s. of Alderman John Rogers, mayor of Hull 1652, by Elizabeth, da. of Edward Nelthorp of Barton-on-Humber, Yorks.1
Rogers succeeded his brother-in-law, William Maister, at Hull, voting against the Government in the division of 4 June 1717 on Cadogan, with them on the repeal of the Occasional Conformity and Schism Acts, and against them on the peerage bill in 1719. Re-elected in 1722, he voted for the government candidate, Sir Henry Hoghton, at a by-election in 1724, after ‘wishing himself damned if he or his voted thus’.2 He did not stand in 1727. The date of his death is unknown.
