The Nowobilski family (formerly written Nowobielski) originates from Bialka village, located in the Podhale region. The village is situated on a river of the same name. The Bialka river collects waters from vaious mountain lakes within the region. These include Morskie Oko (Sea's Eye), the Five Polish Lakes, as well as the White Water Valley. It is unknown for which services or distinctions the family recieved their noble designation from the royal chancery. Perhaps it was for joining the infantry under Zamojski to capture fortresses in the compaign on Moscow or perhaps it was later, for joining in the battle against the invading Swedes, under King John Casimir.
