Sardar Sanwal Singh of Chamyari, was the brave Randhawa Jat who was the founder of the Chamyari estate, and became a member of the Bhangi Misl around 1750. He fought under Hari Singh Bhangi in many battles. He took the possession of a large tract of country on the left bank of river Ravi, including Ajnala and Chamyari. Sanwal Singh was killed in battle leaving no issue, but his widow Mai Malkian made over the estate to Nar Singh, a cousin of her deceased husband. This arrangement was confirmed by the Gurmata and Nar Singh the acknowledged heir of all Sanwal Singh’s estates.
