Neudorf was founded in 1715 in the late colonization period. Until 1772 Neudorf was part of 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 Neudorf was located. Neudorf was situated in the district (Kreis) of Elbing 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 Neudorf (now Nowinki) was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Nowy Dwór Gdański, within Nowy Dwór Gdański County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.
The 1776 Prussian census lists 16 Mennonite families with the following surnames: Barckmann, Bickert, Braun, Dick, Ens, Hamm, Loewen, Mierau, Neustaedter, Reimer, Riesen, Thiesen, and Wilhelm. In 1820, Neudorf had 77 residents, including 45 Mennonites.
Mennonites who were residents of Neudorf were members of the Rosenort Mennonite Church.
