roots of Ningileri Tharavad can be traced to Kuttyadi, the southern
border area of the famous Kottayam Kingdom. Situated 2 km west of
Kuttyadi is a place called Narikkot chal, which was the locale of the
famous Akkilat Tharavad during 1800. When the population of men started
increasing immensely in this Tharavad they adopted one girl from
Poothedath Tharavad of Vellamunda, Wyanad, to keep the lineage going on
the women’s side.
Chinnan Nambiar was a famous and courageous warlord. He married
Kunhimakkam Amma of Perat Tharavad, another well-known family in
Kuttyadi. They had three children - one boy and two girls. Kunhimakkam
Amma’s brother was Kunhikutty Nambiar.
