PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: Founded
before 1549. Baraundha (or Pathar Kachhar) was a petty sanad state of
about
218 square miles. Formerly it was much larger, comprising most of the
present
Banda district of U.P., the family having held the country for at least
400 years. The name Pathar Kachhar was derived from its position on the
skirts of the Vindhayas. The ruling family claimed to be an old one and
to belong to the Raghuvansi clan of the solar division of Rajputs. The
original seat of the family was in Rasin in Banda district, originally
called Raja Vasini, where there are many old remains. The early history
is, however, very obscure. During Bundela supremacy, the state appears
to have been held on a sanad from Hirdeshah of Panna. On the accession
of British to paramount power, Raja Mokhamsingh was recognised and
confirmed
in his territory by a sanad granted in 1807. In 1893, the Raja Bahadur
was allowed to maintain a military force of 15 cavalry, 75 infantry and
6 guns. Rulers were as follows…
