MIRZA SINGH OF NAUDHERA (d. 1787),wasson of Chuhar Singh, a Shergil Jat. One of his ancestors, Chaudhari Sarvani, had founded the village of Naushera, also known as Raipur Sarvani, during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahari and was permitted to hold it rent free as remuneration for collecting the revenue of the neighbouring districts. For generations, the family held the office of Chaudhrahat paying the revenue into the government treasury until Mirza Singh, about 1752, joined the Kanhaiya Misl under Sandhu Jat Sardar Jai Singh and Haqiqat Singh, and received from them several villages as his share of the conquered territory. Mirza Singh died in 1787, and Haqiqat Singh`s son, Jaimal Singh, resumed the major portion of his estates.
