About Jean Rogier

... Suggested may have been on the ship China.. Two men named Jean Roger appear in the books; one from Picardie early in 1687 and a Jean Antoine Roger from le Bousqet (near Spain) in October 1687


AND in Boucher:

The place of origin of the burgher Jean Rogier, who arrived in Table Bay in 1699 as a twenty-six year old soldier aboard the Ceylon-bound Zion, was perhaps the Flemish village of Moorseele, west of Courtrai on the Heulebeek, although Moresnet towards Aix-la-Chapelle (Aachen) may be intended. There was a flourishing Calvinist church in this area, with a temple at Vaals. Rogier, promoted to corporal in 1703, obtained his discharge on October 13, 1711* Boucher.M (1981).
