The region is composed of Poles and Gorale (Highlanders) who speak their own dialect and wear picturesque costumes. The chief towns of the province are Cracow, Tarnow, and Nowy Sacz. 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. Some were a part of the Polish Clan Debno. The first record was in 1482 when Adam Debno Tymkowicz Czajkowic was the major leader of both the clan and the area.
