Who was Stefan [Filipovich] Bezuglov?
« on: February 25, 2014, 06:05:06 PM »
Dear Imperial Russia enthusiasts,

Would you be so kind to assist me in finding out more information about my Grandfather?
His name was Stefan Filipovich Bezuglov (father Filip or Filipovich Bezuglov). I understand my grandfather was in the Tsar Nicholas II personal convoy and I believe he may have been a Kuban cossack based on his uniform. He used to tell my father and aunties he physically had to carry little Alexei at times around because he was unwell. The photos I have uploaded to dropbox are photos of photos and I am able to get clearer pictures if need be. Would you be able to share light on who he was? What regiment he was in? What was he?

https://db.tt/S8lUh3gb - When he was a young man.

https://db.tt/IzkPK5su - When he was elderly (note his badge?)

https://db.tt/dm6B5QVR - Sitting on the very end (2nd row on left) next to lady (directly behind little child). NOTE: We believe the 5th man (from left) in the front lying down in this photo is Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia. The plaque on the back right wall would be very significant. This is a photo of a photo - so I will need to scan it as it is in Cyrillic.

 https://db.tt/Hjoc6Tj3 - Maybe someone can read the Cyrillic on this photograph?

https://db.tt/fSYp6LC8 - A closeup of a different photo - He is 4th man on the right. 3rd row next to the three men with black hats. He has a different coloured one.


Any help would be amazingly helpful. I've been trying to research my family tree since I was a little girl and only finally got these pictures sent to me.

Regards,
Svetlana Bezuglov

It doesn't seem like the images from Dropbox can be viewed.

Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

No hits for Степан Филиппович Безуглов.

Степан Филиппович Безуглов = Stepan Filippovich Bezuglov. The most likely spelling of his name in Russian.

It says approximately:
Фотографiе Л. Д. Грановская = Photographs L. D. Granovskaya
Г. Майконь = G. Maykon'

So probably just the name of the photographer. Maykon' means "May horse".

I understand my grandfather, Stepan was called Stepan Filipovic Bezuglov His father was called Filip Bezuglov

For some reason the 1st and most important picture which reveals everything doesn't want to open:

So here it is again on another link:

Yes. There is the small possibility that the form Стефан / Stefan is the original, but the normal Russian form is Степан.

BTW interesting meaning of your surname: Без углов = Without corners, i.e. homeless, according to some sources.

There is a town called Bezuglov: http://mapsinworld.com/russia-astrakhanskaya-oblast-bezuglov-map.html - But I don't know if it has any correlation to Stefan. What I really need to know is who was he? What is his uniform? He was in the Tsar Nicholas II personal convoy and looked after Alexei at times. I want to know more about him. What the shoulder epaulettes and medals mean?

Anything anyone?

Thank you guys so much for your help thus far.

Svetlana.

You are welcome. I have next to no military expertise. But when the military experts here start, you will be surprised by the details they can give!

https://db.tt/dm6B5QVR - Sitting on the very end (2nd row on left) next to lady (directly behind little child). NOTE: We believe the 5th man (from left) in the front lying down in this photo is Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia.
Oh, what makes you think that?

Quote
https://db.tt/fSYp6LC8 - A closeup of a different photo - He is 4th man on the right. 3rd row next to the three men with black hats. He has a different coloured one.

I'd rather hazard that Grand Duke Nikolay Nikolayevich the Younger is in this picture, in normal military uniform to the left of the centre.

I think this because it looks exactly like the Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich of Russia (look how distinctive the eyes are). I could be mistaken but I feel not. This is why I can't wait for the military experts to start commenting and viewing my pictures.

With the Captain hat? Not sure. I would need to get a clearer copy of the photo.

Anyhow, I await information on the regiment, the uniform identification and medals in anticipation. At this stage all I know is that he was apart of the personal convoy for the Emperor Tsar II and watched over Alexei at times.

Do we know the names of the guards in this photo with the Tsar and Alexei? I also think there is strong resemblence between my Grandfather and the man right behind the Tsar (on the right - when looking at the photo) which is the Tsar's left. But I could be wrong. Just look so similar it is scary!

I just wanted to add to this that it says DANILOV with the Numerals 164 on the back of this photo? https://db.tt/dm6B5QVR:: If anyone can please help me with who my Grandfather was? Where he was? Which Regiment? What is his uniform and medals I would forever be greatful.
