas) Mielecki, who was then governor of Podolia. There were 40 farm owners, 18 large fields, four garden farmers, and 10 tenant farmers who owned no cattle. Zgórsko belonged to the parish in Mielec. In a census from the 17th century, after the church was built in Zgórsko, the following villages belonged to its parish: Izbiska, Jamy, Podlesie, Piątkowice, Podbórz, Grzybów, Partynię, Schabów, and Pień. At present only the villages of Bliznę and Podborze remain as members. The village of Zgórsko lies on sandy level ground, 185 meters above sea level, at the point where the stream called Partynia flows into the Bren river. On the north, Zgórsko borders Wadowice Górne, on the east Podborze and Podlesie, on the south Partynia, and on the west, Jamy and Izbiska.
