Chapter 1. Early History of Alummoottil Tharavad.


In this chapter, I have tried to present the early history of Alummoottil (upto the first 5 generations), for which there is no documentary evidence. Here, truths and imagination are interwoven to make the history of this very old Ezhava Tharavad as realistic as possible.


Alummoottil family has a known tradition of about 400 years and at that time the family house (Tharavad) was in Kulasekharapuram, a small hamlet about 3 Kms north of the Karunagappally town in the Kollam district of Kerala State. It is said that the village derived its name Kulasekharapuram from of one of the Karanavar (chief man of the family) by name Kulasekharan.
