Fonds consists of records relating to the history of the Rogers family that were created by several generations of Rogerses and other people related to them by marriage. The records document aspects of the social, military and political lives of the family. Other record creators in this fonds include such Rogers relations as the Greeley family of Colborne, the Cassady family of Kingston, the Eberts family and Waddell family of Chatham, and the Merritt family of St. Catharines, Ontario.
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.
