History[edit]

The town derives its name from the Sayyid clan سید, who founded it in approximately 1520. Baquari Syeds had migrated from Termez (Present day Uzbekistan) during the Sultanate era. Sikandar Lodi was the ruler of Delhi when Mir Syed Haji al Haramain al Hussaini al Termezi came to India and settled at Syed Nagli. He was Baquari Syed who drew his lineage from Imam Mohammad al Baqir A.S. Moradabad Gazetteer of 1908 suggests that a licence for a rural Bazar was given to Mir Syed Zafar al Hasan Baquiri. Although, this bazar started in 1910. A road adjacent to this bazar i.e. via chhipi muhalla, muhalla mahal sadat, to primary school is called Shahrah (Prince Road) as in 1857 Prince Mirza Mughal and General Bakht Khan had passed through it and welcomed by the local zamindar Mir Syed Ghalib Ali Baquiri. Members of Syed Clan are associated to Baqri Syeds of Hyderabad through Syed Ashiq Ali Baqri and Syed Amjad Ali Baqri, who had migrated to join the services of Golkonda Kingdom. Baqri Syeds of Nematpur Ikrotia, Ujhari Sadat and Mandhan also belong to the same clan.
