Dudis are considered to be the descendents of Duda Rishi. Others believe the clan to be descended from a Jat named Duda. Some people believe that this clan has derived its name from Dudhi plant while still some others are of the view that Dudi gotra started from village named Dudiya Kheda 
Dhundi Raja - We find mention of Dhundi Raja in Kashi. Guru Charita states regarding Guide to Kashinath that early in the morning, after taking the bath in the Ganges one should first offer worship to Dhundi Raja and then offer his worship to Lord Vishveshwara.
Maṇikarṇa (मणिकर्ण, “precious ear-ring”) refers to one of the fifty-six vināyakas located at Kāśī (Vārāṇasī), and forms part of a sacred pilgrimage (yātrā), described in the Kāśīkhaṇḍa (Skanda-purāṇa 4.2.57). He is also known as Maṇikarṇavināyaka, Maṇikarṇagaṇeśa and Maṇikarṇavighneśa. These fifty-six vināyakas are positioned at the eight cardinal points in seven concentric circles (8x7). They center around a deity named Ḍhuṇḍhirāja (or Ḍhuṇḍhi-vināyaka) positioned near the Viśvanātha temple, which lies at the heart of Kāśī, near the Gaṅges. This arrangement symbolises the interconnecting relationship of the macrocosmos, the mesocosmos and the microcosmos.
Tej Ram Sharma mentions that The name 'Dadda' (डड्ड), 'Dudda' (डुड्ड) or 'Dudda' (डुड्डा)  cannot be derived from any Sanskrit root. Nor are these names found in any Sanskrit or Prakrit dictionary. Dr. H.D. Sankalia suggests that these names were derived from the Sanskrit term Dardara,  meaning 'a mountain', or a region having holes or ravines. The man may have shifted from a hilly region.
Sant Kanha Ram writes that Dudi and Chharang Jats are reported inhabiting village Lunsara in year 1103 AD when Tejaji went to Paner from Kharnal and made a night halt in Lunsara on 25.8.1103 in Jayal tahsil of Nagaur district in Rajasthan.
गणेश बेरवाल ने लिखा है कि राजगढ़ के बारे में सरकारी गज़ट में अंकित है कि यह महान थार रेगिस्तान का गेट है, जहां से होकर दिल्ली से सिंध तक के काफिले गुजरते हैं। 1620 ई. के पहले यहाँ प्रजातांत्रिक गणों की व्यवस्था थी जिसमें भामू, डुडी, झाझरिया, मलिक, पूनीयां, राड व सर्वाग गणतांत्रिक शासक थे । जैतपुर पूनीया गाँव था जहां से झासल, भादरा (हनुमानगढ़) तक का बड़ा गण था। जिसका मुख्यलय सिधमुख था। गण में एक ही व्यक्ति सिपाही भी था और किसान भी। लड़ाई होने पर पूरा गण मिलकर लड़ता था। राठोड़ों की नियमित सेना ने इनको गुलाम बनाया।
Dhundi Raja founder of Dodi Tal
Dodital is believed to be the birth place of Lord Ganesha. According to one of the popular legends Lord Ganesha chose this place as his abode. The legend of Birth of Ganesha is mentioned Kedarkhand of Skanda Purana.
There is a temple devoted to Lord Ganesha here. Another name for this lake is Dhundital meaning Ganesh ka tal or lake of Ganesha. Dhundi or Dundi is one of names of Ganesha. Ganesha is known as Dhundi Raja/Dundi Raja. There is an inscription recorded in the Dhundi Raja Ganesha Temple here at Dodital.
A scientist in 1961 tried to measure the depth of the lake but could not.
Dodeah King of Bhainsrorgarh
James Tod visited Bhainsrorgarh on 19 February 1820 and has provided us following information, which includes Dodeah rulers in Bhainsrorgarh, an ancient Fort in Rawatbhata tahsil of district Chittorgarh in Rajasthan:
The etymology of Bhynsror: Tradition has preserved the etymology of Bhynsror, and dates its erection from the second century of the era of Vicrama, though others make it antecedent even to him. Be that as it may, it adds a fact of some importance, viz., that the Charuns, or bards, were then, as now, the privileged carriers of Rajwarra, and that this was one of their great lines of communication. Bhynsror, therefore, instead of being the work of some mighty conqueror, owes its existence to the joint efforts of Bhynsa Sah, the merchant, and Rora, a Charun and Bunjarri, to protect their tandas (caravans) from the lawless mountaineers, when compelled to make a long halt during the periodical rains.
How many lines of heroes possessed it before the Haras established themselves among its ruins is unknown, though the "universal Pramar" is mentioned. Its subsequent change of masters, and their names and history, are matters of less doubt ; since the altars of the Dodeah, the Pramar, the Rahtore, the Suktawut, the Chondawut,
- "— who sought and found, by dangerous roads,
- " A path to perpetuity of fame ;"
are still visible. Of the Dodeah name we have already preserved one wreck, though whether the ' rocket of the moon' was of the family who dwelt upon the whirlpools of the Chambal, we must leave to conjecture. Not so of his successor, the Rahtore, who was a scion of the house of Mehwo, on the Salt River of the desert, from which, though he was but a vassal of Mundore, the Rana scorned not to take a wife boasting the pure blood of the kings of Canouj. A younger brother accompanied her to the court of Cheetore. Soon after, the Rawal of Jaisalmer dared to put an affront upon the Rana, the acknowledged head of the Rajpoot race ! The chivalry of Mewar was assembled, and the beera of vengeance held up, which the stripling heir of Mehwo, darting forward, obtained. Although but fifteen years of age, entreaties
[p.603] (part): Before, however, we altogether quit the wilds of the Chumbul, we must record that Bhynsror had been visited by another man of blood, the renowned Alla-o-din, in whose epithets of khooni or 'the sanguinary ;' and Secunder Sani, or 'the second Alexander,' by which history has given him perpetuity of infamy, we recognize the devastating and ferocious Ghilji king, who assailed every Hindu prince in India. Obedient to the letter of the law, he had determined to leave not one stone upon another of the temples or palaces of Bhynsror. Everywhere we searched for memorials of the Hoon, whose name is also connected with the foundation of Bhynsror ; of the Pramar, or the Dodeah ; but in vain. The vestiges of these ages had disappeared, or been built up in the more modern fortifications. Two such inscriptions we indeed discovered, reversed and applied as
[p.604]: common building materials in the walls around the town :
One was dated S. 1179 (A.D. 1123), but being in the old ornamented Jain character, would have required time and labour to decipher.
The other is also anterior to Alia, and the ornaments in this are decidedly Jain ; its purport is as given in the box.
|Bhainsrorgarh Inscription of S. 1302 (A.D. 1246) |
This form of sasun, or religious charity, is peculiar, and styled sasun Udyadit, which proves that the Pramar, of whom this is a memorial, was a feudatory of the prince of Dhar, whose era has been fixed. These discoveries stimulated our research, and my revered friend and guru, who is now deeply embued with antiquarian enthusiasm, vainly offered a large reward for permission to dig for the image of Parswdnat'h, his great pontiff, of whose shrine he has no doubt the first inscription is a memorial. When about to leave this place (indeed our baggage had gone on), we were informed of some celebrated temples across the river at a place called Barolli, anciently Dholpoor. The shrine is dedicated to Guteswara Mahadeva, with a lingam revolving in the yoni, the wonder of those who venture amongst its almost impervious and unfrequented woods to worship. As I could not go myself, I despatched the guru to hunt for inscriptions and bring me an account of it.
Dudi King of Ghazni
Mangal Rao succeeded Raja Bhatti, but his fortune was not equal to that of his fathers. Dhoondi, king of Ghazni, with a mighty force, invaded Lahore; nor did Mungul Rao oppose him, but with his eldest son fled into the wilds on the hanks of the river. The foe then invested Salivahanpura, where resided the family of the Raja ; but Musoor Rao escaped and fled to the Lakhi Jungle. There being only a cultivating peasantry in this tract, he overcame them, and became master of the country. 
Again we find mention of Dudi in the Multan Army of Husein Shah fighting with Rao Tano son of Rao Kehar (731 AD), the Bhatti Chief in Jaisalmer. James Tod writes that Rao Tano succeeded Rao Kehar. He laid waste the lands of the Barahas, and those of the Langaha of Multan. But Husein Shah advanced with the Langaha Pathans, clothed in armour with iron helms, with the men of Doodi, of Kheechee; the Khokur ; the Mogul, Johya, the Jadu, and Syed, all mounted on horses, to the number of ten thousand men, to attack the Jadoo.
James Tod notes that Babar in his valuable Autobiography, gives us the names of all the tribes he met in his passage into India, and this enumeration goes far to improve the authenticity of the early annals of the Bhattis. Babar does not mention "the men of Doodi"  That means by the time of Baber the Dudi people had migrated from Multan.
Duddee Rulers of Rahim Yar Khan
Duddees Influence - In 1540, Duddees (Daudpota Family of Pakistan) a well-known tribe rose to considerable power in the eastern part of Bahawalpur. Amir Bahadur Khan Abbasi, the chief of Daudpota then came to power him and his descendants wielded small principalities of Bahawalpur State into a united kingdom. Amir Muhammad Mubarik Khan I, Abbasi who came to power in 1702 was an able commander and leader. Throughout his reign he had to fight many battles against Kalhoras. He abdicated in 1723 A.D., in favor of his son Sadiq Mohammad Khan I. Sadiq Mohammad Khan I (1723-1746) was killed in a battle with Khuda Yar Khan Kalhora. Amir Mohammad Bahawal Khan I, (1 746-1 949) ascended the throne in 1746. During his short rule, he built the towns of Bahawalpur, Qaimpur, Hasilpur, Tranda Ali Murad Khan, Shahbazpur and Mohammadpur Laman.
On the death of Amir Bahawal Khan III. Sadiq Mohammad Khan III, (1852-1853) was crowned as Amir. On assuming ruler ship he confined prince Haji Khan and his brothers and treated them harshly. A large number of Bahawalpur army was demobilized. All the grants, rights and claims of Daudpotas and other usual expenses were diminished and abolished. These events made the Amir unpopular. On the 29th of Rabi-ul-Sani, 1269 A.H, Fateh Garh Fort was attacked at night. Prince Haji Khan, who was kept as prisoner, was freed and brought to Khanpur. Haji Khan entered Ahmedpur East without any resistance and Sadiq Muhammad Khan III was imprisoned. Prince Haji Khan who assumed the title of Fateh Khan ruled the state from 1853 to 1858 A.D. Prince Rahim Yar Khan succeeded his father, the late Amir Fateh Khan Abbasi, as Muhammad Bahawal Khan IV (1858-1866). He was poisoned and died on the 25th March. I866. On the death of Amir Bahawal Khan IV, Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan IV was crowned when he was four and half year old. He was installed in 1879 when he attained maturity In the interim period from 1866 to 1879. The state was supervised by British Officers. Amir Muhammad Bahawal Khan V, the next successor was about I6 years of age at the time of his father's death in 1907. Amir Sadiq Mohammad Khan Abbasi V (I 907-1955), was proclaimed Amir of Bahawalpur on the death of his father in 1907. He was then a child of three years old. He ruled the state till 1955 when it was integrated in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
Dudi rulers in Rajasthan
Dudi Jats had ruled in Rajasthan. The Dudis are considered to be originated from Pushkar in Ajmer and ruled Didwana, Sambhar Lake, Nagaur area for 30 generations before the rule of Muslims and Rajputs. Raja Dharmpal Dudi ruled Didwana 25 generations ago in Dudi Nagavansh. Dudis founded the town Didwana in Nagaur district of Rajasthan and it was their capital. The kuldevi of Dudi Jats is at the Randhisar Pahadi (रणधीसर पहाड़ी). This is a the Hill where there is a temple of Goddess on the top of the hill. Randhisar village in Sujangarh tahsil in Churu district in Rajasthan.

- Dada - Beegaji (worshipped on bhadwa badi 6)
Rao Chhotu Singh provides information that Rao Dedraj Ji in Chauhan vansha founded village Didiyasar (डीडीयासर). Dudi Gotra is said to get name after Rao Dedraj Ji. The ancestry of Rao Dedraj Ji is as under:
Chaudhari Devsi Dudi left Didiyasar in samvat 1290 (1233 AD) and came to village Jal (जल). Chaudhari Gajsi Dudi left village Jal in samvat 1352 (1295 AD) and founded village Gajsar. Chadhari Sitram Dudi left village Gajsar in samvat 1422 and founded village Sitsar on baisakh sudi teej samvat 1422 (1365 AD).
Dharmpal Singh Dudee has obtained information from Badwa of Dudis. Dudi people are said to have lineage with Gogaji and Jujhar Singh. As per Badwa the origin of Dudi is from Chohan Sakal (?) - Sambhar - Ajmer - Didwana. Father of Gogaji Jivraj (Jewar) Moved from Didwana to Dadrewa. When Mahmud Ghazni attacked Somnath temple Goga provided him a tough resistance in western Rajasthan. Goga became martyr along with his all sons and relatives. Since no son of Goga was alive his brother Bairasi or his son Udayraj became Rana of Dadrewa. Some Rajputs move out from Dadrewa are Dudi now and write Dadarwal. Dodiya/Dudiya Dods Rajput Sampwant (?) of Chohan are also Dudi. Sekhsaria Jats from Sekhsar are also Dudi but write Sekhsaria.Sekhsar village was adopted by Dudis. Some other Gotras with Chohan link have are sister gotra of Dudi. We have to find common origin. One Burdak village founded by a Dudi but not a single Dudi now all Burdak now. There are so many other villages founded by Dudi but not a single Dudi now.
According to the Badwa records of Dudis, Gajsar village in Churu district of Rajasthan was founded by Gaja Dudi in samvat 625 (568 AD). Gaja Dudi's brother was Sahja Dudi who founded Sahjoosar in present Churu district. There is one old fort at Gajsar. Gaja Dudi's daughter was Abhal De who was a brave lady and is said to be married to Mangal Saran of Bharang. All Dudis are said to be migrated from Gajsar.
It is a matter of intensive research to find the exact year of establishment of the village Gajsar, since the two versions have a difference of 1365-568 = 797 i.e of 8 centuries?
Kalwa Bara village in tehsil Makrana of Nagaur district in Rajasthan was founded by Kaluji Jat of Dudi gotra. The tamrapatra of Jagir of Kalwa was given to Kaluji Dudi by Delhi Sultnate. Kaluji built many ponds, developed gochar lands and dug a Bera (still present) named Dhala in his Jagir. Kaluji had two sons Ashaji and Dedaji. Their descends are called Ashawat Dudi and Dedawat Dudi. After their death the Meratias of Borawad invited Dudis on feast and killed many of them and occupied the Jagir of Kalwa. The remaining Dudis moved to other parts of Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab etc. Some Dudis moved to far off Dhanis in Kalwa region.
Dudis also founded Dhundhar and Dudiya Khera towns in Jaipur region. There are number of villages of Dudis in Nagaur, Bikaner, Barmer, Jaisalmer, Hanumangarh and Chittorgarh in Rajasthan. After the Jat kingdom of Rajasthan was taken over by the Rajputs, Some Dudis moved to Haryana and settled in villages around Bhiwani, Jhajjar and Hisar districts.
Dudis were also in the army of Maharaja Suraj Mal. After wars with Muslims in Delhi they moved to jungle areas towards Jhajjar and Rewari. The East of Yamuna was also over populated so they moved westward.
राव बीका और राव जोधा की जाटों को समूल नष्ट करने की चाल
राव बीका और राव जोधा ने जाटों को समूल नष्ट करने की चाल चली। उन्होंने राजपूतों को मन्त्र दिया कि हम जाटों से लड़कर नहीं जीत सकते इसलिए धर्मभाई का रिवाज अपनाकर जब विश्वास कायम हो जाये तब सामूहिक भोज के नाम पर बाड़े में इकठ्ठा करो। नीचे बारूद बिछाकर नष्ट करो। इस कुकृत्य से असंख्य जाटों को नष्ट किया गया।  बीकानेर रियासत के मुख्य गाँव जहाँ जाटों को जलाया गया -
- जसरासर (चूरू) गाँव के कस्वां जाटों को,
- राजासर बीकान (लक्ष्मीनारायण) के भरता सारण को,
- हरदेसर के सारणों को,
- मालासर (गोगासर के पास) के सारणों को,
- बुकनसर बड़ा डूडीयों को अक्षय तृतीय के दिन,
- सोनडी आदि गाँवों में बारूद से आगजनी की घटनाएँ की। बहुत से गाँवों के पास पुराने थेड़ (खंडहर) पड़े हैं।
वीर बिग्गामल जी डूडी
जिला चूरू के वीर बिग्गामल जी डूडी ने गायों की रक्षा के लिए अपने प्राण न्योछावर कर दिए । पोटी गाँव के पोटलिया गोत्र के जाटों की लड़की अपने घर चरखा कात रही थी । बिग्गामल जी घोड़ी पर सवार थे और रास्ते में इस लड़की से पानी माँगा । लड़की ने जवाब दिया तुम क्या मेरी खेदियोड़ी मोड़ देगा अर्थात मेरी गायें राठ ले गए हैं उनको वापस ला दोगे ? बिग्गाजी ने कहा कि गायें लाने में मर गया तो क्या सती हो जावोगी । लड़की ने जवाब दिया यह तो वक्त ही बताएगा । बिग्गामल जी बिना पानी पिए ही राठों के पीछे हो लिए । वहां पर भिडंत हुई । गाये तो छुड़ा ली लेकिन बिग्गामल जी शहीद हो गए । काफी देर इंतजार के बाद वह लड़की पानी का गुणिया भरकर साथ में कुत्ता लेकर गयी । आगे जाकर देखा तो बिग्गाजी मृत मिले । वह लड़की उन पर कुंवारी सती हो गयी । यह स्थान पोटी से उत्तर-पूर्वी कोने पर स्थित है जहाँ मंदिर बना है । यहाँ लोग दाद के इलाज की मन्नत मांगने जाते हैं । विश्वास है कि यहाँ पूजा करने से दाद अच्छे हो जाते हैं ।
Other Chauhan Samants
Some of the Chauahn Samants may have relationship with the Dudis are as follows:
Khichi Chauhan- Asrao 's son was Manakrao whose descendants are known as Khichi Chauhans. Asrao gave his son jagir of 84 villages. He constructed two forts Bhadanon and Jayal. After this ajairaj, Chandrarao, Lakhanrao, sangamrao and Gundalrao were samantas of Chauhans. (Devi Singh Mandawa,p.135)
Dodiya Samantas - Dod or Dodiya (डोडिया) - Earlier they had rule over some states in Gujarat. Present Hadauti was earlier occupied by Hunas and known as Huna Pradesh. Dods (डोड) defeated them and established their capital at Dodgarh (Gagrum). This area was under Nagavanshi rulers. This is mentioned in an Inscription of v.s. 847 (770 AD). Dodiyas defeated them and continued to rule here till v. s. 1300 (1243 AD). Jahajpur area in Mewar was also ruled by Dods. An inscription of their rule is found of the year v.s. 1334 (1177 AD). Telanjarai Dod was a samanta of Prithviraj. (Devi Singh Mandawa,p.135)
Dods of Bulandshahr - This town was earlier known as Vana (वाणा). This was ruled by Dod Kshatriyas, who were samantas of Chauhans. During reign of Prithvirah the ruler of this area was Anang. Anang had left a grant of v.s. 1233 (1176 AD). According to this grant 16 generations of Dods ruled here. They probably established here around 900 AD. When Mahmud Gazanvi attacked Mathura, Bulandshahr was ruled by Hardatt Dod. (Devi Singh Mandawa,p.135)
Dudis in Sindh
The Dudi people were old rulers of Khokara Kot, an ancient kingdom of Aryan times. There are many Dudee Gotra villages in Sindh.
