as a minor August 29, 1885. The
family are Kshatriya Hindus, and
were anciently feudatories of the old
Rajas of Orissa ; said to have been
founded by Harihar Samant Singhar,
who established himself in Dhenkanal
after killing the aboriginal Raja
Dhenka, from whom the State derives
its modern name. The titles of Sa-
mant, Singhar, Brahmarbar were con-
ferred on'the family by the old Rajas
of Orissa. Subsequently the title of
Mahindra Bahadur was conferred by
the Mahrattas, who also recognized the
title of Raja, which finally was con-
ferred on the predecessor of the pre-
sent chief by the Government of India
in 1874. The family crest and seal is
the minaketana, a flag bearing the
emblem of the sacred fish. The area

Rais-ud-daula Sipahdar-ul-Mulk, Ma-
haraj-Adhiraj Sri Sawai, Mahdrdj
Rand Nihal Singh, Lokindar Baha-
dur, Diler Jang, Jai Deo. Belongs
to a Jat (Hindu) family, which
traces its pedigree back to the 11th
century, when it held lands under the
Puar Kings of Delhi. In later times
it acquired territory on the banks of
the Chambal, and was powerful in the
18th century, when the Rdnd of Gohad,
ancestor of the present Maharaj Rand,
joined the British troops in the Mah-
ratta war in 1779. The title of Rand
had been recognized by the Emperor
Sikandar Lodi of Delhi, but in 1779 the
British recognized the Rdnd as Mahd-
rdj Rdnd. In 1805 Lord Cornwallis
granted Gohad to Sindhia, and in ex-
change granted to the Mahdrdj Rdnd
Kirat Singh (ancestor of the present
chief) the territories of Dholpur, Bdri,
and Rdjdkhera. Kirat Singh was suc-
ceeded by Bhagwant Singh, who
showed great loyalty during the
Mutiny of 1857, and was created a
Knight Commander of the Most
Exalted Order of the Star of India.
His son married a daughter of the late
Rdjd of Patidld, but died before his
father, leaving a son and heir, the
present Mahdrdj Rdnd, who succeeded
his grandfather in 1873. The area of
the State is 1200 square miles ; its popu-
lation about 250,000, chiefly Hindus,

the end of the last century the then
chief captured from the Thdkurs of
Bamraoli a golden-yellow flag, with
a figure of Hanumdn (the monkey-god)
in the centre of the field, and this has
been subsequently adopted as the
family cognizance. Arms : Or, a

sword between two towers or. Sup-
porters : Two Rajput warriors in full
armour. Crest : A " Narsinghji " (man-

Rao Bahadur. Received the title on

DHRANGADRA, His Highness Sir Man-
singhji Ranmalsinghji, K.C.S.I., Rdj
Saheb of. A ruling chief ; b. January
11, 1837. Succeeded to the gadi on
the death of his father, his late High-
ness the Raj Saheb Ranmalsinghji,
K.C.S.I., on October 28, 1869. Is the
head of the Jhala Rajputs, and the
chief of this family has consequently
long held the title of Raj Saheb, while
the title of " Maharana " is commonly
used by the Jhala clansmen of their
chief, and it is also commonly used as
the vernacular equivalent of " His
Highness," the title conferred by the
Queen Empress. The JMla Rajputs
are said to have entered Kathiawar
from Sind in the 8th century a.d., and
the founder of this dynasty is stated to
have been Harapal Devji, who obtained
from the Solankhi Rajput Chief of
Patan the grant of the district sub-
sequently known as Jhalawar in
Kathiawar. It may be noted that the
State of Jhalawar in Rajputana was
founded in the beginning of the 18th
century a.d. by Jhala emigrants from
Kathiawar. His Highness's ancestors
— from whom also descend the chiefs
of Wankaner, Limri, Wadhwan,
Chura, Sayla, and Than-Lakhtar —
were settled first at Patri in Ahmada-
bad ; then at Halwad in Kathiawar ;
and finally at Dhrangadra. Sir
Mansinghji has been distinguished for
the enlightened character of his
administration, especially in the
matters of public instruction and
internal communications. He has
established an efficient girls' school at
Dhrangadra, and many good schools
throughout the State ; and has con-
structed many good roads, and other
public works. To commemorate the
visit of His Royal Highness the Duke
of Edinburgh to Bombay in 1870, His
Highness contributed a large sum
towards the erection of a Dharmsdla
at Rajkot ; and his loyalty was still
more conspicuously displayed on the
occasion of the landing of His Royal



Highness the Prince of Wales at
Bombay in 1875, which was celebrated
by the erection and endowment of the
Albert Edward Hospital at Dhranga-
dra. His Highness was prevented by
serious illness from attending the
Imperial Assemblage at Delhi on the
Proclamation of Her Most Gracious
Majesty as Empress of India, but he
was on that occasion created a Knight
Commander of the Most Exalted Order
of the Star of India, and received the
addition of four guns to his salute
as a personal distinction. When he
was presented with the insignia of
the Star of India, at the same time as
His Highness the Jam of Nauanagar,
the Political Agent, speaking for the
Government, said : " His Highness the
Raj Saheb of Dhrangadra commands
respect as the head, both of the Jhala
tribe and of a ruling house second to
none in domestic virtue. He now
accedes to the honours enjoyed by his
father, Sir Ranmalsinghji, the worthy
son of a worthy sire. The decorations
granted to these princes are the natural
ornaments of exalted hereditary rank."
Much sympathy was felt for His
Highness when, in 1879, he lost his
eldest son and heir, the late Rajkumar
Jaswantsinghji, whose son (the grand-
son of the present chief) is now the
heir-apparent to the gadi. The area
of the State is 1156 square miles; its
population about 100,000, chiefly
Hindus, but including about 6000
Muhammadans. The Raj Saheb main-
tains a military force of 103 cavalry,
470 infantry, and 9 guns, and is
entitled to a salute of 15 guns. Resid-
ence : Dhrangadra, Kathiawar.

Jaisinghji, Thakur Saheb of. A ruling

October 26, 1886. Is a Jareja Rajput,
descended from a brother of Jam
Rawal, the first Jam of Nauanagar,
who founded that State in 1542 a.d. ;
and the family is also the same as that
of His Highness the Maharao Raja of
Kutch. The area of the State is about
283 square miles ; its population is
about 22,000, chiefly Hindus, but
including nearly 3000 Muhammadans.
The Thakur Saheb maintains a military
force of 25 cavalry, 285 infantry, ancl
6 guns, and is entitled to a salute of
