JRI Poland #Poland LEWKOWICZ/GNIESLAW multiple surnames #poland

I am helping a cousin search for records for her father's Geneslaw family.
In a number of Polish records in Piotrkow Gubernia, in Belchatow and
Czestochowa, among others, I am finding many instances of the name written
as LEWKOWICZ/GNIESLAW or GNIESLAW/LEWKOWICZ. I have never seen anything
like this in 19th century records, and would appreciate someone explaining
to me the meaning of multiple surnames.

Thank you.
