Maciej Ziemierski


The objective of the present article is to depict the fortunes of the Smołukowski family situated directly at the backstage of Cracow’s establishment from the turn of the 17th and 18th century. It shows the figures of Franciszek Smołukowski (1647–1729), Cracow’s municipal secretary and iron merchant, his wife, Annnée Gloss (around 1670–1735) and their son, Father Jan Smołukowski (around 1702–1739), canon of St. Ann’s Collegiate Church in Cracow. On the basis of their last wills and other materials the family connections have been established, especially those of Ann Smołukowska née Gloss. The Gloss family was related to the representatives of Cracow’s top establishment (the Hallers, the Bartschs) as well as to the families of different religious beliefs which settled in Cracow (inter alia the Gessing family which came from Gdańsk).
