It appears that Mehra community of Mehra Gaon is either the original community of the area or very early migrants from other parts of India, not later immigrants like the Karkis who may have migrated from Champawat or Nepal. This is suggested by the very name of the village. Moreover, the Mehra community is a well known community of North India. Either a branch of this community established this village or a branch from this community migrated to work for the Moghuls in Agra. There is also a strong possibility that the Mehras came from the Mehra community of Champawat (spelt as Mahra there) who had followed the Chand dynasty to that region from the Northern plains in earlier centuries.

Since the time of Akbar, the Mehra community  has spread in Northern India by aligning with other Suryavanshi Kshatriya families of Northern India. The growth of the Mehra community in Northern India appears to have been rapid after the time of Akbar when they allied with two other communities of North India, the Kapoors and the Khannas to form the caste grouping known as Dhai Ghar Khatris. The Dhai Ghar Khatris later included another group such as Tandons, Kakars or Seths in different parts of Northern India to form a tradition Char Ghar (four houses) for ease of marital alliances.
