This surname Zadkowski comes from a place name where the original bearer of the name would have resided. The roots of this name are the Polish word "sad," which means "orchard," and the possessive suffix "ow." There are many towns in Poland that have names built from these roots. The bear of the name Zadkowski would have originally been from one of those towns.

Zadkowski Early Origins



The surname Zadkowski was first found in Lemberg (Lwow,) a province of Poland. It is bounded by Lublin, Cracow, Tarnopol and Stanislawow. The main cities are those of Lemberg, Prezymysl, Drohobycz, Rzeszow, Jaraslow, Sambor and Sanock. The town of Lemberg was an important trading post with the east. While Polish represents the majority of its peoples there is also a major Ukrainian representation. 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.
