Lakhimpur

1
Lakhimpur is a city and a municipal board in Lakhimpur Kheri district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.HistoryTraditions point to the inclusion of this tract in the realm of the Lunar race of Hastinapur, and several places are associated with episodes in the Mahabharata. The early history is, however entirely unknown. The northern part was held by Rajputs in the tenth century, and tradition relates that they dispossessed the Pāsīs (a Hindu cast)and other aboriginal tribes. Muslim rule spread slowly to this remote and in hospitable tract; and it was probably not before the fourteenth century that a chain of forts was constructed along the northern frontier to prevent the incursions of the sarkār of Khairābād in the Sūbah of Oudh.The later history is merely that of the rise and decline of individual families, and is purely of local importance. When Rohilkhand was ceded to the British in 1801 part of this District was included in the cession, but it was restored to Oudh (See Awadh) after the Anglo-Nepalese War of 1814-16. On the annexation of Oudh in 1856 the west of the present area was formed into a District called Muhamdī (Now Mohmmadi) and then cast into Mallānpur, which also included part of Sitāpur.A year later Muhamdī became one of the chief center of disaffection in northern Oudh. The refugees from Shāhjahānpur reached Muhāmdi on June 2, and two days later that place was abandoned; but the whole party, with few exceptions, were shot down on the way to Sītapur, and the survivors died or were murdered later at Lucknow.
