I looked through the record of the marriages down to 1637 inclusive, and found a few other Rogers marriages, which it hardly seems worth the while to print. Thomas, Henry, John, William and Richard Rogers had numerous children baptized and buried. Of these I pick out the children
Margaret, September 26, 1562.
Katherin, November 25, 1584.
Rose, March 29, 1590.
Frances, March 10, 1593.
The burial of Margaret, the wife of Mr. Rogers, I did not find. He evidently married again; for I found the burial of "Alice wyf to Mr Thomas Rogers," August 17, 1608. His own burial is thus given:
1610 (11) February 20, Thomas Rogers, one of the Aldermen.
THOMAS ROGERS of Stratford upon Avon in the County of Warwick yeoman 27 Aug. 1639, proved at Worcester 21 May 1640.

[The two forms of spelling this surname are interesting for two reasons; first, as showing the loss of the guttural final g sound in Rasing (in connection with which it may be well to note that the crest of this family was a hand grasping a bunch of grapes), and, secondly, as illustrating the sound of the diphthong ea in Reason. I have seen many similar instances showing that in Shakspeare's time the word was pronounced like raisin. Recall Fallstaff's play on the word in Henry IV. Part I. Act ii. Sc. 4: "Give you a reason on compulsion! If reasons were as plenty as blackberries I would give no man a reason upon compulsion."-H. F. W.]
