Stadtfelde (Stadtfeld; now known as Cisy; coordinates: 54.0398, 18.9806 [54° 2′ 23″ N, 18° 58′ 50″ E]; population in 1905, 124; in 2012, 260) is located approximately 4 kilometres (2 miles) west of Malbork (Marienburg), 22 km (14 mi.) south-west of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), and 43 km (27 mi.) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig).
Stadtfelde was a colonial village and was probably founded in the 17th century or at the beginning of the 18th century. Until 1772 Stadtfelde 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 Stadtfelde was located. Stadtfelde 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 Stadtfelde (now Cisy) was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Malbork, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.
The 1776 Prussian census lists 15 Mennonite families in Stadtfelde with the following surnames: Barg, Bueckert, Claassen, Dick, Friesen, Reimer, Suckau, Thiessen, Toews, and Willms. In 1820, the village had 86 residents, including 36 Mennonites.
Mennonites who were residents of Stadtfelde were members of the Heubuden Mennonite Church.
