    Notes 
    • James Rogers was baptized by Rev. John Crandall of Westerly, Rhode Island and was an active member of the early Rogerene church.  A great deal of his property was levied upon and sold for the payment of fines imposed by the church of the established order, for infractions of its ordinances, and he was imprisoned and otherwise punished for his adherence to the church of his choice.

      He was referred to as "mariner," and appears to have been a shipmaster to the last.  He also had a tannery and is mentioned in the Court of Assessments as a cooper.  He had large landed possessions and the inventory of his estate filled three folio pages. The household articles were numerous and costly for the times.

      He commanded the vessel which brought over the family of Jeffrey Jordan. He purchased the eldest daughter, Mary Jordan and married her. [Research of Cheska Callow Wheatley]
