The Privilege - introduction

The Privilege

As mentioned in the previous page Franciszek Stadnitski the count of Nawojowa have honored Wolf hochhauser and his sons Jozefa and Moses or Samuel with a Privilege to live Build Houses and to do Bussiness in Labowa.

 

We have found the privilege in the State Archives of Wawel (ANS 36) Kraków poland, this files was belonging to Adam Stadnicki the grandson of Franciszek Stadnitski the Graf of Nawojowa and the surrounding Villages, Adam Stadnicki sold his Archives to the Polish government and they have stored it in the Wawel Archive.

 

the first Version (page 1) is the same as of the second version (page 3), and the third version (page 7) ia a longer more detailed contract.

 

my researcher have found another copy of this privilege in the Grodzka Archive of Krakow, in the file called: C.K. Komisja Ministerialna dla zniesienia ciężarów gruntowych w Krakowie. to understand the purpose of this archive and the significance of this Official copy we have to write a bit about history...

 

Since 1793 (תקנ"ג) Poland was not an independent nation, was occupied by: Russia, Austria and Prussia. Poland did not exist on the map and was divided between those three countries. Poland regained independence in 1918 (תרע"ח). By 1918, Galicia, was controlled by the Austrian empire. In 1848 (תר"ח) revolution broke out in Europe (Spring of Nations). In Galicia also. This revolution was a series of democratic revolts against the monarchies in Europe. It is not my goal to explain this but… Spring of Nations in 1848 prompted the government in Vienna to reform enfranchisement. In Galicia, all the peasants received land which cultivated. But not only, this reform was wider. In 1850, the new office was established. This committee (office) prepared many documents. It is c.K Komisja Ministerialna dla zniesienia ciezarow gruntowych w Krakowie.

 

there under the city of Nawojowa there is a file for the properties of the jewish people of Labowa, they have to come the the new office and claim there proprerties, There are documents signed by Wolf Hochhauser (a grandson of the first Wolf Hochhauser...), Yeshaye Hochhauser, Leie Hochhauser and other people of the community. there are tables shows names of particular person and their property etc. there we find this copy of the Privilege, it look to be that it was a repetition/renewal of the privileges conferred.

 

this copy have been made on November 22, 1855. it is the same text as of the third version but there is a few differences.

 

the text and the several versions

the privilege of the Wawel Archive are not the final text and did not have any signature as an original Document, there are many mistakes, deleted sentences. Of course this document was the basis for writing a formal document. (and the original was probably kept by the Family or the community leaders), but the official copy of year. 

 

differences

in the first and second Version the privilege was given for Wolf Hauhauser and his sons Yosef Hauhauser and Samuel Hauhauser. the same is mentioned in the official copy of year 1855, only there the family name is written as we used to write it today HOCHHAUSER (i will comment on this changes on my writing about the Hochhauser family name in general), but in the third version they write Wolf, and his sons Yosef and Moses Neuhauser, it is clearly a mistake done by the scriber / copyist, and it comes probably from that in Galicia they used often to write in several languages Polish ukraine and German, and in ukraine the "H" is written with the symbol of a "N".

 

about the other differences we will comment at the translation at there place.
