Dabrowice, given town status about 1455, continued to develop in the 16th century and the beginning of the 17th century. However, the development decreased; in 1870, Dabrowice (Dombrowice) lost its town status.

In the middle of the 18th century, the ruling government wanted to stimulate growth in Dabrowice. So, the government made it easier for several Jewish families to settle there. In 1793, there were 3 Jewish butchers, one baker, 4 tailors and 2 merchants. The Jews of Dabrowice belonged to the Jewish community in Leczyca (Lenczyca).

During the Nazi occupation, the Dabrowice Jewish population was transferred to Kutno in June 1940. This took place a short time before the establishment of the ghetto in Kutno.
