Origin

These people call themselves descendants of Balrama, brother of Krishna. [10]They were rulers in Nepal and belonged to Thakurivansh (ठकुरीवंश) which gave name to this gotra.[11]

It is branch of Kakran. [12]

History

Ram Swarup Joon[13] writes that Thukrila people call themselves descendants of Bal Dev, brother of Krishna. According to Dr. Bhagwan Dass who writes on the basis of rock inscriptions found in Nepal, Nepal was ruled by the rulers of Thukrila gotra prior to the present ruling dynasty. They ruled for three generations with their capital at Bhatgram till they were replaced by the present dynasty. It is also mentioned in the history of Nepal that King Hari Singh of Kashi took shelter in Nepal for fear of the Tughluks and later captured the throne by treachery.


Ram Sarup Joon[14] writes that...about 70 Jat Gotras joined the Gujar force and started calling themselves Gujars. Thakrela is one of them.


Thakur Deshraj[15] writes when Mahmud Gazanavi attacked Chittorgarh around 1046 AD, Jat rulers around Chittor moved from here to other places. W. Crook in his book ‘Tribes and Castes of North west provinces’ has mentioned that Dashand Singh was a ruler of Bijnore. After seize of Chittor by Muhamad Gori out of two persons of this Royal clan one moved to Nepal and other to Bijnore. It shows that those who went to Nepal were Thakuri and those at Bijnore were Thakurela.

Thakur Deshraj[16] concludes that if Thakurela are of Thakuri clan of the rulers of Nepal then Maukhari are also Jats because they had relations. With this argument Harshavardhana is also Jat as Thakuri, Maukhari and descendants of Harshavardhana had marital relations. Jats have Maukhari gotra at present.

जाट इतिहास:ठाकुर देशराज

राजा जगदेव मालवा से संयुक्त-प्रान्त में आये थे। वे कहां आबाद हुए, कहां तक उनका राज्य था, यह भी कुछ पता नहीं चलता है। अनेक जाट-गोत अपने को राजा जगदेव के वंशज मानते हैं1406 ई. के आस-पास विक्रमा ठाकुर अथवा ठकुरी ने संयुक्त प्रदेश में अपने साथियों सहित प्रवेश किया था और जंघारा राजपूतों को मार भगा कर हसनगढ़ परगने के आस-पास अधिकार किया था। इस बात का उल्लेख मि. क्रुक ने भी किया है, किन्तु इन लोगों ने कब तक स्वतन्त्र रूप से राज्य किया और कहां से आए थे यह वर्णन नहीं प्राप्त होता है। यदि ठकुरेले ठकुरी वंश के लोग हैं जो कि नेपाल के शासक थे तो कहना पड़ेगा कि मौखरी लोग भी जाट हैं, क्योंकि उनके आपस में सम्बन्ध होते थे और फिर इस तरह सम्राट हर्ष भी जो कि थानेश्वर के राजा थे, जाट मालूम देते हैं, क्योंकि ठकुरी, मौखरी और हर्ष के वंश वालों में वैवाहिक सम्बन्ध होते थे। जाटों में मौखरी गोत्र भी है।

डत्ल्यू क्रुक की ‘उत्तरी-पश्चिमी प्रान्तों और अवध की जातियां’ नामक पूस्तक में दशन्दसिंह जो कि बिजनौर का शासक था, उसके पूर्वजों के वर्णन में हम यह भी पढ़ते हैं कि मुहम्मद गौरी के चित्तौड़ जीत लेने पर राज घराने के दो व्यक्ति एक नेपाल और दूसरा बिजनौर की ओर चले गए थे। तब क्या यह अनुमान लगाना ठीक नहीं कि नेपाल में गए हुए ही ठकुरी हैं और उनके ही कुछ साथी जो कुछ कारणों से बिजनौर के पास बस गए थे, ठकुरेले हैं। उनके गोत्र का दूसरा ही नाम हो गया हो। मि. क्रुक ने महमूद गजनवी का समय बताया है। वह समय बहुत संभव है कि 1046 ई. रहा हो अथवा संवत् 1046 को ईसवी बता दिया गया हो। वह समय महमूद गजनवी के आक्रमणों का है। इस समय भी चित्तौड़ के आसपास जाटों के छोटे-छोटे राज्य थे। खोज करने से बहुत संभव है, दशन्दसिंह और उसके पूर्वजों तथा वंशजों का इतिहास मिल जाए। ऐसे ही इतिहास मिलने पर संयुक्त-प्रदेश की विशाल भूमि पर के कुल जाट-राज्यों का पता चल सकता है।
