The population was estimated in 1906 as 1,730,400.
The Finnish tribes, Muroma and Merya, which formerly inhabited the region, have been absorbed by the Slavs, as also have the Karelians, who are supposed to have formerly inhabited the territory.
The descendants of the few hundred Karelian families, which were settled by Peter the Great on the shores of Lake Pereyaslavl, still, however, preserve their own language.

The Muroma c an probably also be considered as a major grouping of the Mordvins, and therefore the testimony of the written evidence on the Muroma will also be considered in this section.
\par \pard \qj \tab Popov (1948) identified the Muroma with the Mordvins on the strength of the toponyms, while the comparison of the archaeological heritage of the Muroma and the Erza led Stepanov (1968; 1970) to conclude that the Muroma and the Erza were one and the same people.
The identification of the Muroma with the Erza is not a particularly well-g rounded proposal seeing that there are certain differences between their archaeological relics, and neither are there any grounds for doubting, on the basis of the Russian sources, the existence of a Muroma people.

Date: 07 Jul 1998 11:08 PM The Kyivan "Rus Chronicles" which contain the famous "Povist Vremenykh Lit" by Nestor tells very clearly that the Russian nation is descended primarily from Finno-Ugric tribes and not Slavic tribes.
These Finno-Ugric tribes are identified as the Chud, Ves, Meria, Muroma, Cheremysy, Mordva, Perm, Pechera, Yam, Zymyhola, Kors, Narova, and Lib.
These Finno-Ugric tribes were the indigenous tribes which lived in the area which is now European Russia into which the Slavic tribes of Slovenes and Kryvychi slowly pressed in and eventually became absorbed.

The Muroma The ethnonym Muroma was unknown to travellers and merchants from various lands, and only appears in the Russian sources, in the Povest’ vremennyh let, where the Muroma are listed among the peoples of the Oka region (PSRL I, 10-11).

Archaeological remains from the Muroma date back to the first millennium B.C. in the form of fortified towns.
However, Ilya Muromet’s name, like the city itself, is probably also derived from the ancient Muroma tribes, undermining the theory that the city was named after the legendary hero.
The layout of the city’s center, similar to that of Vladimir and Moscow, was based on the radial plan of development prevalent throughout ancient Rus.

Farther south and east lived the now equally extinct Muroma, and then various tribes of Cheremisses, and finally the Mordvins.
The connecting links between the Vepses and the Cheremisses have disappeared, and the groups that have survived have suffered great losses of territory.

 Papers on Finno-Ugric Peoples and other Minority Issues
As a result of wars, intermarriage and cultural mixture several Central Finno-Ugric ethnies such as Merya, Meshchera, and Muroma disappeared swallowed by Slav majority of Vyatichies, Krivichies and other pre-Russian ethnies.
It can be stated that, whereas Central Finno-Ugric ethnies of Merya, Meshchera, Muroma disappeared, Eastern Finno-Ugric ethnies of Mari, Erzya and Moksha, Udmurts and Komi survived and were in the process of transforming themselves to nations principally because their geographically isolated but also culturally border-position between the Orthodox Russia and the Muslim East.
They managed to establish their ethnic identity due to periphery location in the Russian empire and to preserve it because of their unique anthropological features, languages, the system of myths, notably, of assumed common descent.
