    Notes 
    • Came in the "Mayflower" with his son Joseph. A camelot merchant on the tax rolls of St. Bartholomew the Great, London. The other children came later. Thomas died in the general sickness six months after arrival. Thomas was the 18th signer of the Mayflower Compact. He brought with him a picture of his grandfather, the martyr who was burned at the stake. The picture is said to now hang in the Gallery of the American Antiquarian Society at Worcester, Massachusetts.

      Excerpt from Mayflower Increasing: "Thomas ROGERS was probably born in England his date & place of birth and parentage are unknown. He died the first winter in Pymouth, sometime after the signing of the Mayflower Compace on 11 Nov. 1620. His wife was Elsgen/Elizabeth who was living in Leiden, Holland in 1622, a widow with children Joh, Lyseth/Elizaeth and Grietgen/Margaret. Bradford states that "the rest of Thomas Rogers' children came over and are married and have many children." Son Joeph came with his father and it is known fro the records that son John came to Plymouth bef.1630. Alathough proof has not yet been found in the records, Bradford's statement implies that his daughters came over as well. He states the children wo came over had MANY children; son Joseph had only four children which would not be considered "many" in those days. Therefore it is very likely that some day researchers will "find" daughters Elizaeth and Margaret which will result in new Mayflower lines being opened up."
