Sulymivka

Sulymivka
 
It is a village (241 residents) in Boryspil Region situated on the left bank of Stara Krasylivka River. In the early 20s of the 17th c. it was founded by Hetman of Zaporizhzhia Kozaks Ivan Sulyma. He proceeded from the family of Ukrainian gentry and for some time served as the helper of the manager of Boryspil and Baryshivka estates of Polish magnate S. Zolkiewski, and then went to the Zaporizhzhia Sich. In 1621, 1628 and 16331. Sulyma participated in Kozak raids against Turks and Crimean Tatars. At the same time, the Patronage Church was erected in Sulymivka (1622-1629) [33]; it is the only reminder of the tragic hetman. In 1635, he led the detachment of unregistered Kozaks and captured Kodak (now Stari Kodaky Village) built according to the design of engineer G. Beauplan and annihilated Polish garrison. This was the extreme-south outpost of Rzeczpospolita on Dnipro, and the retaliation was violent indeed. In a few months Poles together with the registered Kozaks won back the fortress, and hetman and his five helpers were publidy quartered in Warsaw.

I. Sulyma is the founder of the known gentry family, representatives of which were colonels, lieutenant generals, judges and bishops from the 17th to 19th c.
