In the 19th century the whole area existed as a vast country: Katowice and the Karbowo, Brynów and Bogucice estates. At that time numerous coal-mines and steelworks were established, for example, in 1804 one of the biggest steelworks, still active the Baildon steelwork was opened by the prince Hohenlohe together with the Irish engineer John Baildon. It was the first steelwork in the world where the domestic coke was burnt.
