The Rajputs of Shahjahanpur primary include Gaurs (Pawayan Zamindari) and Katehrias(Khutar Zamindari). Of course few Rathores and others also exist The area is a very fertile belt and was a part of Rohilkhand which was separated from Awadh and came under United Provinces of Agra and later UP. I am from Pawayan, the largest Rajput Riyasat in the area.
