Jutland peninsula

The Jutes were a Germanic people who are believed to have come from Jutland (called Iutum in Latin) in modern Denmark inclusive Southern Schleswig in Northern Germany and part of the Frisian coast. The Jutes, along with the Angles, Saxons and Frisians, were mentioned amongst the Germanic tribes who sailed across the North Sea to raid and eventually invade Great Britain.

It is believed that the Jutes settled particularly in Kent and the Isle of Wight. The land where the Jutes, Angles, and Saxons settled became the country of England.

The Jats are the parent tribe from which sprang those Jits or Jutes who invaded the north of Europe, and settled, amongst other places, in Jutland.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

You will be among your own people there, for you are a Jat and the men of Kent are Jats from Jutland", and no doubt he (Col. Sleeman) was speaking ethnological truth."; Quote 2: "The Jat Sikhs mighty and curled of beard, kin perhaps to the men of Kent, the Jutes from Jutland."
