       After succeeding male heirs of the Hall family of Bradford on Avon intermarried with the families of Bowyer of Wilton, Tropenell of Chalfield and Mervyn of Fonthill, we find John Hall, the next heir of this family, described as 'of Forde' married to Dorothy, daughter and sole heiress of Anthony Rogers who died in 1583.  Anthony Rogers was the last male representative of this branch of the Rogers family in Bradford on Avon.  By this pairing, the Besill estate was once again under one roof.  She also brought into the marriage her own patrimony, part of which was located at Holt. Her mother was Anne daughter of Thomas Wroughton. 

"Anthony Rogers of Bradford, Esq., son and heir of Anthony, mar. Ann, da. of Thomas Wroughton of Broughton, co. [Hants.] South'ton, Esq., and by her had issue, Dorathe, his only dau.; which mar. to John Hall, son a heir of Thomas Hall, and by her hath issue, Thomas Hall and John Hall, living," per, The visitation of Wiltshire 1565, By William Harvey, p. 39.  

Anne Wroughton of Moores Court, Isle of Wight, daughter of Sir Thomas Wroughton, married Lancelot Lisle and they had son Thomas Lisle.  Lancelot Lisle died and his manorial rights passed to his widow Anne who then married Anthony Rogers, son of Anthony Rogers and Dorothy Ernely, grandson of William Rogers and Joan Horton and great grandson of Thomas Rogers and Cecilia Besill. Cecilia's sister Margaret married Nicholas Hall. Anthony Rogers and his wife Anne held courts at Holt from 1544 to 1556; grandson Anthony Lisle, son of Thomas Lisle, succeeded her. Dorothy Rogers b. c1540, dau. and heir of Anthony Rogers of Bradford and Anne Wroughton, married John Hall, son of Thomas Hall and Elizabeth Mervyn.
