Re: Rodgers of Scotland
No, all I know of the Rodger seamen of the eastern shores of Scotland is what I have gleaned from the web. (Captain Alexander). While the family is inter-twined with Anstruther, Graham, and more, I have no verbal history to fall back on. Great-grandfather Alexander made many voyages between Newfoundland and the British Isles, but as a merchant, and aboard steamers in the late 1800's. Correspondance with Lord Rodger of Earlsferry yielded his lack of knowledge of roots to the eastern shore, or Strathearn, in spite of his title. (Claimed western roots closer to Lord Rodger of Queensferry, near Glasgow). Captain John could be a related ancestor through "Rodgie of Cowden", (Rogerson), rather than through "Roge of Drumdewan), (Rogerson), my line.
All the same source ancestory though. Quite a history!
