Post subject: Livonian War in 1573: Regiment of Ukrainian Cossacks
I am hoping someone can help me navigate Polish National archives (including Krakow) for information on a registry of Ukrainian Cossacks (as mercenaries?) whose regiment was lead by a Colonel Jan Oryszkiewicz [CJO] during the later part of the Livonian War. Please note I am not fully sure of the spelling of his surname. I am also very much interested in who this man as well.
CJO lead a regiment of cossacks recruited from the Ukrainian villages of Sabadash and Buzovka (currently located in Zhashkiv Raion, Cherkasy…it might have been part of Tarachsha Raion then).
My understanding is following the war that CJO paid these men from the royal treasury and that a register containing their names exists in either archive.
It is this list which would be greatly appreciated as part of my genealogy research.
Thank you in advance

There is also a book of Petro Sas, Zaporożci u polśko–moskowśkij wijni naprikinci Smuty 1617–1618 rr., Biła Cerkwa 2010. Author based his research on cossaks register of colonel Żdan Konsza in 1619 r. and register of Zaporożców captured in war 1617–1618 r.
Regarding Colonel Jan Oryszkiewicz, he was hetman of first know regestr of 530 Cossacs. It must be dated pre 1580.
