Jodh Singh Of Chashmawala (d. 1859) belonged, like his father Gajja Singh Of Chashmawala, to the Sikh Jat Misl chiefship of the Kanhaiyas. Later he joined service under Maharaja Ranjit Singh Of Lahore. In 1822, he was sent to Attock where he held charge of the fort for four years. He was then recalled to Lahore and granted a jdgir in Shakargarh tahsil of Gurdaspur district, with a third share in the village of Chashma, subject to the service of 35 horse. When Hira Singh Dogra became minister, Jodh Singh was posted to his own regiment, the Dera Khas. Although an old man, he took part with his contingent in the first Anglo-Sikh war of 1845-46. After the cessation of hostilities, he retired to his estate at Chashma. He died in 1859.
