Irish Family Name of the Day:
Rogers
(see also our March 7, 2011 episode on ‘Rodgers’.)

Todays family history in honor of member :
Margaret Misak.

Related Spellings of the Name
Rodgers, Rogerson, Rory, MacRory, Rorison, McRoary,
Magrory, M’Arory…..

Varient Spelling Groups:   #1286, 1366, 1806, 1807
From: Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names

http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

Irish Family Notes
Most often tied to the Province of Ulster in Ireland, the
name is surely of English origins as well as Irish.
It is given as arriving with the 12th century Norman
invasions of Ireland.
Some of the name come from the Irish name of MacRory,
which also change into Magrory, MacArory, etc…

Records
The family is found in the 1890 birth index and our
‘Families of Clanna Rory’ book also gives note of the
family in Ireland, and its line of descent.

Chiefs and Clans in the 12th Century
Our County Tyrone genealogy and family history book, one
of many that hold the name in our Irish Family series,
gives ‘MacRory or MacRogers, chiefs of Tealach Ainbith
and of Muintir Birn, districts in the baronies of Dungannon
and Strabane”. In more modern time ‘Rogers’ is given as the
54th most common name in the U.S..

Varient Spelling Groups:   #1286; 1366; 1806

http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
The 1890 birth index finds the family numerous in Antrim,
Down, Dublin and Roscommon. Rogers is also a fairly
numerous English name, which will account for some in
Ireland.  McRory  is an Irish name which has been changed to
Rogers or Rodgers.
In our Families of the Clanna Rory in Ireland, we find MacRory
and/or Rodgers given as chiefs of Dal-Buine, centered in Upper
Massarene and specific adjoining parishes.
The book ‘Irish Families on the California Trail’ also gives
Rogers and McGinnis among those early settlers in Bakerville
in the American west. Rogerstown, County Dublin, is also given
in the Irish Book of Arms.
