KARAM SIṄGH MĀN, an associate of the Bhaṅgī misl, belonged to the village of Mānāṅvālā in Amritsar district, and was collateral of the Mān sardārs of Mughal Chakk in Gujrāṅwālā district. Karam Siṅgh's father Tārā Siṅgh with a group of horsemen, most of whom belonged to his own caste, captured a number of villages in Amritsar district about the middle of the eighteenth century. Karam Siṅgh joined the Bhaṅgī chiefship, and obtained jāgīrs in Lahore, Siālkoṭ and Amritsar districts. He reconstructed his ancestral village, Mānaṅvālā. Karam Siṅgh's two sons, Rām Siṅgh and Shām Siṅgh, succeeded him but they severed their connections with the Bhaṅgī misl about the year 1780 and joined Mahāṅ Siṅgh Sukkarchakkīā. His granddaughter Sadā Kaur, however, married a prominent Bhaṅgī chief, Sobhā Siṅgh, the founder of Qilā Sobhā Siṅgh in Siālkoṭ district.
