Also known as Barh ke pura, Barhpura was a thikana of the Bhadawar State and was granted to Kunwar Raghunath Singh, the youngest son of the Bhadauria Maharaja Udot Singh of Bhadawar, who became the first Rao Bahadur of Barhpura. Originally the jagir covered a fair area of about 50 square kilometres, but during the cession of Etawah district to the British after the Anglo-Maratha war, the Rao of Barhpura at that time, Rao Padam Singh Bahadur, was expelled for open hostilty against the British government in 1803. A small portion of the property was left to his sucessor, Rao Narendra Singh Bahadur, who continued to recieve 10Rs per month as pension from the Bhadawar state. The title was recognised by the Government in 1801.
