Mutholath Family has its origin at Cherpunkal, a beautiful village near Pala in Kottayam District in Kerala State, India. The family members belong to the Catholic Archdiocese of Kottayam and are members of Knanaya Catholic Community. We are proud of our faith, community, and nationality. Generally the members of Mutholath family are hard working and God loving people who like to keep up Christian morals and values.
Origin of Mutholath Family
Mutholath family, along with many other present families in Cherpunkal, is a branch of Chenthottathil family. No family is currently using Chenthottathil as a family name because all the branches of Chenthottathil family were using the name of the property in which they built houses as their family name.
Mr. Thomman Chenthottathil had two sons. His elder son Kuriakko built house in the eastern portion of Varikattu property and the other son Kurian built house in the western portion of the same property. Thus those two families were known as Kizhakke-varikattu (Kizhak in Malayalam language means estern) and Padinjare-varikattu (Padinjar in Malayalam means western).
Mr. Kurian Padinjare (western) varikattu had four sons who lived in the following properties: Mutholath, Padinjare-varikattu, Moozhayil, and Neduvelil.
The son of Kurian Padinjare varikattu who lived in Mutholath property was Kuriakko. He is the head of the Mutholath branch. He had two sons and four daughters. His elder son Kurian lived in Kulappurath property and the other son Chacko lived in Mutholath property.
This family website centralizes on Mr. Chacko Mutholath and his descendents. Chacko Mutholath married Anna from Padikkamyalil family in Maridom.

The decision to make this website and multimedia presentation was made in Chicago on July 1, 2001.
The goal of this project is to document the family tree and family history so that the coming generation of the Mutholath family might understand the family better and keep up our traditional values.
We request the cooperation of the members of Mutholath family and related people to contribute more historical articles, photographs etc. for the betterment of this project.
