- The present name of Sangwan Gotra came from Raja Sangram Singh or Sangu who came to Charkhi Dadri area in Haryana from Ajmer in Rajasthan after a long war between old Kshatriya Jat Aryas and newly formed Rajput Kingdoms of Rajasthan.
Ram Swarup Joon writes about Sangwan - Sanga: They also belong to Jakhar dynasty. A King of the Sangwan gotra ruled in the Sarsu jungles of Mewar. According to Amin Chand, the author of 'Jat Mimansa', their early rulers were Brahmadutt Somaud, Agni Kumar, Marichi, Surya and Shalbhan. They have about 40 villages in Dadri and they are also found in Amritsar, Ferozepur and Patiala. In the Jhelum and Gujrat regions they are called Sanga.
Ram Sarup Joon quotes Alberuni, the eminent historian, who writes that Chittor was governed by Jatrana (Jat) Kings and its old name was 'Jator', where 'Mansarovar' exists in the memory of King Maninder Jatrana. According to the writings of Pandit Ami Chand, 14 Sangwan (Jat) Kings again governed Chittor and their capital was in Sarso Jungle.

- 13. Lahar- Lahari Raja (1315 AD) - Founded kingdom at Leeri village in Peesangan tahsil of Ajmer district in Rajasthan with the capital named after him.
- 14-21. Nine generations ruled at Leeri (Ajmer) (total period about 225 years)
- 22. Sangram Singh (1540 AD) - He left Leeri (Ajmer) and came to Dadri area in 1540-45 AD during rule of Shersah Suri
Note - The period is calculated from known period of Sangram Singh (1540 AD) assuming each generation of 25 years.
Thakur Deshraj writes thatThe Lahari Raja came to Ajmer area after long fight with Rajputs in Marwar area. Their title changed to Rana in Ajmer. There is one town "Lahar" in Bhind district of Madhya Pradesh. Surname Rana and Lahari are found in this part of Madhya Pradesh. The kingdom name was Lahadi in the name of Raja Lahari. The present name is village Lihdi near Ajmer. Sangwan Jats ruled here for 9 generations. Last king of this clan in Ajmer area was Sangram Singh or Sangu. He left the land Ajmer-Merwara. Dada Sangu came to Dadri area in 1540-45 AD during rule of Shersah Suri.
H.A. Rose  writes that Jakhar (जाखड़) is a tribe of Deswali Jats, claiming (Chauhan or Udhi) descent. Jaku, their eponym, migrated from Bikaner to Jhajjar in Rohtak. A Raja of Dwarka had a bow which Jaku failed to bend, in spite of the promised reward. In shame he left his native land and settled in Bikaner. The legend clearly points to the loss of military status by the Jakhars. Of the same stock are the Sangwan, Piru, and Kadian Jats.

ठाकुर देशराज लिखते हैं
ठाकुर देशराज लिखते हैं कि सांगू के नाम पर उसके साथी सांगवान कहलाये। ये कश्यप गोत्री जाट हैं। आरम्भ में इनका राज्य मारवाड़ के अन्तर्गत सारसू जांगल प्रदेश पर था। इनके पुरखा आदू अथवा आदि राजा से लेकर 13 पीढ़ी तक इनका राज्य सारसू जांगला पर रहा। जिन 13 सांगवान राजाओं ने मारवाड़ के सारसू जांगला प्रदेश पर राज्य किया, उनके नाम क्रमशः इस प्रकार हैं-(1) आदि राजा, (2) युगादि राजा, (3) ब्रह्मदत्त राजा, (4) अतरसोम राजा, (5) नन्द राजा, (6) महानन्द राजा, (7) अग्निकुंमार राजा, (8) मेर राजा, (9) मारीच राजा, (10) कश्यप राजा, (11) सूर्य राजा, (12) सूर्य राजा, (13) शालिवाहक राजा।
जाट इतिहास:ठाकुर देशराज,पृष्ठान्त-595
इन तेरह जाट राजाओं ने सारसू जांगला में राज किया और राजा की पदवी से भूपित भी रहे।
शालिवाहन के उत्तराधिकारी का नाम लैहर अथवा लहरी था। वह जांगला देश को छोड़कर अपने साथियों समेत अजमेर में आ गया। यहां उसकी पदवी राणा की हो गई। इस समेत नौ पीढ़ी तक सांगवान गोत के जाट नरेशों ने अजमेर की भूमि पर राज्य किया। हमारे मत से लैहर ने जिस स्थान को अपनी राजधानी बनाया था वह वर्तमान का लीड़ी ग्राम हो सकता है। लहैड ने अपने नाम से जो नगर होगा, वह आरम्भ में लैहड़ी रहा होगा और वही वर्तमान में लीडी हो सकता है। इस कुल का अन्तिम राजा संग्रामसिंह अथवा सांगू था। सांगू और उसके साथी मेरवाड़े की भूमि को छोड़कर चर्खी दादरी की ओर चले गये। भाट-ग्रन्थों में जो वंशावली दी गई है, उससे सांगू का समय पन्द्रहवीं-सोलहवीं सदी के बीच का जान पड़ता है और वह शेरशाह सूरी का समय कहा जा सकता है। भाट-ग्रन्थों में सांगू को अब से 20 पीढ़ी पहले लिखा है। औसतन 20 पीढ़ी के 400 वर्ष माने जाते हैं। इसीलिए हमने सांगू को पन्द्रहवीं-सोलहवीं शताब्दी के मध्य में बताया है। इनका प्रथम राजा जो कि मारवाड़ में सारसू-जांगला पर राज करता था, उस समय आठवीं, दसवी सदियों के बीच का हो सकता था, क्योंकि उसे अब से 50 पीढ़ी पहले बताया गया है।
