Did a lot of Hungarians moved to Poland during the partitions (1900?)

I'm Polish but I was told by my grandfather, that my great great grandfather came from Hungary to Poland. I assume this happened during the partitions, approximately 1900. Is there any history to this? I am wondering whether there is a wider historical context to this or if that was just a random move by one person at that time? Did alot of Hungarians move like that, and if so, why? Unfortunately my grandfather is no longer alive, so I cannot ask him myself.

Thanks

I think that their destination wasn't Poland at that time - it was Austria. From 1867 to 1918 existed the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austria-Hungary

It might be the time when Hungarian people, in pursuit for better life, were migrated to Austrian areas which lay partly on previous Polish territory.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partitions_of_Poland

Then the lands becomed Polish again and the people who remained there assimilated into Poland..
