The History of Sheikh Ahmad Quomi Family


Sheikh Ahmads Family


Chao Phraya Bowonratchanayok (Sheikh Ahmad) was the first person in the first generation of Sheikh Ahmad family in Thailand. He had two sons and one daughter.Their names were Taan Chuen, Taan Chom and Taan Chee (Taan (ҹ) is a Thai word used in front of someones name to show respect and admiration). Taan Chuen innitailly received the tiltle of Phraya Boworn Chetthapakdee in the reign of King Songtham. Later, he was promoted to Chao Phraya Aphairacha, and held the rank of Samuhanayok (Minister of Interior) in the reign of King Prasat Thong.


Taan Chuen or Chao Phraya Aphairacha, the second generation of Sheikh Ahmad family, had two children from his first wife (whose name was not mentioned). The first one was Luan. Afterwards, she became one of King Prasat Thongs ladies of the court, and had one daughter. Her name was Princess Saeng Chan. The second one was a boy named Somboon, and later received the title of Chamuen Chongphakdee, in charge of the Department of Palace Affairs, in the reign of King Narai. Subsequently, the king promoted him to the rank of Phraya Bamroe Phakdee, the deputy director of the Department of Palace Affairs.
Mahamad Sa-id, Chao Phraya Bowonratchanayoks (Sheikh Ahmad) younger brother went back to Persia, and had one son named Agamahamad who went to Ayutthaya and lived with Chao Phraya Aphairacha (Chuen), his counsin. Later, Chao Phraya Aphairacha asked King Narai to allow Taan Chee, his younger sister, to marry Agamahamad. Both of them settled down in Ayutthaya and built many houses near Wat Ammae. Ayutthaya people called the village Ban Khaek Gudeeyai. Agamahamad was promoted to the title of Phraya Sri Nawarat in the reign of King Narai.


When Chao Phraya Aphairacha (Chuen) passed away, his son, Phraya Bamroe Phakdee (Somboon) was 40 years old, and King Narai promoted him to the title of Chao Phraya Chamnanphakdee Samuhanayok (Minister of Interior) in place of his father.


Chao Phraya Chamnanphakdee, the third generation of Sheikh Ahmad family, had two sons: Chai and Chit. Both of them were presented to the King as royal pages. Phraya Sri Nawarat and Taan Chee also had two sons: Yee and Kaew. Both of them were also presented to the King as royal pages. Both of them had good competence. Yee became Phra Anurak Racha, a brave soldier and having good skills in fighting. He used to go to war with King Pate Racha when the King moved his troops to war in Chieng Mai, and also participated with Phraya Kosathibodees (Leks) troop. Later, King Narai promoted Phra Anurak Racha to the title of Chao Phraya Srisai Hannarong, the governor of Tanaosri, the fronted city, and promoted Luang Sri-yod, Phra Anurak Racha s younger brother, to the title of Phraya Chula Ratchamontree, Chaokrom Tha-kwa (The former Thai Miniter of Foreign Affairs).


In the reign of King Pate Racha, Chao Phrya Chamnanphakdee had two sons: Taan Chai and Taan Chit. Taan Chai did not work for the government, but Taan Chit, the younger brother, became familiar with Khun Luang Sorasak, the crown prince at that time. Therefore the crown prince promoted Taan Chit to the title of Phra Phom Surin, head of the Department of Police of the front palace, but Khun Luang Sorasak passed away before he succeeded to the throne.
In the reign of King Boromakot, he had promoted many of his foremost men to the ranks of Chao Phraya, Phraya, Phra, and etc. according to the ranks of their merits. He also gave the men some properties. Among these men, there was Taan Chai, Chao Phraya Chamnansaks (Somboon) eldest son who was promoted to the title of Phraya Petphichai, the Deputy Director of Krom Lom Phra Ratchawang Luang (The old Ministry of Defense). He also took responsibility on the Department of Cham (An ancient people in the central coastal part of Vietnam) and Japanese volunteers.


Regarding Chao Phraya Srisai Hannarongs (Yee), the governor of Tanaosri, two sons: Taan Sri and Taan Son, King Boromakot promoted Taan Sri, the older brother, to the title of Phraya Amaren, Deputy Director of the Department of the Cham Volunteers. The King promoted Taan Son, the younger brother, to the title of Luang Sriyod, the head of Krom Tha Kwa (The former Ministry of Foreign Affairs). Afterwards, Phraya Srinawarat (Agahamad), Chao Phraya Srisai Hannarongs father, became old and died in the age of 85. The King was graciously pleased to promoted Luang Sriyod (Son) to the rank of Phraya Chula Ratchamontree, the head of Krom Tha Kwa. Both Phraya Amaren (si) and Phraya Chula Ratchamontree (Son) did not have any sons or daughters.
Phraya Petphichai (Chai), the fourth generation of Sheikh Ahmad family, married Taan Chaeng, Chao Phraya Rattana Thibets (Head of the old ministry of defense) daughter. They had one daughter and two sons. The daughter was Kaew, and the sons were Shen and Sen. He also had a son with the other wife and his name was Noo.


A part of Ayutthaya chronicle indicated that On the tenth day of wanning phase of the moon in the eight month, the King was seriously ill. He hiccoughed, and was better at eleven oclock. When the twelfth month came, the King went to pay homage to Buddhas footprint at Wat Phra Buddha Bart. There was a procedure to welcome the King at Tha Chao Sanook Pavilion. The King travelled to stay at a hot spring called Bo Soke by a royal palanquin. In the evening, he reached a place called Tai Phikul. The king stayed to celebrate the Buddha footprint for seven days, after that he went back to Ayutthaya.


With regard to the Kings going to pay homage to the Buddhas footprint, the kings followers were all delighted that he was recovered from his illness. Every one wanted to accompany him. On the contrary, there was not the name of Phraya Petphichai in the list of officials accompanying the King. Therefore Phraya Petphichai asked the King to go with the royal group. The King commented that Phraya Petphichai was a khaek (A foreigner who holds the beliefs in Islam), so he should not have gone to pay homage to Phra Buddha Bart which was in the beliefs of Buddhists. But if he could refrain from holding Islam, and changed to hold Buddhism like Thai people, he would allow him to join the royal group. Phraya Petphichai agreed to do according to the Kings wish. Then the King allowed him to join the group. When they reached Wat Phra Buddha Bart, Phraya Petphichai received Buddhist religious precepts, and made an affirmation to be a Buddhist in presence of the Supreme Patriach and in front of the King. As a result, some members of Sheikh Ahmad family have become Buddhists. After going back to Ayutthaya, King Boromakot promoted Phraya Petphichai to the rank of Chao Phraya Petphichai, and had a duty the same rank as a minister of ther present days


Taan Kaew, Chao Phraya Petphichais daughter, married Chao Phraya Mahasena (in the rank of the old minister of defence) whose house was on a canal called Klong Glaeb; consequently, local people called him Chao Phraya Galahom Klong Glaeb. Chao Phraya Mahasena and Taan Kaew had only one daughter, Cham. He also had two sons from other wives named Plee and Khum.


Taan Chane, the second son of Chao Phraya Petphichai (Chai), was promoted to Phraya Wichitnarong, head of the Department called Khenthong, and also the Department of Cham Volunteers.


Taan Sen, the third son of Chao Phraya Petphichai, worked for the government under Prince Narathibet (Chaofah Thamathibet), Kromakhun Senaphithak, the royal viceroy in the title of Krom Phraratchawang Boworn Sathanmongkhol. The prince promoted Taan Sen to the title of Phraya Sa-ne-ha Phuthorn, head of the royal pages of the front palace. Later, when Kromakhun Senaphithak was royally sentenced to death, King Boromakot was pleased to promote Prince Uthumporn or Kromakhun Pornphinit to the rank of the royal viceroy, and promoted Phraya Sa-ne-ha Phuthorn (Sen) to the title of Phraya Chasaenyakorn, head of the Department of Interior of the front palace.


Phraya Chasaenyakorn (Sen), the fifth generation of Sheikh Ahmad family, married Taan Phuangkaew, Chao Phraya Thamathikorns (Khun Thong) daughter. They had three daughters: Pao, Pan, Thongdee, and one son named Boonma. Phraya Chasaenyakorn also had a son from Taan Boonsri, a wife given to him by Kromakhun Senaphithak, the former viceroy. The sons name was Boonnak.


Kromakhun Pornphinit, the Royal Viceroy, promoted Boonma to the title of Luang Mahachaiphak, head of the royal paged guards of the front palace, and promoted Boonnak to the title of Nai Chalongnayanat, a royal page called Mahadlek Humpaer of the palace.


King Boromakot passed away in 1758, and Kromakhun Pornphinit succeeded to the throne in the name King Uthumporn (Phrachao Uthumporn in the Thai name). He was pleased to promote Phraya Chasaenyakorn (Sen), his old royal servant to the title of Chao Phraya Mahasena in responsibility of Samuha Phragalahom (The minister of defence) of the southern region. Because Chao Phraya Mahasenas residence was near Wat Sam Wihan, people called him Chaokhun Galahom Wat Sam Wihan (The minister of Wat Sam Wihan).


Later, King Uthumporn addicated, and gave the throne to Prince Ekkathat or Kromakhun Anurakmontri, his older brother in 1759. He went out of the palace and was ordained as a Buddhist monk. Since then, he was called Khunluang Hawat (The royal person who went to a wat or temple). Prince Ekkathat, Kromakhun Anurakmontri, succeeded to the throne in the name Somdet Phramahakasat Boworn sucharit Thosaphittham Tharetchethaloka Nayok Udom Boromanatbophit, but for short, people called him Phrachao Ekkathat (King Ekkathat).


In this reign, Phraya Wichitnarong (Shen), the second son of Ckao Phraya Petphichai (Chai) and the older brother of Chao Phraya Mahasena (Sen), was promoted to the title of Phraya Chula Ratchamontri. He was appointed to take responsibility of both Kromtha Glang (The middle office of foreign affairs) and Krom Asa Cham (The department of Cham volunteers). He was also honored to the same rank as Chao Phraya Phrakhrang (The Minister of Treasury), but he was not assigned to the title of Chao Phraya. Additionally, Taan noo, the fourth son of Chao Phraya Petphichai (Chai), was promoted to the title of Chamuen Waiworanat, head of the royal pages. He married Lamom, Chao Phraya Chakkri Longkhongs daughter. They settled down at Bang Kraja near Wat Phanan Choeng, and had many daughters and sons.


When Krung Si Ayutthaya was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767, members of Sheikh Ahmad family were dissipated from each other like the other families. Some were dead, and some were captured as prisoners of war in Burma. Some of them tried to run away from the enemies.


Therefore, there were many lineagues of the sixth generation of Sheikh Ahmad family. Each lineage originated from Chao Phraya Petphichai (Chai). The next article will mention only the lineague that led to Taan Boonnak, the first person of Boonnak family and some of his sisters and brothers.


Luang Maha Chaiphak (Boonma), the fourth son of Chao Phraya Mahasena (Sen) who was the third son of Chao Phraya Petphichai (Chai), was separated from his family when Ayutthaya was destroyed. He ran away and lived in Phetchabun. For the three sisters of Luang Maha chaiphak: Pao, Pan and Thongdee and also Luang Maha Chaiphaks wives and sons were forced to go to Burma. When the reign of King Taksin came, Luang Maha Chaiphak presented himself and worked for the King. He was promoted to the title of Phra Pholamuang Phetchabun. Phra Pholamuang Phetchabun took the chance to present Kornkaew, his counsin who was a son of Phraya Chula Ratchamontri (Chen), his uncle, to work for the Kings government. Kornkaew was promoted to the title of Luang Sri Nawarat.
With regard to Nai Chalong Naiyanat (Boonnak), the fifth son of Chao Phraya Mahasena (Sen)

, he married Taan Lim, Phraya Thibetbodees (head of the royal pages) daughter. They had one daughter named Tanee. When Ayutthaya was nearly defeated, Nai Chalong Naiyanat took his wife, his daughter and kornkaew, his counsin, to Ratchaburi to live with Luang Yokabat of Ratchaburi (His name was Thong Duang. Later, he became king in honor of his victory in the name King Buddha Yodfah, the first king of Rattanakosin period).


In Thonburi period, many of Nai Chalong Naiyanats (Boonnak) friends and relatives gave themselves in allegiance to the King of Thonburi, including Luang Yokabat of Ratchaburi (Thong Duang) who was persuaded by Phra Maha Montri (Boonma), his brother, to work for the King. In contrast, Nai Chalong Naiyanat (Boonnak) did not work for the government, and told his relatives and friends not to mention his name to king Taksin because both of them had had dissension since their young age.


It was told in the past that in the reign of King Boromakot, there were three boys. The first one was Sin, a Chinese (in Taehaihong family) origin who Chao Phraya Chakkri had adopted as his son. The next one was Thong Duang, Luang Phinitaksorns (Thong Dee who worked as a chief clerk of the Department of Interior) son, and the last one was Boonnak, Phraya Chasaenyakorns Son. The three boys were close friends. Later, they were ordained as novices at Wat Sam Wihan. Once, Boonnak was invited to give a sermon about the past life of Buddha in a sermon hall. While he was giving a sermon, Sin secretly removed some steps out of the stairs of the seat of sermon. When Boonnak finished giving the sermon, he stepped down from the seat without knowing that the stairs did not have some steps. He fell down from the seat, and was hurt and very embarrassed.


After being out of ordaining, Chao Phraya Chakkri gave Sin in allegiance to King Boromakot. Sin worked as a royal page. However, Thong Duang and Boonnak were given in allegiance as royal pages to the viceroy at the front palace. Although they were separated to work at different places, all of them still went for pleasure together. One day, the three friends lied down and talked to each other in front of Chao Phraya chakkris house. Sin who had bia (long hair woven in braids) fell asleep. Boonnak had reached a condition required. He quietly tied Sins hair in braids to the floor made of bamboo. Then he made a loud noise; Sin woke up in frightening. He got up and was jerked sharply because his hair was sticked to the floor. Many people around there laughed at Sin. That situation had made them having dissension to each other. Therefore, When Sin became King, and Thong Duang became Chao Phraya Chakkri, Boonnak did not dare to present himself and worked for King Taksin because of that case.


When Luang Yokkrabat of Ratchaburi (Thong Duang) worked for the King of Thon buri, the King was pleased to promote him to the title of Phra Ratchawarin, and later Chao Phraya Chakkri. Boonma, Thong Duangs brother, was promoted to Chao Phraya Surasri. For Nai Chalongnaiyanat, he had worked for Chao Phraya Chakkri as a follower carrying a golden container of mark (betel, areca and red lime used for chewing by former Thai people) and followed Chao Phraya Surasri to every place. But Nai Chalongnaiyanat was afraid that King Taksin would see and know about his behaviors, he stopped following Chao Phraya Chakkri. He only stayed away in doing business for Chao Phraya Chakkri.


Later, Nai Chalongnaiyanat persuaded Taan Lim, his wife, to dig out some property that his father buried in order to hide it from the Burmese in Ayutthaya. After finding the property and digging it out, they travelled back to Bangkok by boat along the river. On the way, passing Nonthaburi at the beginning of Khlong Bangyai, the property was robbed; Nai Chalongnaiyanats wife and some servants were killed. Nai Chalongnaiyanat and some of his servants had to jump into the river and ran away from the robbers, and he lost all the property.


Taan Phuying Nak (Lady Nak), Chao Phraya Chakkris wife, heard about the case. She felt a pity on Nai Chalongnaiyanat. As a result, she gave Taan Nuan, her younger sister, to marry Nai Chalongnaiyanat. Consequently, Nai Chalongnaiyanat (Boonnak) became Chao Phraya Chakkris and Lady Naks brother in law, apart from a friend and a follower.


When Krung Rattanakosin (Bangkok) became the capital in 1782, King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke got coronation in honor of his victory. He promoted some members of his royal family to higher ranks, for example, Chao Phraya Surasri to Krom Phra Ratchawang Bowon Sathanmongkhon. The King also promoted many officlals to the ranks of ministers, and heads of many departments. Five members of Sheikh Ahmad family were promoted in the reign of the first king of Rattanakosin naming as follows:

  1. Taan Cham, Taan Phuying Kaew Mahasenas and Chao Phraya Galahom Khlong Glaebs daughter, who had different mother with Chao Phraya Mahasena (Plee), became Thao Worachan.
  2. Luang Sri Nawarat (Kornkaew) Phraya Chula Ratchamontris (Chen) son became Phraya Chula Ratchamontri in place of his father.
  3. Phra Pholamuang Petchabun (Boonma), Chao Phraya Maha Senas (Sen) son became Phraya Tagerng (Later becoming Chao Phraya Mahasena in King Buddha Lerdla Napalais reign).
