JODH SIṄGH CHASHMĀVĀLĀ (d. 1859) belonged, like his father Gajjā Siṅgh, to the Sikh misl or chiefship of the Kanhaiyās. Later he joined service under Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh. In 1822, he was sent to Attock where he held charge of the fort for four years. He was then recalled to Lahore and granted a jāgīr in Shakargaṛh tahsīl of Gurdāspur district, with a third share in the village of Chashmā, subject to the service of 35 horse. When Hīrā Siṅgh Ḍogrā became minister, Jodh Siṅgh was posted to his own regiment, the Ḍerā Khās. Although an old man, he took part with his contingent in the first Anglo-Sikh war of 1845-46. After the cessation of hostilities, he retired to his estate at Chashmā. He died in 1859.
