Rumsko is located in Western Pomerania , in the northeast of the Powiat Słupski ( Stolp district ) on a low hill.

Place name

The place name occurs in different forms: Ramsko, Rumpske (1430), Rumptzke (1469) and Rumbptze (1484), Rumske (1784), until 1945 Rumbske, since then Rumsko.


An old weir system, once called the "Schwedenschanze", dates back to prehistoric times. It was in a loop and was secured by a wall five meters high.

Together with Rowen (now Polish: Równo ) and Zedlin ( Siodłonie ), Rumbske was an old Stojentine fief. In 1469 the brothers Klaus and Lorenz Stojentin were enfeoffed with Rumbske. The family expanded widely, which resulted in numerous inheritance disputes. So it came about that the estate went bankrupt between 1583 and 1688.

After that Rumbske came into the possession of the Podewils family , from 1731 to the Bieberstein family and 1773 to the Kleist family . Around the year 1784 there were in Rumbske a Vorwerk , eight pawns, two Kossäten , a tavern and in the village Glowitz a forge and a schoolmaster and a total of 16 households.

From 1803 Rumbske was the ancestral property of the Krockow-Ossecken family . The two brothers Ernst August and Ernst Wilhelm von Krockow acquired the Rumbsker estates in the Stolp district and sold the Ossecken ( Osieki Lęborskie ) property in the Lauenburg i. Pom. In 1823 the Rumbske, Rowen and Zedlin estates belonged to Otto von Krockow, who had the manor house built in Rumbske from 1847 to 1848.

Other owners were Wilhelm von Krockow and Otto Christoph, who was raised to the rank of count, with von der Wickerau's name and coat of arms. Otto Christoph died in 1928. Two of his sons died in the war in 1939 and 1941. The only male descendant Christian von der Wickerau was Count von Krockow.

In 1938 the manor Rumbske was 580 hectares, there were also 10 farms of up to 20 hectares and a farm of up to 100 hectares.

Until 1945 Rumbske belonged to the district of Stolp in the administrative district of Köslin in the province of Pomerania . The community area covered 769 hectares. Rumbske was an official and civil registry district, belonged to the Gendarmerie Glowitz and to the district court area of ​​Stolp. In 1939 there were 269 inhabitants in 68 households. The last German mayor was August Kuschel.

Towards the end of the Second World War , Rumbske was occupied by the Red Army on March 9, 1945 . On March 14th, on the orders of an officer, a Soviet detachment set fire to the lock. As a result of the war, the place became part of Poland. The German residents were expropriated and finally expelled at the end of March .

Later 139 villagers displaced from Rumbske in the Federal Republic of Germany and 67 in the GDR were identified.

The village is now a part of the rural community Główczyce in the Pomorskie after 1,975 to 1,998 of Slupsk province was attached.


Until 1945 Rumbske belonged to the parish of Glowitz , which together with the Giesebitz branch formed the parish of Glowitz. Thus the place belonged to the church district Stolp-Altstadt of the church province Pomerania of the Evangelical Church of the Old Prussian Union . Count von Krockow was involved in the church patronage with three votes (for the goods Rumbske, Rowen and Zedlin) with a total of 12 votes .

For today's Rumsko, Główczyce has remained the church site. The responsible parish, however, is Słupsk, which belongs to the diocese of Pomerania-Greater Poland of the Evangelical-Augsburg (Lutheran) Church in Poland .


Rumbske was also a school location for Rowen until 1945. In 1932 the school had three levels. Two teachers taught 79 school children in three classes.
