The Pavlovtsy movement arose in the villages of Pavlovka, Rechki and Yastrebennoe in the Sumy district of Kharkov province in 1886. This group of religious dissenters came to be regarded as both Stundists and Tolstoyans. Above all, they were influenced by the example and teaching of Prince Dmitry Alexandrovich Khilkov (1858-1914) whose family estate was nearby. Their pacifist views brought them into frequent conflict with Orthodox Church and Tsarist State authorities. They maintained close contact with the Doukhobors in the Caucasus and Canada.

In 1900-1905, nine Pavlovtsy families settled among the Doukhobors in Canada. The Ol'khovik, Sereda (Sardoff), Dudchenko (Doodchenko), Matveyenko (Matvenko), Prokopenko, Tverdokhleb (Twerdochleb), Teterenko (Tetoff), Surzhik (Surjik) and Turchin families settled at the Doukhobor village of Kamenka near Stoney Creek in the Kamsack district of Saskatchewan. They homesteaded near the Bunnesville post office and founded the Charkoff school district.
