History

Gyomaendr?d was before two separated settlement (Gyoma and Endr?d), which united only in 1982. Until the 20C the history of the two settlements was very different.


The first source which mentioned the name of Gyoma dates back to the 14C. It wasn’t an important settlement. Only about 100-200 people lived here during the centuries. When the Turks invaded Hungary, Gyoma became deserted. After, its new owner gave some privileges to the people who came to settle here. This time some Calvinist people came to live here. Gyoma slowly developed, and in the 19C it became an oppidium, which means a small town with some privileges. Soon the railway was laid down here. Due to this, the importance of Gyoma grew a little, but still remained a small, agricultural town. It became famous, when Izidór Kner founded a printing office in the town.


Due to the fact, that most of the owners of Endr?d were noble families, this settlement was more important than the nearby Gyoma. In the 17C it was already a noble curialis settlement, which means the whole settlement got the privileges of the nobles. All this had changed during the 19-20C. The peasants of Endr?d lost their properties, and all the farms became noble properties. These people had to search job somewhere else. First they started to work by the regularization of the river ways. When this work finished, they migrated to Gyoma or other neighboring places. Lot of people decided to migrate to the New World, and settled there.
