- The Rajas of Malabar including the Walluvanad Raja went to Travancore and continued the resistance to Mysore’s forces with the help of the Travancore king.
- By 1790 – The British managed to defeat Tippu Sultan and finally established their rule over Malabar. The Mysore kings’ efforts to establish their rule over Malabar had only weakened Malabar’s defenses and made the job of the British easier.
- The next Samoothiri king and Kochi Raja declared themselves as subordinates to the British.
- 1792 – Vellaattiri had to enter into an agreement with the British but retained some of his original territory. Thus the Walluvanad Raja who once occupied a pre-eminent place among the Rajas of Malabar and who did not submit to the power of Samoothiri for more than 400 years, despite being lost countless number of times, and fought to the last for keeping his ancient heritage, was at last degraded into the position of a petty feudal chief by the British.
- 1793 to 1797 – The first war of Pazhassi Raja with the British. Keralavarma Pazhassi Raja was of the Kottayam royal family, who ruled Wayanad. The British tried to arrest the king in his palace, but Pazhassi Raja escaped to Wayanad hills and continued his fight. Many Englishmen died. The British were forced to withdraw their armies from Wayanad. However they were attacked again while retreating, with the result of further casualties. They finally accepted the demands by the king and a truce was obtained.
- 1800 to 1805 – Pazhassi Raja revolted against the policies of the British again. The king opposed all efforts by the British to rule Wayanad. By the tactics of guerilla warfare, the British were made to suffer innumerable hardships. Sir Arthur Wellesley was appointed to capture the Raja. The British won critical battles by a combination of treachery, tact and brute force. Finally the revolt was suppressed and Pazhassi Raja was killed in battle.
- British rule in Malabar continued till 1947.
