Neunhuben (also known as Dziewięćwłók, Bahrenhof; now known as Dziewięć Włók); coordinates: 53.441476 N, 18.646517 E [53° 26' N, 18° 38' E]; population in 1905, 99), a village in the Polish district of Schwetz, west of the Vistula River, was in 1659 ff. settled by Dutch colonists who may have been Mennonites. In the course of time they all left this area on account of repeated floods. Then in 1745 the village was bought by a number of Mennonite farmers from the neighboring villages of Montau, Schönsee, and others. In the land leases of Neunhuben the following Mennonite names are found: Kopper, Rosenfeldt, Goerz, Klieuwer, Bartel, and Geddert. The Mennonites of Neunhuben belonged to the Montau congregation.
