Sawan Singh of Sonti was a cousin of Shergill Jat chiefs Chaudhari Dasaundha Singh and Sangat Singh, the founders of the misl. He appropriated to himself several villages around Sonti where he settled down. Later on his family shifted to Mansurwal in Firozpur district. Amloh was captured by him. Hamir Singh of Nabha attacked him and seized his parganah of Amloh containing 36 villages. Sawan Singh appealed to Jassa Singh Ahluwalia, chief of the Dal Khalsa. The two parties accepted him as an arbitrator. He granted Amloh to Nabha with one-fourth of revenues in the remaining 35 villages on Chaharmitenure or one-fourth of revenues.
