Administrative History or Biographical Sketch

The Rogers family was established in Upper Canada when James Rogers (1728-1790) led a group of loyalists from the United States to the north shore of Lake Ontario to claim the lands granted to them for military service on the British side during the American Revolutionary War. Descendents of James Rogers were very active in politics, farming, business and the military.
