In the 1570s two military serving men in the Novgorod lands, Grigor’ii and Fedosei, sons of Boris Bachmanov, submitted a series of petitions to state secretaries in Moscow. The petitions, initially containing the brothers’ requests for pomest’e lands for themselves and then displaying their dispute over the manner in which the lands had been divided, provide insight into the personal lives of pomest’e-based military servicemen, the operations of the pomest’e system, and features of the system debated by scholars.
