Description

Genealogy of the author's family can be traced back to the 10th century A.D. His earliest known ancestor, Purushottama Dutta, was the patriarch of one of the five Kayastha clans that migrated with five Brahmin clans from Kannauj in Uttar Pradesh to Bengal, at the invitation of the legendary King Adisur. These families came to settle down and assist the king in strengthening his administration & re-establishing the Vedic religion in Bengal.

In the 14th century, Tekari Dutta the 12th in line from Purushottama, moved from Bally to Muzaffarpur Pargana which was the contemporary name for the Andul-Mohiary area of present-day Howrah district. He purchased a considerable amount of real estate to become the first zamindar of the region. The Nawab awarded him the hereditary title of "Chowdhury".

The illustrious Kolkata-based "Dutta Family of Hatkhola" was the first major offshoot from Andul around late 17th or early 18th century A.D.

Other offshoots, including the author's own family, have also moved to Kolkata, elsewhere in India, and abroad.

This book is based on data from two older books written by the family's ancestors, supported by information from other referenced documents. Family tree charts cover about twenty-nine generations.

About the Author

The author is a retired Indian-American, born in Calcutta during the infamous times of World War II and the "Great Bengal Famine". Though he has lived outside Bengal for most of his life, a major part of it in the United States, he cherishes fond memories of annual visits to his ancestral village of Andul, West Bengal as a child with his grandfather and parents. The nostalgia prompted him to write about his ancestry that can be traced back to the 10th century AD through 29 generations. The book is based on two older books written in Bengali by the family's ancestors, but goes further by including referenced documents and information gathered from family members.
