The family is descended from Raja Phul Singh Dodia of Girnar, the thikana was originally named Lawa, but the name was changed in 1738. The origin of the estate is that once, on a pilgrimage to Gujarat, the mother of Maharana Lakha of Mewar and her party were attacked by dacoits, and Rao Siha Dodiya came to the aid of the party, he was killed in the skirmish, but two of his sons, Kalu and Dhawal, took the royal travellers to safety in the Dodiya residence, then later escorted them back to the Mewar border. Maharana Lakha later invited the two sons to Mewar, and granted them the jagir of Lawa.
