Lubicz Family

My Name is Tim Bozyczko. Recently my grandfather told me my family used to belong to the Lubicz clan. This clan is from a part of Poland that is now Lituania. After doing some research, I can not find my family name in the clan. I was just wondering if anyone knows information about this clam, and if the Bozyczko family is part of it.

As far as I know "Lubicz" is sort of famous surname in Poland - I think it belongs to "aristocracy or royal people" clan... I think there's an old movie or TV series on the "Lubicz" family. If not, there must be a book on that.

The Lubicz coat of arms goes back to the Middle Ages, when the army of King Kazimierz had been ambushed by a powerful force of pagan Prussians. A knight named Lubicz (bearing the Pobóg coat of arms) led a troop of his own soldiers against the enemy with such ferocity that he sent them fleeing for safety. In recognition of his splendid service, Kazimierz rewarded him with numerous possessions. He also added another cavalier’s cross to his Pobóg crest, which depicted a standing golden horseshoe topped with a cavalier’s cross on a blue shield, removed the hound from the crest, and renamed the modified coat of arms after the brave knight. This heraldic device is shared by 710 Polish noble families.

Serbs, of noble origin

His father was a Lithuanian-Polish nobleman, but his ancestors were not native to the region. According to family legend, they had emigrated there from the very heart of ethnic Lithuania, on the Baltic peninsula. The Miloszes were refugees in this area too.

Crow -- your penchant for finding a common Serb denominator in everything reminds me of an ancedote which supposedly circulated round the time of World War One. The Nobel Prize committee had announced an essay contest on the subject of the elephant in which different nations competed. The Frenchman wrote an essay entitled 'L'éléphant et ses amours', the German penned a treatise entitled "Die Elephantenphilosophie und ihr Verhältnis zu den Wissenschaftlichen Problemen des Transzendentalismus'. The Englishman wrote: 'The Elephants I have shot', the American submitted an essay titled 'The Elephant and how to make it bigger and better', and the Pole wrote: 'Słoń a sprawa polska'.

Quite a late reply...but I happen to be a descendent of the Lubicz clan as well, and I have seen the name Bozyczko on the list of families included.
