Annotation:  The article analyzes the model of service land ownership, which was established in the southern border counties of Russia in the XVII century. The main attention is paid to the processes of redistribution of the serviceable landed property within the service «city» as a community uniting different armed groups of the population. We consider the movement of possessions within the framework of family ties, blood and blood. The peculiarities of the transition of the service lands to relatives of both sexes are revealed in conditions of prevalence of the local type of land ownership. It was established that the transfer of the local land was of a mixed nature, when part of the «dacha» remained with relatives, and the other part left the family. It was established that the conditions of life and service in the border county could not lead to a wide spread of unconditional land ownership within the clan, to the development of fiefdom on the southern borders of the state. The study is based on the documents of the Local Order – scribal and refusal books, processed with the help of quantitative methods

Keywords:  landed property, estate, scribe books, refusal books, the south of Russia, the XVII century
