Gait (गैट) Geta (गेटा)[1] [2] Gaite(गैट) Get (गेट)[3] Getae (गेट) Gate (गेट) is Gotra of Jats. They live in Haryana, Rajasthan[4], Madhya Pradesh.

Origin

This gotra is said to be originated from word Getae of Greek language used for Jats.[5]

History

Originally they were settled in Ajmer district from where moved to Karwas village in Kotputli and to Pera village in Mahendragarh district in Haryana. Some families of this gotra moved from Haryana to Madhya Pradesh and started cultivation in areas around Bhopal.


H. G. Keene, [6] writes that There is also a thriving little principality — that of Dholpur — between Agra and Gwalior, under a descendant of the Jat Rana of Gohad, so often met with in the history of the times we are now reviewing (v. inf. p. 128.) It is interesting to note further, that some ethnologists have regarded this fine people (Jats) as of kin to the ancient Get, and to the Goths of Europe, by whom not only Jutland, but parts of the south-east of England and Spain were overrun, and to some extent peopled. It is, therefore, possible that the yeomen of Kent and Hampshire have blood relations in the natives of Bharatpur and the Panjab.
