Origin

Khir (खिर) Khira (खिर) was Chandravanshi King. He was son of Brija (बृज) who was son of Aniruddha (अनिरुद्ध). Aniruddha was son of Pradyumna (प्रद्युम्न) and grandson of Krishna. [3]

Hukum Singh Panwar[4] has given the ancestry of Bharatpur rulers starting from 1. Yadu. Shini is at S.No. 38 and Krishna at S.No. 43 as under[5]:

34. Andhaka → 35. Bhajmana → 36. Viduratha → 37. Shura → 38. Shini → 39. Bhoja → 40. Hardika → 41. Devamidha → 42. Vasudeva → 43. Krishna → 44. Pradyumna → 45. Aniruddha → 46. Vajra → 47. KhiraJhareja + Yadubhan[6]

After Vajra the Khira's line is separate from the ancestry of Bharatpur rulers.
