The Rogers family in our tree are from Eskdale, Cumberland. We have seen the name with different spellings –Rodger, Rodgers or Roger.
William Rogers who died at Dalegarth, Eskdale in 1800 is at the head of the tree. He married Jane Pool at Eskdale in 1740. William and Jane had four children, two sons and two daughters. Jonathan, their eldest son, married but had no children. When he died in 1831 he left the bulk of his estate to his nephew Joseph, who was the son of Jonathan’s brother Joseph.
Joseph Rogers, born in 1745, married Elizabeth Vicars at Eskdale in 1777. Joseph and Elizabeth had seven children and farmed at Brotherilkeld, at the head of the Eskdale valley. Their eldest son Joseph married Hannah Sharpe at Eskdale in 1808, and continued farming at Brotherilkeld with his family.
Peggy, Joseph and Elizabeth’s eldest daughter, married Nicholas Stephenson of Crosbythwaite, Ulpha at Eskdale in 1804. Peggy was my 4 x great grandmother.
Dinah and Sarah, two more of Joseph and Elizabeth’s daughters, both married a Sharp.
Jonathan, Joseph and Elizabeth’s second son, married Jane Bell at Eskdale in 1820. Jonathan and Jane farmed and had a family at Dalegarth, Eskdale.
