back to lords of Malachowo, surnamed 'Malachowski' de Malachowo Malachowski,
lords in Malachowo, Co. Gniezno,
of the clan Swieboda-Gryf

Prof. Dworzaczek says:
"Malachowski of clan Gryf
The Malachowski of clan Gryf took their name from Malachowo Szemborowice in Co. Gniezno. The by-names they used were "Koziel", "Kozielek" and "Zygmuncik". Later they were also heirs in Malachowo Zlych Miesic and in Malachowo Wierzbiecic. Their genealogy, which can be reconstructed in an unbroken line only since the end of the XV-th century might suggest that it is only then that they settled in Malachowo, but already in 1424 we can see Mikolaj Kozielek (Caszyelek) de Malachowo, who was sued by Siechna de Czeluscin (G. 3 k. 233).

a knight bearing clan Swieboda-Gryf arms but, unfortunately, mirror-reversed.
A combat scene is perhaps the best to show how inaccurate such an error is.

one of the very few good Polish heraldic artists on the internet.

the Swieboda de Malachowo Malachowski listed among clan Swieboda-Gryf families,
the historical introduction is not entirely correct but the images are quite good.

de Malachowo Malachowski family, of clan Gryf, mentioned in the classical Niesiecki's Peerage
(the note is longer than shown here, but still very short, and it deals mostly with a line near
Krakow. Apparently Niesiecki's South-Eastern perspective missed the lines in other regions).

general Kazimierz de Malachowo Malachowski, clan Swieboda-Gryf
- the most famous member of the famiily,
chief commander of the Polish Army for a while in 1831.

Two 1762 uniforms in the "Husaren Regiment von Malachowski" -

The Germans mistranslated "de Malachowo Malachowski, clan Gryf"
as "Malachow von Malachowski" or even "von Malachowski und Griffa"!.

"Trompeter vom Regiment v. Malachowski (Nr. 7), Reste im Husaren-Regiment Nr. 4,
in der Reichswehr: 1. Eskadron Reiter-Regiment Nr. 11"

Pawel-Jozef Malachowski mentioned in Oeuvres de Frederic le Grand,
"de Malachowo Malachowski" is here wrongly shortened to "de Malachowski".

Unfortunately for the German branch of the family, having started with providing
Prussia with a long line of professional high-ranking military officers ended with
blemishing the de Malachowo Malachowski name with producing a Nazi officer.

Prof. Dworzaczek also says:
"One line of the Gryfita Malachowski moved in the XVIII century to Malopolska and later, living in Russian [Moscovian] and Halician Podolia came to significant wealth."
