Misc. Notes
Savage provides an extraordinarily long entry on Nathaniel Rogers in which he refutes the claim that Nathaniel is a descendant of the “proto-martyr” of Queen Mary’s reign. Details to be entered.

According to Morison,781 Nathaniel Rogers was “born at Haverhill, Suffolk, 1598, the second son of ‘Roaring John’ Rogers (B.A. 1592, lecturer at Dedham and author of Doctrine of Faith) by his first wife, Bridget Ray. John’s father was brother to Richard Rogers, father of Ezekiel (q.v.). Admitted sizar at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, 1614; scholar; B.A. 1617-18; M.A. 1621; ordained 1619; curate at Bocking, Essex; rector of Assington, Suffolk, 1630. Emigrating with his wife in 1636, in the same ship with Ralph Partridge, he succeeded Nathaniel Ward as pastor of the church of Ipswich in 1638; John Norton was his colleague. ‘An able disputant, whose mouth the Lord was pleased to fill with many arguments for the defence of his truth’ (Johnson, W.W.P., p. 88). Died July 3, 1655. Father of President John Rogers (A.B. Harvard 1649), Ezekiel Rogers (A.B. 1659), and Mary, who married William Hubbard (A.B. 1642). Waters, G.G.E., I. 209-36.”

Cotton Mather provides a biographical account of Nathaniel Rogers in his Magnalia.
