History of Kanpur
Believed to be founded by king Hindu Singh of the erstwhile state of Sachendi, Kanpur was originally known as ‘Kanhpur’. Upto the 1st half of the 18th century Kanpur continued to survive as an insignificant village. In May 1765, Shuja-ud-daula, the Nawab Wazir of Awadh, was defeated by the British near Jajmau. It was probably at this time that strategic importance of the site of Kanpur was realized by the British. European businessmen had by this time gradually started establishing themselves in Kanpur. Kanpur came under the British Rule by the treaty of 1801 with Nawab Saadat Ali Khan of Awadh. This forms a turning point in the history of Kanpur. Soon Kanpur became one of the most important military stations of British India. It was declared a district on 24th March 1803.
