इतिहास

ठाकुर देशराज[2] ने लिखा है ....भरतपुर शहर में जमने और अपने मिशन को आगे बढ़ाने में मुझे सबसे अधिक मदद चौधरी गोवर्धनसिंह खरेटावाले से मिली। आपकी फूफी रानी गुमान कौर महाराजा बलवंत सिंह को ब्याही थी। इससे आप राज्य के पुराने रिश्तेदार हैं। आपके पिता चौधरी गोविंद सिंह राज्य में अच्छी सर्विस में थे। आप भी नायाब तहसीलदार रह चुके हैं। वाटराशाही के आप शिकार बने तबसे राज्य सेवा से अलग रहे। आपका खानदान सरदार खानदान रहा है। ग्वालियर, अलवर आदि में बड़े-बड़े घरों में रिश्तेदारी है। राजा साहब पिछोर के खानदान में आपकी बहन ब्याही गई थी। जिनके सुपुत्र राजाजी ठाकुर निरंजन सिंह हैं। निरंजन सिंह एक योग्य पुरुष हैं। उन्होने राज सेवा में मुंशिफ के पद से प्रवेश किया फिर रेवेन्यू कमिशनर भी रहे। निहायत संजीदा और गंभी व्यक्ति हैं। इस समय आप धौलपुर में प्रांतीय और राष्ट्रीय सर्विस के लिए जिस योग्यता की जरूरत होती है वे आपमें हैं।
