Abstrakt / Abstract

The Kłoda family was a peasant family most likely originating from Końska in Cieszyn Silesia. In the 40s of the 18th century they settled down in Puńców. Jan (1715–1790) and Paweł (1721–1796) as the first of the family purchased the land in the village of Puńców. Thee following article presents 120 biographies of the Kłoda family members, additionally discussing the issue of their ethnic and language membership. The Kłoda family were Polish speaking peasants, and in the second half of the 19th century they were in the zone of the influence of the Polish national movement. The movement was supported, among others, by Andrzej Kłoda (b.1816), the owner of the farm no.50 in Puńców. His grandson, Paweł (1879-1968), belonged to Polish associations. After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, he actively worked for the family village to join the reborn Poland, he was the author of the slogan: “There’s no Poland without Puńców”. The collected material can be used, inter alia, in the study on naming peasants within Cieszyn Silesia, their mobility and property status.
