Kiriyathil is the name of highest sub caste of the Nair community of Kerala. They are found confined to the regions of Malabar and Cochin alone and are rarely seen in Travancore where the next caste down, Illathu Nairs, take predominance. The Kiriyathil Nairs were the highest class of Nairs. They enjoyed special privileges such as the right to partake food with Brahmins, to cook for Brahmins etc. These were exceptionally high privileges. As mentioned earlier, the Kiriyathil Nairs are found mostly only in Malabar and Cochin and rarely in Travancore.

Malayalam Lineage system is called illam.Nair (Malayalam: ??????, pronounced [na?jar]) is the name of a Hindu[1] Kshatriya upper caste community from the South Indian state of Kerala. The Nairs were a martial nobility and figured prominently in the history of Kerala. Before the British conquest in 1792, the Kerala region contained small, feudal kingdoms, in each of which the royal and noble lineages, the militia, and most land managers were drawn from the Nairs and related castes.[2] Nairs were prominent in politics, government service, medicine, education, and law.[3] Nairs are the savarna hindus who constituted the warriors, landed gentry and yeoman of Kerala. Nayars are the largest and most important section of the society of Kerala. They were the lords of the country and guardian of public welfare.

The Nayanars were Samanthans and Naduvazhi (chiefs of fiefdoms and aristocracy) and Jenmimar (landed gentry)[1].

[edit] Nambiar Nayanars E. K. Nayanar, of the Erambala clan, was a chief minister of Kerala, and a prominent leader of the CPI(M).

The three noted families of Erambala, Varikkara and Vengayil were originally Nambiars but received the Nayanar Sthanaperu (title name) from authorities such as the Chirakkal Raja and the Brahmin heads of temples.

[edit] Edathil Nayanars (Kshatriya Nayanars)

The Edathil Nayanars are of Samanthan or Samanta Kshatriya status. They are the first Nayanars of north Malabar whom did not receive the title as honorific by the raja like the Nambiar Nayanars. Some of these tharavads include Samanthan Kenothedam, Samanthan Karakkadedam, Samanthan Chittothedam and Samanthan Kaitheriedam. These Nayanar tharavads use the word Edam, which means Kottaram or palace, with their tharavadu or family name. These clans are Kshatriyas who once enjoyed very high position in the royal darbar of Chirakkal. During olden days, Nambiar men were not allowed to marry ladies belonging to these four Nayanar tharavads, though this has changed. Women of this section of Nayanars married Namboothiris or into the royal family of Chirakkal. Men belonging to these four families were addressed with a honorary suffix of Vanavar along with their family names.
