Bellew [5] writes that The Adam-khel is a large and important clan of the Afridi, and is reckoned at four thousand families ; and is largely engaged in the salt trade between the Kohat mines and the high-lands to the north and west beyond the British border. The Adam-khel occupy the Kohat and Charhat hills, and are quite distinct in location, habits, and interests from the other Afridi clans, and belong to neither the Samal nor Gar factions, but join either as found expedient at the moment. They are in three divisions, —

These all are collectively styled Katori ; so that the whole of the Adam-khel are Katori, which is the name of a celebrated Jata tribe.

The Jat clan Afridi are in five divisions : — 1. .Mita. 2.Adam. 3.Ula. 4.Aka. 5.Miri.[6]
