Rosenort (now Suchowo, Poland; coordinates: 54.194146, 19.185462 [54° 11′ 37″ N, 19° 11′ 8″ E]; population in 1905, 229), is located approximately 5 kilometres (3 miles) south-east of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), 13 km. (8 mi.) north-west of Elbląg (Elbing), 20 km (12 mi.) north-east of Malbork (Marienburg), and 41 km (25 mi.) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig). It was situated to the west of Blumenort and Lakendorf, to the north of Krebsfelde, and directly south of Fürstenauerweide (today known as Różewo).

Rosenort originated south and east of the town of Tiegenhof through the immigration of Dutch Mennonites, to whom the banking firm of Hans Simon and Steffen Loysen in 1562 granted land near Danzig to be made arable. Until 1772 Rosenort 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 Rosenort was located. Rosenort 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 Rosenort (now Suchowo) was a settlement in the administrative district of Gmina Nowy Dwór Gdański, within Nowy Dwór Gdański County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The 1776 Prussian census lists 12 Mennonite families in Rosenort with the following surnames: Bestvader, Claasen, Ens, Goetz, Hilbrandt, Jantzen, Martens, Neyfeldt, Penner, Reimer, and Wiens. In 1820 Rosenort had 80 inhabitants, of which 52 were Mennonite.

Mennonites who were residents of Rosenort were members of the Rosenort Mennonite Church.
