An early summary of the population of the Rohatyn administrative district (including Czercze, Potok, Podgrodzie, Ruda, Kleszczówna, Wierzbiełowice, and Załuże) is detailed in the Population Summary in the Estates of the Rohatyn District in the Halicz Land of His Grace Kasztelan of Kraców, the Crown’s Great Hetman (Comput Pogłownego w Dobrach do Starostwa Rohatynskiego nalezacych w Ziemi Halickiej J. O. Jsmci Pana Kasztelana Krakowskiego Hetmana Wielkiego Koronny), dated the 7​th of December 1710. The great hetman to which the title refers was Count Adam Mikołaj Sieniawski, the owner and starost of the Rohatyn district.

Although individuals are not named, the population is divided into occupations for purposes of taxation; in the list below, the occupations are translated directly from the original record. It is likely that this count does not include children. The count for Rohatyn is divided into the town itself, plus the neighboring hamlet of Babince and the estate of Podwinie (which belonged to the parish).
