Khera (खेरा) Kheda (खेड़ा)[1] is gotra of Jats. Khera (खेरा) Jat tribe[2] is found in Kabirwala tahsil, Multan district, Pakistan.[3] Khere (खेड़े) is a Kamboh clan found in Amritsar. [4]

Origin

  • This gotra originated from ancestral persons who inhabited in high places, known as Khera. [5]
  • According to H.A. Rose Khera was the son of a Sidhu Jat's daughter and treated his relations-in-law harshly — whence the name Khera fr. kharwa, 'bitter.' [6]

History

H.A. Rose writes that Khera (खेरा), a Jat tribe is found in Kabirwala tahsil, Multan district, whither they migrated from the Lakki Jungle in the 13th century. It is also found in Ludhiana and Amritsar. It gives the marginal pedigree and thus claims Solar Race origin. Its home was Mathra-nagari on the Jumna, whence they migrated to Takhar-wind in the Malwa. An attempt to settle in Khadur was foiled by the Kang, but eventually the latter tribe was defeated and the Khera settled in their present villages in Amritsar. Khera was the son of a Sidhu Jat's daughter and treated his relations-in-law harshly — whence the name Khera fr. kharwa, 'bitter.' [7]
