Herrenhagen (now Pielica, Poland) Source: Wikipedia Commons
Herrenhagen (now known as Pielica; coordinates: 54.0717, 19.0896 [54° 4′ 18″ N, 19° 5′ 22″ E]; population in 1905, 65; in 2012, 40) is located approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) north-east of Malbork (Marienburg), 16.2 km (10 mi.) S of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), 22 km (13 mi.) south-west of Elbląg (Elbing), and 45 km (28 mi) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig).

Until 1772 Herrenhagen was located in what was known as Royal Prussia (also known as Polish Prussia) in the Kingdom of Poland. The First Partition of Poland in 1772 resulted in the creation of a new province in 1773, called West Prussia, in which Herrenhagen was located. Herrenhagen was situated in the district (Kreis) of Marienburg until the establishment of the Free City of Danzig in 1920. The village came under the control of Nazi Germany during World War II until February 1945, when it was occupied by Soviet forces and returned to Poland. In 2012 Herrenhagen (now Pielica) was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Malbork, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The 1776 Prussian census lists one Mennonite family by the name of Andres in Herrenhagen. In 1820 Herrenhagen had 43 inhabitants, of which 17 were Mennonite.

Mennonites who were residents of Herrenhagen were members of the Heubuden Mennonite Church.
