Notes for Rev. John Rogers:
The following is extracted from the Family Tree Maker Site for John Rogers - The First Protestant Martyr:
"John Roger's, (1500-1555), a English Reformer and Editor of Matthew's Bible and the first Protestant Martyr of Queen Mary I's reign as Queen of England. He was born at Aston near Birmingham, England, and educated at Pembroke Hall, University of Cambridge (Received his BA in 1526). Six years later 1532 he was the Rector of the Holy Trinity, London, England, and in 1534 he went to Antwerp, Belgium as Chaplain to English merchants working in Belgium. There he met William Tyndale "A leader of the Reformation and translator of the Bible into the King James Version" under Tyndale-s influence he abandoned the Roman Catholic faith, and married an Antwerp, Belgium Lady named Adriana Pratt. "
"After William Tyndale's death in 1536 John Roger's, carried on with work on the English version of the Old Testament on which Tyndale had been working. He used it as far as II Chronicles, employing Miles Coverdale's translation of 1535 for the remainder and for the Apocrypha writings per the Catholic Church. Tyndale's New Testament had been published in 1526. The complete Bible was
published under the pseudonym of Thomas Matthew in 1537; it was printed in Antwerp, Belgium and Richard Grafton bought the sheets and obtain permission to sell this edition all 1,500 copies in England."
"Roger's had little to do with the translation, but he contributed some valuable prefaces and notes to the new Bible. His work was largely used by those who prepared the Great Bible of 1539, out of which in turn came the Bishop's Bible of 1568 and the King James Authorized Version of the Holy Bible of 1611."
"After taking charge of a Protestant congregation in Wittenger, Belgium for several years, Roger's in 1548 returned to England, where he published a translation of Philip Melanchton's "Considerations of the Augsburg Interim."
"In 1550 John Roger's was presented to the crown linings of St. Margaret Moyese and St. Sepulcher in London, and in 1551 was made a prebendary of Saint Paul's Cathedral, London, where the Dean and chapter soon appointed him divinity lecture. On the accession of Mary to Queen of England in 1553. John Roger's was preaching at Saint Paul's Cross commending the "true doctrine taught in King Edward's days" and warning his hearers against "pestilent Popery, idolatry, and superstition." Ten days later on August 16, 1553, he was summoned before the council and told to stay within his own house. In January of 1554 the Catholic Bishop of London sent him to Newgate, where he was imprisoned for a year. On January 22, 1555, John Roger's, with ten others, was brought before the council
in Southwark, and examined by the Inquisitor. On the 28th and 29th he came before the commission appointed by Reginald Cardinal Pole and was sentenced to death for heretically denying the Christian charter of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and the real presence in the Sacrament. John Roger's was burned at the stake on February 4, 1555."
"Nearly 300 victims are known to have perished at the stake, and their fate created a revulsion against Rome that nothing else was likely to have effected and earned Mary the nickname of "Blood Mary." At the time of this writing the year is 1995, this was some four hundred and forty years ago. John Roger's became the first Protestant Martyr of the reign of Queen Mary the First, daughter of King Henry VIII, of England and Catherine of Aragon. Queen Mary the 1st, died on November 17, 1558, this ended the persecution of the Protestants and the political power of the Catholic Church in England. John Roger's was related to Queen Mary, via their 5th, great
grand father John De Stourton. They were also 7th cousins via their other common Great Grand Father and ancestor Edward the First [Longshanks] King of England.

Broderbund CD World Family Tree Volume #13, Pedigree #920, Extracted Oct. 25, 1997 by Sammye Woodruff. Combined with Turner-Rogers Family History. John Blount, the first husband of Elizabeth Furneaux occupation was the Constable of the Tower. John Fitzrogers is buried at St Martins Church, Bryanstone, England. John Rogers born about 1507 was the first to publish the Bible in English. He graduated from Cambridge in 1525. He was burned at the stake as a heretic. Documentation is as follows: John Rogers, Vicar of St. Sepulchre's, and Reader of St Paul's, London. John Rogers was educated at Cambridge, and was afterward many years chaplain to the merchant adventurers at Antwerp in Brabant. Here he met with the celebrated martyr William Tyndale, and Miles Coverdale, both voluntary exiles from their country for their aversion to popish superstition and idolatry. They were the instruments of his conversion; and he united with them in that translation of the Bible into English, entitled "The Translation of Thomas Matthew." From the Scriptures he knew that unlawful vows may be lawfully broken; hence he married, and removed to Wittenberg in Saxony, for the improvement of learning; and he there learned the Dutch language, and received the charge of a congregation, which he faithfully executed for many years. On King Edward's accession, he left Saxony to promote the work of the reformation in England; and, after some time, Nicholas Ridley, then bishop of London, gave him a prebend in St Paul's Cathedral, and the dean and chapter appointed him reader of the divinity lesson there. Here he continued until Queen Mary's succession to the throne, when the Gospel and true religion were banished, and the Antichrist of Rome, with his superstition and idolatry, introduced. "
"The circumstance of Mr. Rogers having preached at St Paul's cross, after Queen Mary arrived at the Tower, has been already stated. He confirmed in his sermon the true doctrine taught in King Edward's time, and exhorted the people to beware of the pestilence of popery, idolatry, and superstition. For this he was called to account, but so ably defended himself that, for that time, he was dismissed. The proclamation of the queen, however, to prohibit true preaching, gave his enemies a new handle against him. Hence he was again summoned before the council, and commanded to keep his house. He did so, though he might have escaped; and though he perceived the state of the true religion to be desperate. "
"He knew he could not want a living in Germany; and he could not forget a wife and ten children, and to seek means to succor them. But all these things were insufficient to induce him to depart, and when once called to answer in Christ's cause, he stoutly defended it, and hazarded his life for that purpose. After long imprisonment in his own house, the restless Bonner, bishop of London, caused him to be committed to Newgate, there to be lodged among thieves and murderers."
"After Mr. Rogers had been long and straitly imprisoned, and lodged in Newgate among thieves, often examined, and very uncharitably entreated, and at length unjustly and most cruelly condemned by Stephen Gardiner, bishop of Winchester, the fourth day of February, in the year of our Lord 1555, being Monday in the morning, he was suddenly warned by the keeper of Newgate's wife, to prepare himself fore the fire; who, being then sound asleep, could scarce be awaked. At length being raised and awaked, and bid to make haste, then said he, "If it be so, I need not tie my points," And so was had down, first to bishop Bonner to be degraded: which being done, he craved of Bonner but one petition; and Bonner asked what that should be. Mr. Rogers replied that he might speak a few words with his wife before his burning, but that could not be obtained of him. "
"When the time came that he should 'be brought out of Newgate to Smithfield, the place of his execution, Mr. Woodroofe, one of the sheriffs, first came to Mr. Rogers, and asked him if he would revoke his abominable doctrine, and the evil opinion of the Sacrament of the alter. Mr. Rogers answered, "That which I have preached I will seal with my blood." Then Mr. Woodroofe said, "Thou art an heretic." "That shall be known," quote Mr. Rogers, :"at the Day of judgment." "Well,": said Mr. Woodroofe, " I will never pray for thee." "But I will pray for you." said Mr. Rogers; and so was brought the same day, the fourth of February, by the sheriffs, towards Smithfield, saying the Psalm Miserere by the way, all the people wonderfully rejoicing at his constancy; with great praises and thank to God for the same. And there in the presence of Mr. Rochester, comptroller of the queen's household, Sir Richard Southwell, both the sheriffs,
and a great number of people he was burnt to ashes, washing his hands in the flame as he was burning. A little before his burning, his pardon was brought, if he would have recanted; but he utterly refused it. He was the first martyr of all the blessed company that suffered in Queen Mary's time that gave the first adventure upon the fire. His wife and children, being eleven in number, ten able to go, and one sucking at her breast, met him by the way, as he went towards Smithfield. This sorrowful sight of his own flesh and blood could nothing more move him, but that he constantly and cheerfully took his death and wonderful patience, in the defense and quarrel of the Gospel of Christ." (Fox's Book of Martyrs by Jon Foxe, Chapter 16, Persecutions in England during the Reign of Queen Mary.)"
