Włoszczowa was given by Queen of Poland Jadwiga to Marshal of the Crown Dymitr of Goraj in the late 14th century. Since then the town stayed in hands of private owners for many years. One of them, starosta of Chęciny Hieronim Szafraniec, managed to obtain municipal rights for Włoszczowa from king Zygmunt Stary (Sigismund the Old) in 1539.
