before the annexation of Oudh, Cha-
kladdr or Chaudhri of Sandila. The
present Chaudhri's grandfather, Chau-
dhri Hashmat Ali, was well spoken of
by Sir William Sleeman in his account
of Oudh. He at first took part
against the Government in the Mutiny
of 1857, and was a noted and active
rebel leader, frequently engaged with
the British troops, and acting as
Nazim of Hardoi and the neighbouring
districts. He had, however, the repu-
tation of being an honourable enemy,
never guilty of any cruelties ; and
early in 1858 he tendered his submis-
sion, and became as active on the side
of the Government, being engaged in
many actions against the rebels. For
these services he received a Jchilat and
a grant of land. He was succeeded
by his son, Chaudhri Khaslat Husain,
who was an Honorary Magistrate and
Assistant Collector, Secretary to the
Aujuman-i-Hind of Oudh, and, shortly
before his death, was given the rank
of Raja as a personal distinction.
The present Chaudhri is an Honorary
Magistrate ; he has a son and heir,
named Muhammad Jan, born 1867.
Residence: Hardoi, Oudh.

MUHAMMAD BAKAR All (of Ko-

taha), Mir. The title is hereditary ;



the Mir belonging to a Sayyid (Mu-
hammadan) family, claiming descent
from Kasim Ali Khan, who was the
Physician to the Imperial Court at
Delhi, and acquired the Kotaha terri-
tory in the last century in the following
circumstances. The ruler of Kotaha
was a Rajput Raja named Dup Chand,
a feudatory of the Raja of Sirmur.
Being expelled by the Sirmur Raja,
he repaired to Delhi to get assistance
from the Emperor, and having given
one of his daughters to the Imperial
zandna, and forced his son to embrace
Islam, he obtained some troops to re-
instate him. The force was accom-
panied by the Imperial Physician,
Kasim Ali Khan, as Political Agent.
Both the Raja Dup Chand and his
son, Fil Murad, died without issue, so
Kasim Ali Khan then established him-
self in their place at Kotaha. His
grandson, Mir Muhammad Jafar Ali
Khan, obtained from General Ochter-
lony, after the expulsion of the Gur-
khas in 1815, the grant of the jdgir of
Kotaha. During the Mutiny of 1857
the Mir Muhammad Akbar Ali Khan
was suspected of sympathizing with
the rebels, and his fort at Kotaha was
destroyed. Again, in 1864, the fort
was rebuilt, contrary to the orders of
Government ; it was again destroyed,
and the Mir banished. He died in
exile, and his grandson, the present
Mir, was reinstated in his estates. He
has two sons— Sayyid Muhammad
and Muhammad Jafar Ali. Residence:
Kotaha, Ambala, Punjab.

MUHAMMAD BAKAR An KHAN (of

is hereditary, having been originally
conferred by the King of Oudh, Mu-
hammad Ali Shah, on an ancestor of
the present Nawab, and recognized by
the British Government in 1877. The
Nawab is descended from Khwaja
Safi, a Kashmiri noble who took service
with Asaf-ud-daula, fifth King of
Oudh. Khwaja Safi's son, Hakim
Mehndi, was Nazim of Muhamdi and
Khairabad from 1799 to 1819; Prime
Minister to Nasir-ud-din Haidar from
1830 to 1832, and to Muhammad Ali
Shah in 1837. As Chakladdr he made

to his brother's son, Ahmad Ali, Nawao
Munawar-ud-daula, who was the Prime
Minister of the King Muhammad AH
Shah, and himself connected by mar-
riage with the King's family. The

from Peshawar into India. The Khan
Bahadur's father, Muhammad Arif
Khan, was the son of Abdulla Khan,
alias Buddu Khan ; he entered the
service of the British Government,
and on retirement on pension received
a grant of land. The Khan Bahadur
entered the service of the British
Government in 1847, and rendered
good service as a police officer in the
Hoshiarpur district. In 1848 he was
severely wounded in the fight at the
Amb Bagh in the Jashwan Dan ; where,

MUHAMMAD FAYYAZ ALI KHAN (of

were conferred on September 9, 1870,
and July 12, 1881. Succeeded his father,
the late Sir Muhammad Faiz Ali Khan,
K.C.S.I., in 1894 ; the latter had been
created a Knight Commander of the
Most Exalted Order of the Star of
India on January 28, 1876. Belongs to
an ancient Musalman Rajput family,
whose ancestors were Badgujars who
settled in the Bulandshahr district
about 1185 a.d. Partab Singh was
invited by Prithviraj, the last Chau-
han Emperor of Delhi, to assist him
against the Chandels; and he subse-
quently settled at Pahasu, where the
family have ever since been seated.
He received a large territory as the
dowry of his wife, the daughter of
the Dor Raja of Kol. Eleventh in
descent from him was L41 Singh, a
favourite of the Emperor Akbar, who
received from the Emperor the title
of Lai Khan ; hence this branch of
the family is called Lalkhani. Dur-
ing the reign of Aurangzeb, the family
became Musalmans, and in 1774 the
Emperor Shah Alam granted a large
estate to Nahar Ali Khan. He and
his nephew, Dundi Khan, opposed the
British in the Mahratta war in 1803,
and lost their estates. Dundi Khan
was pardoned, but again rebelling, his
estates were given to Mardan Ali
Khan, another nephew of Nahar Ali
Khan, who had been faithful to the
British cause. His large territories
were divided among his five sons ; one
of them, the late Murad Ali Khan, was
the grandfather of the present Nawab
of Pahasu. Murad Ali and his son,
Sir Faiz Ali, behaved with conspicuous
loyalty and bravery throughout the
Mutiny of 1857. The latter was Com-
mander-in-Chief of the Jaipur troops,
and rendered most valuable services,
and was rewarded with a khilat, an
extensive grant of lands, and the
various honours already noted. He
