The e with a hook under it sounds like en. Olęderskie = Hollendry. For a good description of this, written by one of our members, see

The site http://lapidaria.wikidot.com/ has many interesting side paths.
If you scroll down the left side, you'll find "Osadnictwo"
Click it and you'll get a Google map with the many settlements of
"Kujawsko-Pomorskim". Put your mouse pointer on any one and it's name
I knew there were many villages, but it shows better when they're marked.
This map shows many settlements in the eastern portion as 'Rumunki' and
The map legend (Legenda mapy) at the bottom describe that the western
settlements(Osadnictwo) are 'Osadnictwo olęderskie' and 'Osadnictwo rumunkowe'
as the eastern settlements. The other words did not translate with Google.
A previous discussion here, settled on rumunki meaning 'a cleared area',
but olęderskie doesn't translate either.. I'd guess that it may mean
established? or .. Does anyone know?
There are also gravestone images to be seen.
