Gross Mausdorf (now Myszewo, Poland) Source: Wikipedia Commons Wikipedia Commons
Gross Mausdorf (Groß Mausdorf, Gross-Mausdorf; now known as Myszewo; coordinates: 54.1286, 19.163 [54° 7′ 42″ N, 19° 9′ 46″ E]; population in 1905, 393; in 2012, 320) is located approximately 10 kilometres (6 miles) south-east of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), 13 km. (8 mi.) north-east of Malbork (Marienburg), 15 km. (9 mi.) south-west of Elbląg (Elbing), and 44 km. (27 mi.) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig).

In 1332, lands of Gross Mausdorf and Klein Mausdorf were granted to an individual only known by the name of Jan by the city council of Stare Miasto in Elbląg (Elbing). The Feast of the Cross parish church was founded in Gross Mausdorf in the 14th century. Until 1772 Gross Mausdorf was part of 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 Gross Mausdorf was located. Gross Mausdorf 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 Myszewo was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Nowy Staw, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.

Mennonite settlers arrived in Gross Mausdorf probably in the mid 17th century. The 1776 Prussian census lists five Mennonite families in Gross Mausdorf with the following surnames: Andreas, Fast, Hamm, and Wiens. In 1820, the village had 414 residents, including 27 Mennonites.

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