An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The name is derived from the Polish word "Jastrzab," meaning a "hawk." The name was no doubt created from a nickname, which would have made reference to either the character or the physical appearance of the original bearer of the name.

Jastrzembiec Early Origins



The surname Jastrzembiec was first found in Galicia which lies in southern Poland on the northern slopes of the Carpathians. It was overrun by Monguls in 1223. The region is composed of Polish and Ukrainian natives, the latter being to the east. The Ruthenian nobles adopted the Catholic faith and the Polish tongue. 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. They were Barons Jastrzembiec of Barowski.
