There are several legends about the origins of some early Sidi settlements but so far no contemporary written record has been found to verify their early oral history or substantiate the Sidi claims of various ancestries. However, there are a few early reports by European officials and travellers and one short language study by the explorer Richard F. Burton (1851). According to one commonly accepted legend (Patel 1986), the founder of the Sidi settlement in Jambur in Gujarat is supposed to have originally come from Kano in Nigeria via the Sudan and Mecca after his Hajj pilgrimage. This leader was a wealthy merchant by the name of Bawa/Baba Ghor who first settled in the Rajpipla Hills near Bharuch and Khambat where he developed mining and trade in agate, the precious stone known as akik in India.(17) A certain variety of agate beads are known as Baba Ghori, and another maroon cornelian stone is named after his sister and successor Mai Mariyam, also known as Mai Misra/Mishra.(18)
(18) According to one tradition in the Dongri district of Mumbai, Mai Misra is called so because she came to India via ‘Misre’ or ‘Misar’ (Egypt).FOTO(derecha):Ancient artifact (apprx 2nd millenium B.C.) found in India shows a woman with Negroid features.
