  • Notes 
    • The Great Migration Begins, pgs. 1597-1599: "In the 1623 Plymouth land division Joseph Rogers was granted two acres as a passenger on the Mayflower, for himself and his deceased father [PCR 12:4]. In the 1627 Plymouth cattle division Joseph Rogers was the fifth person in the eleventh company [PCR 12:12].

      "Sons Joseph and John were each assessed the minimum 9s. in the 25 March 1633 rate [PCR 1:11].

      "'Joseph Rogers and John Rogers, his brother,' were granted fifty acres of upland each at the North River, 6 April 1640 [PCR 1:144]."

      "In his listing of the passengers on the Mayflower Bradford includes 'Thomas Rogers and Joseph his son; his other children came afterwards,' and in his accounting of these families as of 1651 Bradford tells us that 'Thomas Rogers died in the first sickness but his son Joseph is still living and is married and hath six children. The rest of Thomas Rogers's came over and are married and have many children' [Bradford 442:446].

      "Robert S. Wakefield discussed the 1622 poll tax for Leiden which revealed Thomas Rogers's widow and children living in the Over't Hoff quarter of Leiden [TAG 52:110-13]. Since the widow, son John and daughters of Thomas Rogers were not in the land division of 1623 or the cattle division of 1627, they presumably came to Plymouth with the last of the Leiden contingent in 1629 or 1630."

      "The most comprehensive treatment of Thomas Rogers (and his descendants) is that published in 1978 by Alice Wilma Andrews Westgate as part of the second volume of the Five Generations Project of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants [MF 2:153-55]; see also MQ 43:103-04]. The most important advance beyond what appears in this volume is the discovery by Clifford Scott of the English origin of Thomas Rogers [TG forthcoming]."
