The Zając family was one of the most important peasant families settled in the village of Ogrodzona near Cieszyn. The article presents the fate of the family from Ogrodzona from Jerzy, the progenitor of the family and a blacksmith, who in 1614 acquired land in the village, until the late nineteenth and the early twentieth century. Members of this family include among others Andrzej (1818–1885), a physician in Cieszyn and social activist, Jerzy (1826–1896), a local councilor and social activist, and Jan (1865–1943), a mayor of the village of Ogrodzona and Polish national and social activist, who in 1928 was a candidate in election to the Senate. Te collected materials can form the basis for the analysis of the naming tradition of peasant families from Cieszyn Silesia, their religious choices in the era of the Counter-Reformation, marital policy of peasant elites and political choices in second half of the nineteenth and the early twentieth century.
