About Elizabeth Rogers (Rowland)

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=41506623 Birth: unknown, England Death: unknown, USA

Elizabeth Rowland was the daughter of Samuel Rowland of Stratford. She married James Rogers (abt. 1615 to early 1687/8) by about 1640. They had seven children: Samuel, Joseph, John, Bathsheba Smith Fox, James, Jonathan, & Elizabeth Beebe. James Swift Rogers included precise dates of birth for the six youngest children of this immigrant, stating that the "births of the children are recorded in Milford," but only son Jonathan actually appears in those records. In the 1670s most members of the Rogers family became adherents of the Seventh-Day Baptists of Rhode Island. Three sons of the immigrant joined that church in 1674 and 1675, and in 1676 James Rogers, his wife, and daughter Bathsheba also joined. Within a few years John Rogers, son of the immigrant, split away from the Seventh-Day Baptists and formed his own sect, in which he was followed by his father and most other members of the family. John Rogers and some of his followers, especially his sister Bathseba, expressed themselves repeatedly by disrupting the meetings of the New London Congregational church, and as a result were often fined and jailed. This sect has become known as the Rogerene Quakers

Notes

  • CT Nutmegger, Volume 28, page 568

The Public Record Office in London contains a copy of a "license to go beyond the seas," dated April 15, 1635. Among those "to be transported to New England imbarqued in the "Increase"" is James Rogers, 20 years. In 1637 James Rogers was one of six men from Saybrook who took part in the Pequot War. A few years late James was in Stratford, CT where he married Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Rowland. For a time James Rogers was in Milford, where his son Joseph was born, and thereafter he became prominent in New London.
