Konarzyny – communal village in the district Chojnice. In 1275 a nobleman named Stanoch Malowy lived here. He belonged to the team of the prince, and his son Miroslaw in Sapolno received in 1326 from the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order a document certifying the right to the land that his ancestors had for centuries. It was a mighty dynasty of the Konarski family, from which is derived the name Konarzyny. Stanoch Malowy and Myslibous Malowy de Choynicz designated, along with Castellan in Szczytno, the boundaries of the Augustinian goods. The document, which marked the boundaries of monastic settlement called the settlement of Myslibous Konarin. In subsequent centuries the name has undergone many changes, and so in the founding document the name Cunerzin was mentioned followed by the name Konarzyno . The name comes from the equerries who guarded the royal stables. In the years 1772-1920 Konarzyny were under Prussian rule; in 1920 the village was back in the Polish state as a border town.
