About the Kizhakke Covilakam surname

Kizhakke Covilakam, one of the three branches of Zamorin’s family (referred also as Nedi yiruppu Swarupam), gained its present identity as Kottakkal Kizhakke Covilakam, towards the end of Eighteenth Century. Members of this branch, having left their original base at Calicut, had to temporarily settle in Ennakkat Palace in Travancore under the hospitality of Karthika Thirunal Rama Varma, the then Maharaja of Travancore, during Tippu’s invasion of Malabar. The family returned to Malabar and settled at Kottakkal in the year 1800A.D. The first female member of the family to come and settle at Kottakkal Kizhakke Covilakam was Manorama Thampuratty (1760-1828 A.D.) along with her children, two sons and three daughters. She was a great scholar and her successors too were initiators of educational and cultural development. Dr. K.C.K. E. Raja hails from this family.>* # >
