History

Drążdżewo Nowe (New Drążdżewo or New Brushwood) was a privately owned settlement already existing in 1386. However, the site already had previously contained a number of small villages, but only Drążdżewo Nowe (New Drążdżewo) now survives. The word drążdżewo is derived from the word drzążdż (Proto-Slavonic dręzga), meaning brushwood. The settlement, at times, has also been known as Draszewo and, later, also as Drasdzew, Drzanzewo, and Drzązewo. A post-World War I census, taken in 1921, recorded 25 homes and 145 inhabitants living in the village. The village is incorporated under the municipality of Gmina Jednorożec, which was established in 1867.
