The first member of the Tungipara Sheikh family to come to Bengal was Sheikh Awwal Darwish. He was originally from Baghdad but settled in Chittagong during the Mughal era, after he visited the region to preach Islam. He was married to a Bengali woman from Sonargaon and settled over there with his wife. His son, Sheikh Zahiruddin, married a girl from the Khandakar family of Kandirpar and settled there with his family. Many years later, he moved to Kolkata with his son Sheikh Jan Mahmud, since their wholesale business was based there. Sheikh Jan Mahmud's son, Sheikh Borhanuddin, continued to run that wholesale business and eventually shifted back to East Bengal. He married a girl from the Kazi family of Tungipara and permanently settled there. His son was Sheikh Ekramullah, who in turn had two sons: Sheikh Wasimuddin and Sheikh Mohammad Zakir. Sheikh Mohammad Zakir had three sons: Sheikh Abdul Majid, Sheikh Abdul Hamid, and Sheikh Abdul Rashid. Sheikh Abdul Hamid was the father of Sheikh Lutfar Rahman and the paternal grandfather of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. His wife Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib was great granddaughter of Sheikh Wasimuddin, while Sheikh Abdul Majid was the father of Sheikh Sayera Khatun and the maternal grandfather of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Sheikh Mujib and Begum Mujib's daughter, Sheikh Hasina, married M. A. Wazed in 1968 and adopted his surname, thus introducing the Wazed surname to the Sheikh family.

Shahid Serniabat: He was the nephew of Abdur Rab Serniabat and Sheikh Fazilatunnesa. He was Sheikh Hasina's first-cousin (through her mother) and also her second-cousin (since her parents were first-cousins, Shahid's father and her father were therefore first-cousins). He was killed along with his uncle and cousins in 1975.
