Information that might justify speculation that Alice died in Leiden (albeit inconclusive), from the Richmond Family Ancestry website: http://www.richmondancestry.org/thomasrogers.shtml

Robert Wakefield’s examination of the 1622 Leiden poll tax lists reveal that when Thomas [1] Rogers left for America his wife Alice, two daughters Elizabeth and Margaret, and son John remained in Leiden.[13] In the household of Antony Clements, apparently one of the English Separatists who did not emigrate to Plymouth, are found the following persons:

  • 1. Jan Thomasz orphan from England without means
  • 2. Elsgen (Alice) [14] Rogiers, widow of Thonis Rogiers an English woman in the back part of the house or in the kitchen
  • 3. Lysbeth (Elizabeth)
  • 4. Grietgen (Margaret)

In the Dutch patronymic system Jan Thomasz is equivalent to John, son of Thomas. His placement above Thomas Rogers’ widow and his description as “orphan from England” suggest that he is John [2] Rogers, later of Plymouth. It has been speculated that the daughter Elizabeth came to Plymouth and married Samuel [1] Eddy, since the latter was granted land at Plymouth on 3 June 1662 reserved for “the firstborn children” of the colony or their parents. As Samuel did not in his own right qualify on either count, it is possible that his wife Elizabeth was a daughter of Thomas [1] Rogers. [15]

In summary, the primary evidence gathered from Dutch and New England sources establishes that Thomas Rogers had a wife named Alice, who survived him, and a least four children: Joseph, John, Elizabeth and Margaret, probably born in that order. Joseph was likely the eldest because he came with his father to Plymouth in 1620, while the birth orders of the others is suggest by the tax list. Thomas left England by 1616 or 1617, when he bought his house at Leiden.

  • m/2 Thomas Rogers,
  • m/3 Roger Porter; in Eng, b 14 May1610; Dedham, Eng.

---

Her parents were Tobias and Katherine. They resided at Fingeringhoe, Essex, England.

In “Ancestry of Rev. John Sherman and Capt. John Sherman” (NEHGR 51:309-315 (1897)), the author reviews the various wills of the time and concludes that Grace was most likely the daughter of Tobias Makin although confusion about her being born a Coolidge remains, and that she married multiple times:

m Rev. John Sherman (who died by 1625) by whom she had two sons -- Capt. John Sherman and Richard Sherman -- both under 21 in 1625.

m Thomas Rogers (who died 1638) by whom she had a daughter Elizabeth (who married Daniel Smith) (a 1625 will of Anne Sherman Auger/Anger includes: “I give to the two children of the wife of Thomas Rogers, John Sherman and Richard Sherman, my kinsmen, ten shillings a piece at their ages of one and twenty.” This bequest tells that Thomas Rogers married a widow whose former husband was named ___ Sherman, by whom she had these two children, John Sherman and Richard Sherman.

m William Palmer, widower (who died shortly after 1650). Palmer’s daughter Martha, by a former wife, had married Capt. John Sherman. They were married before Thomas Rogers died, for their first child John Sherman was born November 2, 1638.

m Roger Porter, widower, who died April 3, 1654, aged 71.

Her baptism took place on May 10. Her birth was likely within a month or two before her baptism. (Unfortunately, birth records weren't generally kept during this early period of English history, only baptismal records by the local parish church.)

May 10, 1573
Watford, Northamptonshire, England

With reference to the baptismal record of Alice (Cosford) Rogers:
http://www.richmondancestry.org/thomasrogers.shtml

Alice Cosford, who married Thomas Rogers at Watford 24 October 1597, was almost certainly a daughter of George Cosford baptized there 10 May 1573. The name is by this time almost illegible; Watts speculated that it was "Anne" but Mrs. Powell states that it "could equally be Anne or Alice"...
