    PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: The
    founder of the family was Raja Mahendra Singh, the deposed
    Raja of Kumaon, who was forced to flee. Provision was made for the
    retention by the exiled family of some doubtful tenure of a portion of
    the Tarai for their subsistence. Raja Mahendra Singh retired first to
    Rudrapur and then to Kilpuri, but, owing to bad management, this
    Pargana was reduced to a swamp, and was rendered so unhealthy that on
    the petition of the representatives of the family to the British
    Government, it was exchanged for the confirmation of possession in
    taluqa Chachait in Pilibhit district. Kunwar Partab Singh, son of
    Mahendra Singh, sued his uncle, Lal Singh, for a share in Chachait, but
    his claim was dismissed. He then petitioned the Government, who gave
    him 250Rs per mensem in 1820 and his claim to Bazpur was also denied.
    Lal Singh had held possession as head of the family and retained it.
    Estate holders were….
