"The first data about it refers to 1710-1720. Then Dmytro Matusevych, comrade of Rich Pospolita national cavalry, has received the sanction on the village foundation from prince Yavlonovs'kyi, Bila Tserkva colonel.
Inhabitors remembered about Matusevych as the village founder in the beginning of XX century. Obviously, the name of village occurs from a surname of the founder.
