The present study attempts to collect information about genealogy and career of all probable representatives of the lands of Słupsk and Białogarda by the Łeba river, who acted during the governance of prince Warcisław II of Gdańsk (1266–1269/70). In most of the cases their links with these territories were confirmed. Economic links are especially visible, such as ownership of manors. It could influence the attitudes of this social class before and during the civil war between Warcisław II and his eldest brother – Mściwoj II. This duke in 1269, pursuant to the Act of Choszczno, gave Białogarda land to the Margraves of Brandenburg. Earlier, Warcisław and Mściwoj’s uncle – Racibor had demised this very same land to the Teutonic order. The local knighthood and highest officials, who owned the manors there (like voivod Dobiegniew) could feel immediate danger. They also had one more reason to move against Mściwoj. It’s conceivable that they cooperated in capturing the duke, which began the war. With high probability, for their enemy attitude, they were banished with Warcisław by Mściwoj, and their manors were confiscated.
