Upon his death, they came into the hands of Begum Samru.During this time, the southern part of the district had remained under Maratha rule.In 1803, with the fall of Delhi, Daulat Rao Scindia of the Marathas ceded the territory to the British.The city was made headquarters of the eponymous district in 1818.The cartridges were covered with paper that had to be torn off: Muslims believed the paper was greased with pig and Hindus, with cow fat.All 85 were stripped of their uniforms, imprisoned for ten years and shackled - this was a major humiliation.

The European cantonment was separated from the ‘native lines.’ Close by were Sadar Bazar and Lal Kurti Bazar, the latter named after the red uniforms worn by Company soldiers.The prominent local landmark known as the Jama Masjid, dates from this period and is said to have been built by Mahmud's vizir.Shortly after its capture the city was regained by the local Hindu Raja and part of his fortifications, built for the city’s defence, survived until recent times.The city may have derived its name from 'Mayarashtra' (Sanskrit: मयराष्ट्र), the capital of the kingdom of Mayasura, Mandodari's father and Ravana's father-in-law.This name may have mutated to Mairashtra, Mai-dant-ka-khera, Mairaath and eventually Meerut.
