The district was carved out on 26 April 2001 by separating four blocks-Kundhit, Nala, Jamtara and Narayanpur—of the erstwhile Dumka district. Earlier, it was a sub-division. In its long history it was a part of Birbhum under the Hetampur Raj and the Bardhaman Maharaja-Dhiraj.There are a few surviving former raj families in the district. Raja of Jamtara left everlasting impression on the culture and lives of the people of Jamtara and the adjoining area. The Zamindar family of Jamjuri had influence over a major portion of Kundahit and Fatehpur blocks. There are several historical sites waiting for study and exploration. The region was disturbed during the Santal Insurrection of 1854-55 under Siddhu and Kanhu. It is said[by whom?] that the insurgents moved village to village and gained sympathy. Legends are that one village headman, Gopal Mandal of Madhopur,now in Fatehpur Block, faced them with great honour, when all other villagers of the vicinity fled. He offered three muns of rice to the leaders and a night feast in the village ground. Scholar and intellectual Dr. Sharat Kumar Mandal is his grandson’s grandson. Siddhu was captured at Ghatiyari, Narayanpur, now in this district. After the insurgence, a separate Santal Pargana district was created. Prior to the formation of Bihar, it was a part of Bengal. The people of this area speak Maithili and Hindi, but Santali is the language of tribals. Bengali is also widely spoken.
