Rogers, Richard an English Puritan minister, was born about 1550, and entered the ministry in 1575. He preached through the eastern counties of England forty-three years, suffering molestation from the officers, but acquiring considerable prominence among the dissenting divines. He died at Weathersfield, Essex, April 21, 1618. His publications include Seven Treatises (Lond. 1605, fol. and several other editions), a kind of theological manual, much used by the early divines of New England: — Certain Sermons (1612): — Commentary on the Whole Booke of Judges (1615). Mr. Chester, in his John Rogers (1861), pages 238-244, disputes Calamy's oft-repeated assertion that this divine was a descendant of the martyr. See Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.
