JODH SINGH MANN OF MUGHAL CHAKK (d. 1874), a colonel in the army of Bhatti Jat ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the son of Jai Singh, was a descendant of the Mann Jat family of Mughal Chakk Estate. This family originated from one Laddha, who, having shifted from Delhi, laid the foundation of a  village of Mann in the suburbs of Gujranwala where he had settled. He was appointed headman of twenty-two villages around it which rank lasted long with the family. Jodh Singh`s grandfather, Sarja Singh Mann, was an ally of SardarCharat Singh Of Sukerchakia.

The Mann family achieved great honour and influence under Maharaja Ranjit Singh and almost twenty-two members of it held trustworthy military posts. During the Anglo Sikh war of 1848-49, Jodh Singh fought against the British, but before long came back to Lahore. Jagirs of this branch of the family were confiscated by the British government after the Punjab was annexed. Jodh Singh was, however, granted a pension of rupees seven hundred and twenty. He died in 1874.
