History of the Misl Period
The founder of the jatha or band of warriors that subsequently acquired the size and power of a misl, was Sardar Sham Singh a Sandhu Jatt of Narli village in Amritsar District who had battled with the invading forces of Nadir Shah in 1739. He was succeeded by Karam Singh, an Uppal Khatri of the village of Panjgarh in Gurdaspur district. Karam Singh fell fighting against Ahmad Shah Durrani in January 1748 and was succeeded by Sardar Karora Singh.
Karora Singh confined his activities to the tract lying south of the Karigra hills in Hoshiarpur district, and had seized several important towns such as Hoshiarpur, Hariana and Sham Chaurasi before he died in 1761. Baghel Singh who succeeded Karora Singh as leader of the Karorsinghias is celebrated in Sikh history as the conqueror of Mughal Delhi. A Dhillon Jatt, Baghel Singh arose from the village of Jhabal Kalan, in Amritsar district, to become a formidable force in the Sutlej region.
Lepel H. Griffin writes: The Krora Singhia confederacy was founded by Krora Singh, with two companions Mastan Singh and Karam Singh. Sham Singh, who succeeded Mastan Singh, gave his name to a minor confederacy. The Kalsias were the most powerful of this misl, whose principal possessions lay between the Jamna and the Makanda rivers, bounded on the south by the Buria territory.
Sirdar Bhagel Singh was one of the principal Chiefs of the Krora Singhias. His head quarters were Chhachhrauli. The family is extinct. After the death of Bhagel Singh, his widows, Ranis Ram Kour and Raj Kour, held Chhachhrauli for many years, and when they died the estate lapsed to the British Government.
