Genealogy of this Sabhlok family

 

Father’s side:

 

This genealogy is compiled from research conducted by my uncle, Commodore Suresh Kumar Sabhlok, Vir Chakra.

 

The Sabhloks were originally the inhabitants of Afghanistan. They lived at Jalalabad near Kabul. They migrated to Dandi, a couple of miles from Pindigheb, later to become a tehsil of Campbellpore district, now in Pakistan – during the 12th and 13th centuries.

 

Late Sultan Chand Sabhlok (c.1810-?) was an officer (Jamadar) in the army of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839). He shifted to Pindigheb from Dandi around 1840 upon being given 25 acres of well-irrigated land in Pindigheb in recognition of his distinguished service. Therefore the Sabhloks of Pindigheb were called Jamadars.
