THE SIR NAME AND TITLE

CHAUDHRY pronounced (CHAUDREEY) Historically, this term literally means “a holder of four or owner of the fourth part.” It is a title indicating the ownership of ancestral land found in the South Asia area. It is often taken as a surname. It does not indicate a tribe, but rather a position held. 

In some traditions the term is said to have been derived from a title for a military commander. This military commander would control four different fighting forces, namely the navy, cavalry, infantry and elephant corps. The earliest reference to Chaudhry is from the 15th Century.
