THE KALIGHAT TEMPLE

K. Roy in his book 'The History of Calcutta' has traced the genealogy of the vendors from Laksmi Kanta Mazumdar. Several of them were grandsons of Lakshi Kanta. The deed mentions:

"We conjointly have sold and made a true and legal Conveyance of the villages Dihi Kalikatah and Sutanuti within the juris- diction of Parganah Amirabad and village Gobindpur under the jurisdiction of Parganahs Paikan and Kalikata to the English Company with rents and un- cultivated lands and ponds and grooves and rights over fishing and wood lands and dues from resident artisans together with the lands appertain- ing thereto, bounded by the accustomed and usual Boundaries, the same being owned and possessed by us (up to this time the thing sold being in fact and in law, free from adverse rights or litigation forming a prohibition to a valid sale and transfer) in exchange for the sum of one thousand and three hundred Rupees current coin of this time including all rights and appurtenances thereof, internal or external, and the said purchase money transferred to our possession from the possession of the said purchaser and we have made over the afore said purchased thing to him and have excluded from this agreement all false claims, and we have become absolute guarantors that if by chance any person entitled to there fore said boundaries should come forward and defence thereof is incumbent upon us ,  and henceforth neither we, nor our representatives absolutely or entirely in no manner whatsoever, shall lay claim to the aforesaid boundaries nor shall the charge of litigation fall upon the English Company.
