Leading Families Of Nagpur
Naik Family

The Naik family of Umrer are Jambu Brahmans, the founder of the family having migrated from Gujarat and settled in Chimur about two centuries ago. He and his descendants lent grain on the Warpatta or Sawai system and the family are known as Warkari in commercial circles. His grandson got the title of Naik as being the most prominent man in the village, and the family have adopted it as a surname. He was made a collector of revenue for a small area under the Marathas, and had the right to receive a rupee oar cocoanut for every marriage or widow-marriage which was celebrated within his jurisdiction. The family now consists of three branches represented by Narayan Shridhar Naik and Janardhan Damodar Naik of Umrer and Rajeshwar Naik of Chimur. They have some landed property and a money lending business. Ganpat Rao Deshmukh of Mohpa has an estate of ten villages, which has been held by his family for the last hundred years. The villages of pardi and Khairiwere bestowed by the Gond Rajas on Babaji Deshmukh before the coming of the Marathas on a quit-rent of Rs.599, and they are still held on the same. These villages were included in the Mohpa jagir, which was granted by Raghuji 111 to Nawab Hasan Ali Khan and the Deshmukhs held under him, Hasan Ali Khan became indebted to the extent of a lakh and-aquarter and the British Government paid off the debt and resumed the jagir.     The Deshmukh of Kalmeshwar is a Raput by caste, and his ancestors held a considerable estate under the Gond Raja Bakht Buland, for whom he maintained a force of horse and foot. This however was resumedat the annexation and the present representative only owns the village of Kalmeshwar. One of the leading men of the Katol tahsil is the proprietor of Yerla, kartaram Patal, a Kunbi. He owns 27 villages, of which nearly all have been acquired by his father or himself. One of his ancestors was Sardar at the Mughal Court at Delhi and obtained drum and a flag from one of the Emperors which are still in the possession of the family and are carried in procession on festival days.
