The ancestors of Acharju(Founder) of Beri were from a place called 'Kanhaiya' in Gwalior State. After getting married to the daughter of Jagatraj(Son of Chattrasal) Acharju was given, as dowry, a jagir consisting of the villages Umri, Dadri and Chilli.

At the time Ali Bahadur annexed Beri and granted it Sanad it still consisted of these 3 villages. However the size was reduced when the Britishers took away Chilli and Dadri villages at the time of the treaty with Rao Govindrao.

Rao Vishwanath helped the Britishers during mutiny in 1857 as a result of which a particular tax namely Gaddinashini ka Nazrana was pardoned by the Britishers.
