* The family history includes three elder sons named 'Abdu'l Nabi, Mahmud Ikhlas and 'Abdu'l Aziz. The first two are obvious confusions with an uncle and cousin, whose actual ancestry from contemporary Mughal sources I give elsewhere. The third son, given as an officer of Sultan Ibrahim Adil Shah II (1580-1626). The reign dates for that sovereign suggest that 'Abdu'l Aziz may be equally erroneous. Nevertheless, it is possible that three elder sons with these names actually existed, but misidentified with their more illustrious forebears.
