Origin

Devanda (देवंदा) gotra gets name from place called Devadhara (देवदर) [6], a village in tahsil Jagadhri of Yamunanagar district in Haryana.

History

H.A. Rose[7] writes that Deo is a tribe of Jats which is practically confined to the Sialkot district where they regard Sankatra as one of their ancestors and have a highly revered spot dedicated to him, in tho town of that name, in tahsil Zafarwal. They claim a very ancient origin, but not Rajput. Their ancestor is said to be Mahāj, who came from " the Saki jungle " in Hindustan. Of his five sons, Sohal, Kom, Dewal, Aulakh and Deo, the two latter gave their names to two Jat tribes, while the other branches dispersed over Gujranwala, and Jhang. But another story refers them to Raja Jagdeo, a Surajbansi . They have the same marriage ceremony as the Sahi, and also use the goat's blood in a similar manner in honour of their ancestors, and have several very peculiar customs. They will not intermarry with the Man Jats, with whom they have some ancestral connection. Also found in Amritsar.

The Deo have their jathera at a place close to some pool or tank where on certain occasions, such as a wedding, they congregate. The Brahman marks each man's forehead as he comes out of the pool with blood from the goat's ear : this is done to the bridegroom also. The bread at the feast is divided, 9 loaves to every bachelor and 18 to every married man. [8]
