There are records of three marriages by Sudarshan Shah in Tehri Court Records (Dabral). His queens were – Sirmaur Ji, Bhorpali Ji and Jamavali Ji. Sudarshan Shah married with Jamavali ji in 1818.
Sudarshan Shah got his kingdom back in 1815. When he came to Tehri with order of east India Company the record states his queens as – Sirmaur Ji and Bamori Ji. It seems Bamori ji was Bhorpali ji. Sirmaur Ji was daughter of Karm Prakash the Chieftain of Sirmaur. Bamora ji was the daughter of Karam Chand the chieftain of Bambu (Bhambhor). Karmprakash was also displaced by Gurkha.
Wisely Spending by Sudarshan Shah
There was no income source for Sudarshan Shah in Kankhal. His in laws also could not help him. Sudarshan Shah had to practice for a miser spender. He also opened a shop in Kankhal by appointing a known person the charge of the shop (Sirmaur Gazetteer).
Maularam also described Sudarshan Shah opening a grain shop in Tehri.
Contact with Harsh Dev Joshi
Harsh Dev Joshi was spending a helpless life in Kankhal even before Pradyuman Shah reached to Kankhal in 1803. His son Jaynarayan was in prison of h Nepal Court. After the death of Pradyuman Shah, Harsh Dev Joshi lost his friend.
Harsh dev joshi started spending life of a sage in Kankhal at the age of 60. He travelled to Lahore and Kangara and met Lord Leke and other Company officials. They only offered him consolations. He was witnessing the sale of Garhwali slaves by Gurkha in Kankhal and it was because his misconducts and ambitions that Kumaon and Garhwal lost the freedom. It was said that Harsh dev Joshi used to write letters to relatives of Garhwali slaves on behalf of slaves.
