About the Amin surname

In 2008, we visited our ancestral home in Vaso( now owned by another family since the family sold it). There, we were fortunate and so warmly and humbly invited into the neighbour's home who would be from the same "ghar" or "Kutumb" ( family lineage). as us.

The oldest member of their family who knew of our uncles and grandfather explained how the Amin surname came to be.

We were all PATELS many, many generation ago. During the time of Akbar Raja this title AMIN was assiigned or designated to 2 brothers - Ajubhai Patel and Ajaybhai Patel, who were Akbar's very good and trusted friends.

He desginated them with this most trusted task ,as Municipal tax collectors for him in this village. This task was called Amingiri ( keeper of wealth). Hence over time they were referred to as Ajaybhai and Ajubhai Amin by towns folk and so the surname stuck and continued from there on.

Any other version you may know......please share:)
