Thörichthof (now Szaleniec, Poland) Source: Wikipedia Commons Wikipedia Commons
Thörichthof (also known as Szalony Dwor and Thörichthoff; now known as Szaleniec; coordinates: 54.0417, 19.2629 [54° 2′ 30″ N, 19° 15′ 46″ E]; population in 1905, 154) is located approximately 14 kilometres (9 miles) east of Malbork (Marienburg), 16 km. (10 mi.) south-west of Elbląg (Elbing), 22 km. (13 mi.) south-east of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), and 55 km. (34 mi.) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig).

Until 1772 Thörichthof 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 Thörichthof was located. Thörichthof was situated in the district (Kreis) of Marienburg until the end of World War I, when it came under the jurisdiction of the German province of East Prussia. Thörichthof 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 Thörichthof was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Stare Pole, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The 1776 Prussian census lists ten Mennonite families in Thörichthof with the following surnames: Casper, Dau, Dick, Dircksen, Fisch, Funck, Grunau, Jantzen, and Kaettler. In 1820 Thörichthof had 124 inhabitants, of which 38 were Mennonite.

Mennonites who were residents of Thörichthof were members of the Thiensdorf-Markushof Mennonite Church.
