Chaudhary

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chaudhary (or Choudhary; also: Chaudhuri, Choudhuary, Chowdhury) is a common surname in South Asia, originally derived from a South Asian hereditary title. "Chowdhury" is a term adapted from the Sanskrit word caturdhara, literally "holder of four" (four denoting a measure of land). 'Chaudhary' was first bestowed by the various rulers of the Delhi Sultanate, and the custom was continued by the breakaway Bengal Sultanate. Later, the Mughals and the Nawabs conferred the same title in great numbers. Chaudharies were "local magnates" responsible for land taxes alongside an amil (revenue collector) and a karkun (accountant) in the local-level administrative units known as parganas.[1][2][3]
