Chaudhary Manga was a famous leader of this dynasty. Both Sikh and Muslim descendants of Chaudhary Manga worship at his fortress. His son, Kalas, obtained a Jagir. Dewan Singh son of Jai Chand Jogi, in this dynasty adopted Sikhism and was an important leader of the Bhangian Misal. Sardar Hari Singh Dhillon adopted him as his Dharmputra. In 1816 AD the daughter of Sardar Joth Singh was married to Ranjit Singh, son of Kharak Singh.
The ancestor who gives his name to this branch of the Bajwa Jats was one Kalas, whose history is shrouded in obscurity. He was the son of one Manga, whose grave, Manga ha Mari, is one of the sights of Pasrur and an object of veneration to the whole Bajwa tribe, both Hindus and Mahomedans. The initial rites of the marriage ceremony are celebrated on this spot by those Bajwas whose homes are not too far away to prevent a general family gathering.
