The earliest recorded history of the Dasmahapatra family dates back to mid 17th Century from Athgarh region of Odisha. However, official records suggest that one of the earliest patriachs of the family Chowdhury Murari Mohan Dasmohapatra was endowed with the Territory Grant of Patashpur Pargana by the Mughal Court under Emperor Aurangzeb in 1779 AD. Soon, he built this Panchetgarh Zamindar House in the village of Panchetgarh and started his official order.
