Tiraspol Uezd

From 1795 to 1797 Tiraspol, along with the Balta and Olgopol Uezd, was a part of Voznesensky Governorship. Around this time, Tiraspol became the center of Tiraspol Uezd.

From 1797 to 1802 Tiraspol Uezd was a part of Novorossiya Governorate that was created by Pavel the First. During this period Tiraspol Uezd included towns such as Odessa, Balta, Dubossary, Ovidiopol, and Grigoriopol.

From October 8, 1802 to May 15, 1803, Tiraspol Uezd was a part of Nikolaevsky Governorship that was created by Alexander the First. In 1803, the Governorship was renamed from Nikolaevsky to Kherson Governorate. It is unknown, however, what Gubernia the Tiraspol Uezd was under during the three-year span of 1802-1806.

In the year of 1806 the Tiraspol Uezd became part of the Kherson Gubernia.

Odessa Uezd was formed from 1825 to 1827. The Odessky Uezd acquired 21,806 residents and 578,325 acres of land, while Tiraspol Uezd acquired 5640 residents and 268840 acres of land from Olgopol Uezd. In the Fall of 1834, the Tiraspol Uezd (990 acres of land) was again divided, and approximately half of its territory became the foundation for the newly reinstated Ananevsky Uezd.

From the very beginning of its creation Tiraspol Uezd had a diverse class system. Tiraspol Uezd became home to Jews from Kiev, Podolia and Volyn Governorates as well as many gypsies.

In 1835 Tiraspol fortress was abolished, but the city continued to grow, now as a Uezd center, performing mainly administrative and commercial functions.
