Query on the Genealogy of the Maharaja Lambor of Perak

Recently, I received a comment by Sdr Azizul Jabbar about his query on the genealogy of the Maharaja Lambor of Perak. Indeed, the Maharaja Lambor is one of the hereditary minor chiefs of Perak. Unfortunately, not much has been written either by myself on this blog or even by other historical scholars about this topic.


But, to our consolation, I happen to possess a copy of the manuscript pertaining the Maharaja Lambor of Perak and its genealogical connections with other Perak aristocratic family branches. The original manuscript is kept at SOAS with the reference number 40332 – Misc. Paper. Sdr Azizul Jabbar asked me about the names of the parents of one Toh Andak Majiwa in the family tree. Although I have the answer, I think it is appropriate to write a short article with supporting images from the manuscript.


The answer is I don’t know the name of the parents of this Toh Andak Majiwa as in the manuscript, there were no names written on the diagram illustrating the parent of this Toh Andak Majiwa.


Below is the image:

The Manuscript MS 40332 SOAS, London - diagram shows the genealogy of Maharaja Lambor and Seri Nara Diraja. No names written for the parent of Toh Andak Majiwa

I hope this posting is helpful to answer Sdr Azizul Jabbar’s queries.
