John Rogers: Baptized April 6, 1606 and appeared on the Leiden poll tax list of 1622.

Per author Eugene Stratton, the 1622 Leiden poll tax listed the family of Thomas Rogers residing there in poverty, but apparently without his wife Alice. Instead of Alice, this family included a possible second wife named Elizabeth – or the Dutch variant Elsgen, and with the children of Thomas Rogers – son John and daughters Lysbeth (Dutch for Elizabeth) and Grietgen (Dutch for Margaret).

He came to Plymouth from Leiden sometime after 1627 – possibly in 1630. On the Plymouth tax list for 1633 and the 1643 Able to Bear Arms List for Duxbury he was listed with his brother Joseph. He married Anna Churchman in Plymouth on April 16, 1639 and had four children. He died in Duxbury between August 26, 1691 and September 30, 1692.
