Bielawski History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Bielawski family

The surname Bielawski was first found in Stanislawow, a south eastern province of Poland in the Carpathian area. Mostly populated by Ruthenians (70%) there are only 22% Poles, the rest mostly Jews. There are many resorts in this beautiful province and the chief towns are Stanislawow, Stryj, Kolmyja, Kalusz and Halicz, the latter being famous for a line of Russian princes which became extinct in 1340. There are oilfields in the area, and the province is famous for its horses. The surname became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
