History

The founder of the jagir, Rai Singh, a Sandhu Jat from Amritsar, entered the Malwa country about 1763, and secured sixteen villages to the south-west of Khana. After a long struggle for independent existence, the holders found themselves swal lowed up by the Raja of Patiala, who annexed the villages to his own State. An appeal made to Mr. Fraser, Resident at Dehli, resulted in the restoration of eight of them to the Mazra Sardars, who thenceforward came under British protection, furnishing three sowars for duty at the Samrala Tahsil in token of feudal service. Sardar Utam Singh about this time took up his abode at Dhiru Mazra, dividing off the villages with his nephew Gurbakhsh Singh, who thenceward became the head of the Jhabu Mazra branch.

The family was of assistance to the British Government during the Sikh War, furnishing supplies and helping ith carriage. Sardar Ganga Singh was a Zaildar, a member of the District Board, and a Viceregal Darbari. He also received the acknowledgments of Government for having built a school in his village. His jagir share yields Rs. 1,903 per annum.He was owner of eleven hundred bigas of land in the Samrala Tahsil, and of forty-five bigas in Mauza Ghamapur, Amritsar.
