Stuhm Lowlands (Stuhmsche Niederung), formerly a district in West Prussia (now the administrative districts of Sztum and Ryjewo), with the villages and hamlets of Schulwiese (now Jarzębina), Zwanzigerweide, Montauerweide, Rehhof (now Ryjewo), Schweingrube, Rudnerweide, Gross-Schardau, and Klein-Schardau. In 1744 these villages were predominantly Mennonite. These Mennonites, belonging to the Frisian (in Dutch Naamlijst called Waterlander) branch, formed a single congregation, at first called Stuhmsche Niederung, later mostly Tragheimerweide or Zwanzigerweide.
