During the political upheaval caused by Matthias Corvinus, the land around Pszczyna was overtaken by Casimir II, Duke of Cieszyn, who sold it in 1517 to the Hungarian magnates of the Thurzó family, forming the Pless state country. In the accompanying sales document issued on 21 February 1517 the village was mentioned as Petrowicze Vnicziowy. The Kingdom of Bohemia in 1526 became part of the Habsburg Monarchy. In the War of the Austrian Succession most of Silesia was conquered by the Kingdom of Prussia, including the village.
Uniczowy was somewhat replaced by Piotrowice in the 17th century. It was merged with Katowice in 1939.
The area of Ochojec was covered with forests until the middle of the 17th century. Around 1650 a folwark was established here by Promnitz family, the owners of Pless (Pszczyna). The small settlement emerged in 1770. The meaningful growth of Ochojec began after World War I.
