Machiraju Family Tree. Machiraju Family. MACHIRAJU FAMILY. The origin of Niyogi community is descending from their Bramhin ancestors originally from Northern as well as North Western geographical region of present day India.
In the later centuries they migrated to various parts of the country and the world in pursuit of better and Green pastures. They belong to the brahma-kshatriya group who took secular duties like the military and administration
Another Theory is
Some part of Krishna Dist,Guntur Dist and the surrounding areas was called as "AAru vela naadu".As these people belong to that area,they were called so as Aruvela Niyogis.
(Recently we learnt that a village habitat by name Machirajukunta exists in Pedaravidu mandal of Prakasam district. We have to explore this for more details.)
Another theory asserts that 6000 Brahmins left drought- and famine-stricken regions of present-day Maharashtra and traveled to coastal and riverine regions of Andhra.
These Brahmin settlers and their descendants, who adopted secular vocations, were termed the 6000 (or Aruvela) Niyogi. Many surnames among Maharashtra Brahmins and Aruvela Niyogis are common (or similar): this fact is considered by many to support for this theory of migration.
According to Narasimha Shastry Nori, 6000 Brahmins were appointed as village heads and accountants and training imparted to them, way back in 13th or 14th century AD
Among Aruvela Niyogis, Machiraju is the biggest group having four Gothrams.
