PREDECESSORS and SHORT HISTORY: Subjest to the Rulers of Bijapur and Golconda and then the territory of the old family estate of Anegundi was early in the eighteenth century held by the Rayas from the Mogul emperor of Delhi as a tributary state. In 1749 it was seized by the Mahrattas, and in 1775 it was reduced by Haidar Ali of Mysore, but continued to exist as a tributary quasi-independent state till the time of Tipu (Tippoo Sultan). Tipu, who never suffered from an excess of compunction or compassion when his own interests were at stake, annexed the estate bodily to his dominions in 1786. Thirteen years later he was killed at Seringapatam, and in the settlement that followed, the little territory was made over to the Nizam of Hyderabad, the English Government retaining all lands on their side of the Tungabhadra. Partly in compensation for this loss of land, the Government has till very recently paid an annual pension to the head of the Anegundi family. This was abolished in 1889 as no legal heir could be determined. In 1902 the allowance was set at 6,000Rs. Predecessors and Rulers were....
