The Badrukhan family is a branch of the Jind family. It is founded by Sardar Bhup Singh, son of Raja Gajpat Singh and the brother of Raja Bhag Singh of Jind. He received a separate estate in 1789, from which time he was always considered independent of Jhind. However, in 1834, the Jind line being extinct on the death of Raja Sangat Singh, was allowed by the British Government to succeed, and became the father of the present Raja Sarup Singh of Jhind. Basawa Singh, uncle of Sarup Singh was the first Chief of Badrukhan.
