Hi I visited Bisley churchyard recently looking for Rogers graves but didn't find anything. I was wondering if in the book any surname Rogers may be mentioned it would help an awful lot if you could let me know. Many thanks.
These are the only references to the name Rogers and the reference J79 has this explanation; Oval metal plate. Originally on flat stone in the churchyard George Rogers of Bussage, Clothier 27.5 1757 Age 37.
and J80, Rectangular metal plate. John Rymer of this parish, Gentleman 16.7. 1757 age 90 Hester his wife, dau. of George Rogers of Toadsmor 19.6.1780 Age 87 (BR: Age 85)
BR refers to the Burial Register
J means inside the church and the metal plates were originally fixed to a tombstone in the church yard.
I have \"Historical Records of Bisley\" by Mary Rudd.
There are 11 Rogers in the index, if you tell me exactly which Rogers you are looking for I will see if there is any more information I can help you with.
However, I type with two fingers so I would want to scan the pages and send an attachment to you rather than type any or all the information. I do not suppose bisleyonline will want attachments sent to the list so please ask the web master how we can get around this?
Hi James Rogers baptised about 1750 is the only one I know for sure is on my tree. I am interested in any Rogers at the moment until I figure out who is who. He married Sarah Franklyn about 1770. I have found it more difficult the further back I go and I'm a bit stuck at the moment. His father is Jeffery Rogers, but he seems even more elusive, and Jeffery seems an unusual name.
