B S Dahiya writes: The Vayu Purana mentions them as Maunika or Maun (Man) Vishnu Purana mentions them as Maunas, a tribe of Gandharvas, who annihilated the Nagas (Wilson's Edn.). They are the same as the English/German, Maan. Their coins have been found in Goa/ Konkan areas. Perhaps, they are the Mannai on the west of Caspian Sea, who in the eighth century B.C. had their kingdom, called Mannai, now Armenia (Ari-Man). They were under the overlordship of Tiglath Pileser IV and it was on their seat that Deioces Manda founded his empire.
Bhim Singh Dahiya identifies this clan with the Rigvedic Tribe - Mana: (RV 1/169/8, 171/5. 1/86/5, 117/11, Vlll/18/20). The last hymn mentions a king, named Manya Mana. They are to be identified with the Mana, Mannai of West Asian history. They were on the river Purusni (Ravi) at the time of Rigveda. That it is a warrior clan, is proved by the fact that it is not found in the Brahmanic Gotra list of Purshottam. 
Mana (मान) and Hala (हाल) - Varahamihira mentions Mana and Hala together in his Brihat Samhita the name of a people  But these are two different clan names the Mana and the Hala / Hala . The Mana are separately mentioned as a people in Markandeya Purana and so are the Hala and their country in the North.  Mana was also supposed to be the name of Agastya’s father; and consequently his family is called Mana.  But it is doubtful, to say the least. Rig Veda mentions a Mana and also sons of Mana. (252-See SED, p. 793)  The Rig Veda/Mandala 1/Hymn 169 shloka 8 mentions Mana as under:
- "Give to the Manas, Indra with Maruts, gifts universal, gifts of cattle foremost.
- Thou, God, art praised with Gods who must be lauded. May we find strengthening food in full abundance."
According to Thakur Deshraj about 1500 years ago a group of these people came from Ghazni and settled at place called 'Balavansa' near Delhi. Maan clan descended from Maas Singh. His son Bijal Singh came to 'Dhosi' village and settled here. The village Dhosi is surrounded by hills and situated near Narnaul in Haryana. Large number of people come to this place from far off places every year. Many temples and kunds have been constructed here. A fair is also organized at this place.
Prior to the Maan people came, Gandas gotra Jats were the rulers here. Bijal Singh was married to Gaurandevi, daughter of Nagal. He founded a village called 'Gorir' in the name of Gaurandevi at a distance of 3 km from Dhosi.
Roopram Singh was the chieftain of this clan after 20 generations of Bijal Singh. At the time of Roopram Singh, Shekhawats had occupied this province. Roopram Singh struggled for about 10 to 12 years in mid nineteenth century against Shekhawats of Khetri, but Maan people did not accept the rule of Shekhawats.
In Alipur village in Delhi there is a shaheed park, managed and administered by MCD, there are 70 names written in the park. They were crushed to death by road roller by Britishers for revolting in 1857, they were all Jats and there clan name was Mann. There were only 70 family of Jats in this village that time and all who were above 18 years of Age were crushed to death by road roller in 1857. After this incidence, the Britishers made a permanent stay in the village and set up a choki/thana to curb the Jats.
ठाकुर देशराज लिखते हैं -
यह भाटी जाटों की एक शाखा है, ऐसा भाट-ग्रन्थ मानते हैं। इनकी वंशावली जो जाटों की लिखी हुई है, उसमें भाटियों को सूर्यवंशी लिखा है। साथ ही यह भी लिखा है कि भक्त पूरनमल के पिता शंखपति का विवाह इन्हीं लोगों में हुआ था। लगभग पन्द्रह सौ वर्ष पहले इनका एक समूह देहली के पास बलवांसा नामक स्थान में गजनी से आकर आबाद हुआ था। मानसिंह जिसके नाम पर इस वंश की प्रसिद्धि बताई जाती है, उसका पुत्र बीजलसिंह ढोसी ग्राम में आकर अवस्थित हुआ। ढोसी नारनौल के पास पहाड़ों में घिरा हुआ नगर था। इस स्थान पर अब भी दूर-दूर के यात्री आते हैं, मेला लगता है। कई मन्दिर और कुंड यहां पर उस समय के बने हुए हैं। पहले यहां गंडास गोत्र के जाटों का अधिकार था। इसने नागल की पुत्री गौरादेवी से सम्बन्ध किया और फिर ढोसी से 3 मील हटकर
जाट इतिहास:ठाकुर देशराज,पृष्ठान्त-605
गौरादेवी के नाम पर गोरीर नाम का गांव बसाया। आगे उनसे जितना भी हो सका, अपना राज्य बढ़ाया। वीजलसिंह से 20 पीढ़ी पीछे सरदार रूपरामसिंहजी हुए। उस समय इस प्रदेश पर शेखावत आ चुके थे। खेतड़ी के शेखावतों से रूपरामसिंहजी का 10, 12 वर्ष तक संघर्ष रहा, किन्तु इन्होंने अधीनता स्वीकार न की। मान लागों के अनेक दल थे और वे अनेक प्रदेशों में बसे हुए हैं। खेतड़ी के शेखावतों से रूपरामसिंह का युद्ध अब से लगभग 80-90 वर्ष पहले हुआ था, क्योंकि कुं. नेतरामसिंहजी गोरीर वालों से रूपरामसिंहजी चार पीढ़ी पहले हुए थे। उस समय सुखरामसिंहजी के पास कितना इलाका था, भाट लोगों की पोथियों से इतना पता नहीं लगता है।
