Sunder Singh a resident of the village of Mokal (which was founded by his ancestor Mokal Sindhu) was father of seven sons, of whom only the genealogy of two is given here, as the descendants of these alone became distinguished. His only daughter, Kauran, he married to Sardar Lal Singh, a Jagirdar in the vicinity of Pakpattan, who took his brother-in-laws(Thakur Singh and Kor Singh) into his service, and they rode behind him in all his marauding expeditions till their sister, jealous for the influence of her husband, induced him to turn them adrift. Jawand Singh(son of Thakur Singh) with his cousins came to Lahore and entered the service of Ranjit Singh. For some time they remained unnoticed; but at the bloody battle of Baisah, fought near Attook in July, 1813, by Diwan Mobkam Chand against the Afghan Wazir, the cousins, six of whom were engaged in the fight, were so conspicuous for bravery and strength that the Maharaja gave them the jagir of Rangilpur, worth Rs. 2,500, and to Jawand Singh, who had specially distinguished himself, five villages in the Gujrat district, valued at Ra. 30,000, subject to the service of one hundred and fifty sawars ; and his brothers were placed under his command. In 1818 le served at Multan, and the next year in Kashmir where he was severely wounded in the side by a spear. For this wound he received an assignment of Rs. 2,500 per annum out of the Kashmir revenue. The family jagir at one time reached Rs. 1,85,000 including Rs. 2,000 from the estate of their inhospitable connection, Sardar Lal Singh.

Atter the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1839, and of Jawand Singh in 1840, the jagirs of the Mokal family remained in tact; those which had been specially assigned to Jawand Singh descending to his two sons, Bela Singh and Gurmukh Singh, for the estate had been divided in 1836. Their contingent of two hundred and fifty horsemen was, however, raised to three hundred, and the brothers were placed under the command of Prince Nao Nihal Singh. They did not get on well together; the elder suspecting the younger of a desire to obtain not only the larger portion of the jagir, but the Sardarship itself. Raja Hira Singh was minister at the time, and on a nazrana of Re. 20,000 being paid by Sardar Bela Singh he confirmed him in the chiefship and iagir, which Gurmukh Singh took o much to heart that he died of vexation shortly afterwards, in 1844.
