Early Origins of the Jastzrabek family

The surname Jastzrabek 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 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.
