The early history of Bamraulia gotra is not known. As per the books maintained by traditional Jagas, Jats in Yudhistir samvat 192 had established a village Bamrauli Khera on the banks of Chenab River. Raja Brahmdeo ruled here.
Ram Swarup Joon writes....Bhimrolia is the gotra of the Dholpur dynasty. According to their bard, descendants of the Vir Bhadra were called Bhadras for 184 generations. After Tej Sen they were called Sens for 62 generations. For several generations thereafter they were called Muni and later Ghandras after King Vijaya Chand. Their last ruler was Shamsi, whose descendants are the present Dholpur dynasty.
