JODH SIṄGH (d. 1874), a colonel in the army of Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh and the son of Jai Siṅgh, was a descendant of the Mān family of Mughal Chakk. This family originated from one Laddhā, who, having shifted from Delhi, laid the foundation of a small village of Mān in the suburbs of Gujrāṅwālā where he had settled. He was appointed headman of twenty-two villages around it which rank lasted long with the family. Jodh Siṅgh's grandfather, Sarjā Siṅgh, was an ally of Chaṛhat Siṅgh Sukkarchakkīā. The Mān family achieved great honour and influence under Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh and almost twenty-two members of it held trustworthy military posts. During the Anglo-Sikh war of 1848-49, Jodh Siṅgh fought against the British, but before long came back to Lahore. Jāgīrs of this branch of the family were confiscated by the British government after the Punjab was annexed. Jodh Siṅgh was, however, granted a pension of rupees seven hundred and twenty. He died in 1874.
