The first to be called Fitz Roger was:

Aaron I Fitz Roger b. abt 1249, [SIC] Rome Italy, d. 1335 Somerset, England (Fitz means son of)

"...This ancestry left a large number of descendants in Sicily, South Italy, Naples and Rome; and during three generations, the sons of Roger (called 'Fitz Roger'), variously flourished in and about the papal city; and finally one "Aaron Fitz Roger" (in England) alleged - a merchant of Rome, from fear of persecution from the Roman Church, fled with his family to London, and engaged in mercantile business there.


Rogers from Italy to England: John Fitz Roger, Gentleman

I left off yesterday with the first Rogers in England, Aaron Fitz Roger (abt. 1249-1335). [WARNING FLAG...people didn't live into their nineties in those days often! I would guess some of his dates aren't right.]

He married Gonnora Crepon, 1240-1313.

There's even family crest for the Crepon family.

Aaron's son was...


"Aaron II (or John) Fitz Roger "born the latter part of the thirteenth century in Italy - of Norman parentage, probably ab. 1260-70, removed with his family, embracing at least two sons, to London, England; where he continued his business of merchandising.

Aaron's son (ie Aaron III) is a MP and in his About Me is the following text (unsourced):

"Religious upheaval in Sicily forced Aaron Fitz Rogers, a merchant of Rome, to flee to London where he engaged in business. The Rogers Family were given the right to bear the coat of arms accredited to Grand Count Roger I of Sicily. Aaron Rogers was born in Italy c. 1260/70.

1. Aaron FitzRoger born c. 1265 of Rome, Italy; died c. 1330 London, Middlesex, England. The family business was merchandising after settling in Kent, Gloucestershire and Somersetshire. "

The son's profile shows birth as circa 1280 so perhaps favour the lower date for Aaron II, ie born 1260 died 1330.

I'm not sure why religious strife in Sicily would result in someone fleeing Rome but perhaps a quick lesson on Sicilian history could provide a date for Aaron II emigrating to England?
