Introduction To Palathinkal Family

The kingdom of Travancore, before it was united into one unit, had several smaller kingdoms (principalities) ruled by small-time rulers. At that time, Kottayam was ruled over by Thekkumkoor Thampuran and his kingdom extended from Kaipuzha in the north to Kaippattoor in the south.

On invitation from Thekkumkoor Raja, our forefather Kurien came from Athirampuzha and settled down near old bridge (Palathinkal) at Kodimatha, Kottayam, as a merchant. Year of migration of Kurien to Kodimatha is estimated to be between 1670 and 1700 AD. In the 5th Generation from Kurian, the Palathinkal family got divided into 5 branches, namely Kalathoor, Ancheril, Palathinkal, Ullattil and Arackal.
