Scheikowitz (Schäckowitz, Schaikowitz; Czech, Cajkovice), a village in Moravia, where the Hutterite Brethren had a Bruderhof (not to be confused with the Schäkowitz, north of Auspitz), founded in 1545, at that time owned by Závis von Wickow. Scheikowitz was northeast of Kostel. In 1558 the Brethren were expelled by Lord Säbisch, Závis of Wickow; they settled at Paraditz. On 20 September 1619, the Bruderhof was burned down by soldiers.
