The ancestors of the family were possibly descended from the Parmars of Ujjain and were originally rulers of a much larger province through their capital at the fort of Aakhrani, located in the Saat Pura mountain range on the Maharashtra-MP border. They were driven from there, possibly by the Maratha invaders, and made their way to Paratappur where they succeeded by adoption.
