Saugor and Nerbudda Territories


Saugor and Nerbudda Territories

The Saugor and Nerbudda Territories was a region of British India, located in central part of present-day Madhya Pradesh state in central India. It includes the present-day districts of Sagar (Saugor), Damoh, Jabalpur, and Narsinghpur.

The Saugor and Nerbudda Territories were captured from the Marathas at the conclusion of the Third Anglo-Maratha War in 1818. Saugor was the seat of a Maratha governor, and the northern portion of the territory was ceded by the Maratha Peshwa, the southern portion, which included Jabalpur and the upper Narmada River valley, was ceded by the Bhonsle maharaja of Nagpur. The Saugor and Nerbudda Territories were attached to the North-Western Provinces, which included the British Dominions in the southern portion of present-day Uttar Pradesh state. In 1861 the Saugor and Nerbudda Territories were combined with Nagpur Province, which the British had annexed in 1853, to form the Central Provinces.
