A Revised and Enlarged Account of the Bobbili Zemindari/The Founder of The Samasthanam/IV. Rajah Rangapathi Ranga-Rao Bahadur Garu
Rajah Rangapathi Ranga-Rao Bahadur Garu.
Rajah Rangapathi Ranga-Rao was of a charitable disposition and was very religious. There was nothing noteworthy in his reign, except that he made a pilgrimage to Srirangam and other places.
His younger brother, Rajah Janardana Ranga-Rao, generally called Pedda Janar- dana Ranga-Rao, acquired the estate of Luckwarup-Cotah.
"(15). Luckwarup-Cotah, supposed formerly to have belonged to a branch of the Rungarow family, situated about ten coss west of Vizianagaram." (Fifth Report of the Select Committee, page 221, Vol. II., on the affairs of the East India Company).
At that time, and for many years afterwards, the estate of Kasimkota belonged to Chelikani Varu, relatives of Ravu Varu.
