Abstract. Introduction. The article is devoted to the first mention of people and events related to the fortress of Tsaritsyn restored in 1615 in the account books of the treasury court, starting with the first mention and up to 1622.

Methods and materials. In total, the account books of the treasury court kept records of 36 cases of granting fabrics for the outlined period. These records on services at the fortress contain the names of 72 servicemen including: voivode, 8 boyar’s children, 2 colonels, 5 sotniks and 25 Tsaritsyn streltsy, 8 Tsaritsyn pathfinders. According to published materials of the Order-in-charge Prikaz, the paper analyzes the dynamics of Tsaritsyn garrison restoration correlating with the data of account records.

Analysis. The analysis of systemized records from September 1619 shows that the Tsaritsyn garrison was fully restored after the restoration of the fortress and was able to defend not only the fortress, but also the entire territory controlled by it. The garrison carried out all the basic functions to combat the Cossack robberies on the Volga and cleared areas of steppe roads situated on the West and East of Tsaritsyn from the Azov, Nagai and Cossack robbers.

Results. As a result, the study introduces a valuable set of written sources into scientific use, which made it possible to clarify a whole range of issues and problems of the early history of Tsaritsyn.

Key words: the Time of Troubles, the Lower Volga Region, Tsaritsin, service people, treasury court, consequences of the Time of Troubles.
