Origins of surname

This is a name introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. It is a form of the personal name Roger, which originally came but from the Germanic Rodger, composed of the elements 'hrod', meaning renown, and 'gari', a spear. There was already an Anglo-Saxon name 'Hrothgar', of similar derivation.

Early records

Roger is found in island documents early in the 14th century, and there was a short-lived family in the 17th century. Rogers first appears in Jersey church records in 1690, but then there was a gap until 1806 before a new family became established.

Variants
