Ram Swarup Joon writes about Tewathiya: Moving down from Multan during the Mughal period, these people settled down In villages Tewathi in district Gurgaon. They call themselves Shavi Jats and their biggest villages is Bhattona.
B S Dahiya writes:Certain coins were found at Ujjain and are described by K.P.Jayaswal.  A coin has a river with a fish on one side; it has a legend in the oldest form of Brahmi, reading Tubathi or Turbathi. Probably its Sanskrit equivalent is Turvasti. Coin seems to be older than Maurya times. The name which is a place name, appears to be connected with the dynastic name Turvasha. The reverse has a tree on the ground marked with a square.
These are the observation of late Dr. K P Jayaswal. His reading of the name, Tubathi is practically correct it should be tevathi / Tuvathi but it is not place name it is a clan name of the Jats. The symbols of water (with fish) and earth (with tree) are the tradition symbols of the Jats (Dharti-Pani in Hindi) It is perhaps, older than Mauryan times. Tabiti is the name of the fire goddess of the Scythians. If these suppositions are correct then it shows that the Tevathiya Jats came to India during Achaemenid disturbance.  
Tevatia Jats believe that they have migrated from village named Tevti/Teoti. There is one village of this name in Bharatpur. There is also a village of this name near Ujjain. River Tapti is considered to be named after this gotra. Country Tibet is also believed to be named after this gotra.
If we look similar names in other countries we find one tribe named Teuton in Europe and Germany. Tevatia jats are believed to have come to India in 5th century B.C. during Mauryan period from Iran. The word Tevatia has no meaning in Hindi or Sanskrit languages. In Persian language Tevatia word is found which means "Goddess of Fire". In China also a similar word Tao is found which is indicator of 'greatness'.

पहले इन जाटों का, जो भटिण्डा के क्षेत्र में आबाद थे, शिविगोत्र था। यह शिविगोत्र चन्द्रवंश में वैदिककालीन जाट गोत्र है। जैसा कि हम पहले लिख चुके हैं कि इस वंश के एक सरदार गोपालसिंह, जो कि तिब्बत गांव (जो अब तिरपत) का रहने वाला था, ने अपने वंशजों के साथ आकर बल्लभगढ़ राज्य की स्थापना की और शिवि गोत्र के स्थान पर अपने को तिब्बत (तिरपत) गांव के नाम से तेवतिया प्रसिद्ध कर दिया। उसके अन्य वंशधर जिनौली, नंगला, तिरसण, करिज, हाजीपुर, देलाको, छपरौली, अछगौदा, नंगलाभुक्कु, अटाली आदि गांवों में आबाद हुए जो इसी तेवतिया गोत्र के जाट हैं। सन् 1857 ई० के विद्रोह में अंग्रेजों ने तेवतिया जाटों के बल्लभगढ़ राज्य को समाप्त कर दिया किन्तु इसके बाद अंग्रेजी शासनकाल में तेवतिया जाटों की भटौना नाम की एक नई रियासत का विकास हुआ जो कि जिला बुलन्दशहर में है। इस भटौना रियासत का आदि पुरुषा बहारिया नामक जाट सरदार था, जो बल्लभगढ़ राज्य को सुदृढ़ करने वाले बलरामसिंह का भाई था। उसके तीन पुत्रों ने बुलन्दशहर जिले के उपजाऊ भाग गुलावटी के पास भटौना नामक स्थान पर अधिकार स्थिर किया। यहां से तेवतिया जाटों ने सन्तति वृद्धि की और कृषि की विशाल आय से बहुत गांव, भूमि मोल लेकर बसाए जैसे - अस्ता, छपरावत, खदैड़ा, देवली, नरावठी, नगौरा, शेख, बटाल, कयामपुर, भरथल, झण्डामसरखपुर, रामगढ़ी, महमूदपुर, मिसौली, गोठनी आदि। मेरठ में जानी खुर्द, चित्तौड़ा, भदौला, मुरादाबाद में भवानीपुर नामक गांव तेवतियों के हैं। इस वंश का विशाल वैभव गुड़गांव और बुलन्दशहर जिलों में भी है। सब मिलकर 60-70 गांवों में बसे हुए ये लोग अब तेवतिया के साथ भटौनिया नाम से कहे जाते हैं क्योंकि इनकी अधिक प्रसिद्धी भटौना गांव से निकलने पर हुई। ब्रिटिश साम्राज्य के लिए जहां इनकी सेवायें अग्रगण्य रहीं, वहां देशभक्ति और स्वाधीनता के लिए किए गए कार्य भी उल्लेखनीय हैं। चौधरी चरणसिंह भूतपूर्व प्रधानमन्त्री और भारत के किसानों के महान् नेता इसी गोत्र के थे।
