THE HISTORY OF SARLÓSPUSZTA
As it is told by the Pustan Rascals (Betyár)...
"Francisco Rákóczi II., a reigning prince (chief) of the early 18th century, during one of the sieges of Kurutz freedom fights set up his camp in the place of present Sarlóspuszta in 1710. It was here that he met a beautiful woman, Sára Sarló, whom he fell in love with for the first glance.
The Transylvanian nobleman had this mansion built as a lovenest for the nice woman and named it after her as the Pusta of SarlóSára (today Sarlóspuszta). During the years of his exile in Turkey Sarlóspuszta became the most important refuge of hiding freedom fighters and also of pustan rascals from the neighbourhood, who, not just found a plate of hot meal there, but hide and protection, as well.
As it is explained by historians...
Tatárszentgyörgy is the Southernmost settlement of Comitat Pest. Its most ancient archeological remains date back to the Bronze Age. The settlement at its present name occur first in 1507 in records. The village had been abandoned during the fifteen-year-war. The resettlement and repopulation of it took place gradually until the end of the 18th century.
