Brief history

The first mention of Miloslavskoye village dated back to the XIV century. One usually connect its foundation and name with Tatar murza (prince) Salakhmir kin, turned from the Golden Horde to Oleg Ivanovich, the Grand Prince of Ryazan. After baptizing Salakhmir was given a Christian name Ivan and an Old Russian patronymic name Miroslavovich and married prince Olegs sister Anastasia, obtaining the territory, which now the Miloslavskoye district occupies, as a domain. In the XVII century a part of the Miloslavskaya patrimony was seized by Moscow boyar Matvey Miloslavskiy. In the Okladnaya book (accountant cadastral book) dated back to 1676 there is a reference to Miloslavshchina, «novoslebnoye village». In the first half of the XIX century the village was named Alekseevskoye after the local church, but in the official records it was indicated with the addition «eke Miloslavskoye».
